Dear Readers and Authors of Materials and Structures,
It is our pleasure to announce to you a recent improvement in our journal.
In August 2016, according to a RILEM decision, Materials and Structures changed from a traditional, issue-based publication scheme to Continuous Article Publication (CAP). The CAP scheme is currently applied to all articles accepted in Materials and Structures, leading to extremely fast publication.
The previous scheme was based on publishing the articles first online (Online First) shortly after receiving the corrected proofs from the authors. The article was then scheduled for publication in a future issue. Only after being published in an issue, the article would receive the full bibliographic data (pages, volume and issue number, year). This process resulted in a backlog of online papers waiting to be published in final form.
The CAP scheme readily solves all these problems by waiving the issue-based delays and publishing directly and continuously all new articles in their final form online, with full bibliographic data. Articles published in the new scheme are marked with a unique consecutive article number that replaces the consecutive page numbers. According to the CAP scheme, each accepted article is immediately added to an issue and appears online in final form in two to four weeks after acceptance.
In addition to the faster publishing process brought about by CAP, together with the Editorial Board and our volunteer Reviewers we make every effort to ensure a rapid and competent review process.
I trust that, thanks to the fast publishing process and high visibility and impact of articles published in Materials and Structures (Impact Factor 2015 2.453), you will consider publishing your groundbreaking research results in Materials and Structures.
On behalf of the editorial board, technical team and the whole RILEM community we thank you for your interest in Materials and Structures and invite you to visit the journal at http://link.springer.com/journal/11527.
