Annales de Chimie: Science des Materiaux (ACSM) is a top-rated international journal that publishes scientific papers, concerning the cutting-edge innovations in solid material science. The journal covers a broad spectrum of scientific fields, ranging all the way from metallurgy, semiconductors, solid mineral compounds, organic macromolecular compounds to composite materials. The editorial board encourages the submission of original papers that deal with all aspects of material science, including but not limited to synthesis and processing, property characterization, reactivity and reaction kinetics, evolution in service, and recycling. The papers should provide new insights into solid materials and make a significant original contribution to knowledge.
Focus and Scope
The ACSM welcomes original research papers, technical notes and review articles on various disciplines, including but not limited to:
- Metals and alloys
- Solid inorganic compounds
- Molecular and macromolecular organic materials,
- Composite materials
- Synthesis and processing
- Characterization (composition, structure, texture)
- Properties (thermodynamic, chemical, physical, mechanical)
- Relationships between material structure and properties
- Reactivity and reaction kinetics
- Evolution in service
The ACSM is published regularly by the IIETA as of 2019, with six regular issues (excluding special issues) and one volume per year.Regular Papers

Peer Review Statement
The IIETA adopts a double blind review process. Once submitted, a paper dealing with suitable topics will be sent to the editor-in-chief or managing editor, and then be reviewed by at least two experts in the relevant field. The reviewers are either members of our editorial board or special external experts invited by the journal. In light of the reviewers’ comments, the editor-in-chief or managing editor will make the final decision over the publication, and return the decision to the author.
There are four possible decisions concerning the paper: acceptance, minor revision, major revision and rejection. Acceptances means the paper will be published directly without any revision. Minor revision means the author should make minor changes to the manuscript according to reviewers’ comments and submit the revised version to the IIETA. The revised version will be accepted or rejected at the discretion of the editor-in-chief or managing editor. Major revision means the author should modify the manuscript significantly according to reviewers’ comments and submit the revised version to the IIETA. The revised version will be accepted or rejected at the discretion of the editor-in-chief or managing editor. Rejection means the submitted paper will not be published.
If a paper is accepted, the editor-in-chief or managing editor will send an acceptance letter to the author, and ask the author to prepare the paper in MS Word using the template of IIETA.
Plagiarism is committed when one author uses another work without permission, credit, or acknowledgment. Plagiarism takes different forms, from literal copying to paraphrasing the work of another. The IIETA uses CrossRef to screen for unoriginal material. Authors submitting to an IIETA journal should be aware that their paper may be submitted to CrossRef at any point during the peer-review or production process. Any allegations of plagiarism made to a journal will be investigated by the editor-in-chief or managing editor. If the allegations appear to be founded, we will request all named authors of the paper to give an explanation of the overlapping material. If the explanation is not satisfactory, we will reject the submission, and may also reject future submissions.
