Materials Science is an interdisciplinary study that involves discovering and designing new materials and analyzing their properties and structure. The Materials Science Research Network on SSRN is an open access preprint server that provides a venue for authors to showcase their research papers in our digital library, speeding up the dissemination and providing the scholarly community access to groundbreaking working papers and early-stage research. SSRN provides the opportunity to share different outputs of research such as preliminary or exploratory investigations, book chapters, PhD dissertations, course and teaching materials, presentations, and posters among others. SSRN also helps Materials Science scholars discover the latest research in their own and other fields of interest, while providing a platform for the early sharing of their own work, making it available for subsequent work to be built upon more quickly.
Materials Science involves elements of physics, chemistry, and engineering. MatSciRN provides a venue for researchers to showcase early stage versions of their research and offers an opportunity for collaboration with researchers in other related fields.
