Short Communications are short articles which state or present original and significant material for rapid dissemination. For example, a Short Communication may focus on a particular aspect of a problem or a new finding that is expected to have a significant impact. Short articles include, but are not limited to: discovery or development of new materials, cutting-edge experiments and theory, novelty in simulation and modeling, elucidation of mechanisms. As Short Communications are expected to have higher than average impact on the field rather than report on incremental research, they will receive prioritized and rapid publication. The short communication paper of AMECJ is similar to the short communication of the Journal of Nuclear Materials, Elsevier.
Short Communications are limited to 2500 words and are not subdivided. The paper should contain an abstract, main body, acknowledgment (if there is) and references, and contain no more than 6 figures or tables, combined. Moreover, the abstract is limited to 170 words.
