Aims & Scope

Advanced Materials & Sustainable Manufacturing is an international, cross-disciplinary, scholarly, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to development of sustainable, everything connected and AI-based manufacturing systems in the frame of Industry 4.0 and 5.0.  Especially, it will focus on publication of state-of-the-art fundamental and applied research in the follow topics:  1) sustainable design for smart material-based advanced sensors and actuators enabling to acquire relevant data and optimize human-machine-product-environment interactions in various manufacturing processes with minimized environmental impacts; 2) circular economy and sustainability of manufacturing based on advanced materials and processes, including material and product recycling, development of green materials and their processing technology and environmental impacts minimization; 3) sustainable data-driven intelligent manufacturing systems dealing with products, equipment, people, information, control and support functions for the economic and competitive development, production, delivery and total lifecycle of products to satisfy market and societal needs with minimized environmental impacts or recycled raw materials. Publications can be either generalized methodologies applied to a large range of manufacturing systems or approaches dedicated to specific industrial areas, including textile, food, paper making, light industry, machinery.
