Springer Nature and the Materials Research Society (MRS) have signed a strategic new publishing agreement that will come into effect starting on January 1, 2021. At that time, the two organisations will partner to publish all five journals in the MRS portfolio—MRS Bulletin, Journal of Materials Research (JMR), MRS Communications, MRS Energy & Sustainability, and MRS Advances—as well as books. In addition, Springer Nature will host the archived content of the long-standing MRS Online Proceedings Library (OPL) and the MRS Internet Journal of Nitride Semiconductor Research (MIJ-NSR).
Overall, this new alliance will build on the strong brands and reputations of both organisations, and expand the boundaries of the traditional publisher-society relationship. MRS boasts a 47-year reputation as a leader in disseminating innovative, high-quality, interdisciplinary materials research through its publications and meetings.
The experience and expertise Springer Nature brings in the strategic development of society journals will ensure that the very best content and offerings in materials science and engineering reach the relevant communities worldwide.
