Materials Research Society and Cambridge University Press announce the launch of an online-only review journal, MRS Energy & Sustainability, for early 2014

It may only be early April, but the Materials Research Society and Cambridge University Press have announced today that they will be launching a new online-only review journal focusing on energy and sustainability. The journal, MRS Energy & Sustainability: A Review Journal, will launch early next year.

The focus of the new digital journal will be materials research and development related to energy and sustainability applications.

"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," said David S. Ginley who will be one of the digital journal's editors-in-chief.

Ginley, who is from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, will be joined by David Cahen from the Weizmann Institute of Science, and Sally M. Benson from Stanford University.

The Materials Research Society is headquartered in Warrendale, Penn. and is an international organization of over 16,000 materials researchers from academia, industry and government which promotes the advancement of interdisciplinary materials research. Cambridge University Press is the publishing business arm of the University of Cambridge (UK).
