Editorial Policies

Authors should read the “Author Guidelines” before making a submission, and make sure that the manuscripts were written in accordance to the style and specifications of the journal’s policy.

All manuscripts submitted to Materials Technology Reports (MTR) are subject to rigorous peer review. Prior to the peer review process, manuscripts will be screened for acceptable English, novelty and relevance to the Focus and Scope of the journal.

Any manuscripts submitted to Materials Technology Reports (MTR) will be treated as confidential materials. Manuscripts will not be disclosed to anyone except individuals such as editorial staff, reviewers and editors who participate in the initial screening, review, processing and preparation of the manuscript for publication (if accepted).

A manuscript would not be accepted if it has been published or is currently under consideration for publication in any other journals. The authors are required to notify the editorial team if the findings and data in their submissions have been presented in conferences.
