Warrendale, PA, USA and New York, NY, USA (PRWEB) April 02, 2013
The Materials Research Society (MRS) and Cambridge University Press have announced that they will be launching a new authoritative review journal focusing on energy and sustainability.
The new journal, MRS Energy & Sustainability: A Review Journal, http://www.mrs.org/energy-sustainability-journal/, will launch in early 2014. MRS Energy & Sustainability aims to be a high-impact technical review journal focusing on key topics in materials research and development as they relate to energy and sustainability applications.
Published content will be set in an integrated context of scientific, technological, and sociological complexities relating to environment and sustainability. Coverage will include reviews of new R&D; interdisciplinary systems integration; and objective application of economic, sociological, and governmental models enabling research and technological developments.
MRS Energy & Sustainability, as a primarily digital, online-only review journal, will offer essential authoritative content to a broad spectrum of energy and sustainability scientists, academics, policy makers, and industry professionals, all interested in the interdisciplinary nature of science, technology, and policy. The journal will be led by three distinguished Editors-in-Chief who are all experts in the field of energy and sustainability, and who demonstrate proven success in developing educational outreach in the areas of energy and sustainability:
•David S. Ginley - National Renewable Energy Laboratory
•David Cahen - Weizmann Institute of Science
•Sally M. Benson - Stanford University
David S. Ginley, Editor-in Chief, said: "With this high-impact review journal, we have an opportunity to define the context of the field of sustainability and facilitate its scientific development, while including the broader context of economics, sociology, and policy. The Editors-in-Chief look forward to working with the Materials Research Society and Cambridge University Press to launch this groundbreaking title."
"MRS is perfectly situated to understand and serve both the scientific and societal bases driving sustainable energy solutions and issues. Through our publishing partnership we aim to be the go-to resource for authoritative content and information on one of the great problems of our time" said Simon Ross, Managing Director at Cambridge Journals, and Deputy Managing Director at Cambridge University Press.
