Research & Development in Material Science provides an international media for the publication of experimental and theoretical studies related to the load-bearing capacity of materials as influenced by their basic properties, processing history, microstructure and operating environment. RDMS is a relatively new scientific field which involves studying materials through the materials paradigm (synthesis, structure, properties and performance). It incorporates elements of physics and chemistry and is at the forefront of nanoscience and nanotechnology research. RDMS focuses on scientific and/or engineering factors affecting the relationships of materials, particularly appropriate for research and development in material science. RDMS is primarily interested in those contributions which bring new insights. Papers will be selected on the basis of the importance of the new knowledge they provide. The main theme of this journal is to spread the advanced research technologies in Materials Science and Engineering. RDMS journal cordially accepts all research papers, review articles, short communications, mini- reviews, opinions, letter to editors etc.
