Matmatch Guest Author Programme Unites Materials Scientists of the World

Those who work in the materials industry know that the knowledge often “gets stuck” in books, PhD papers and research labs. The real insights and findings rarely find its way to the general public, and therefore get locked or lost. We want to change that.

Our ambition is to become not just a materials platform, but a place where people can share their knowledge and opinions, discuss innovative projects and inspire others for more discoveries. Matmatch is not just a database – we are a community of smart, brilliant minds that believe the cornerstone of any innovative product is materials. Materials are at the heart of every new product on the market – whether it’s a smartphone, electric vehicle, or smart textile.

So, we launched our guest author programme on June 27, 2018, and it became a huge success. Since then, we published more than 35 guest author articles and collaborated with more than 25 scientists from all over the world! This project shows that the materials community is ready to go digital to unlock a powerful world of knowledge through sharing and exchanging. 

More about the guest author project here.

The future looks bright, and we are excited to continue the journey. Here is what our guest authors say about Matmatch, materials science and the future:

“I’m always looking for new and exciting ways to communicate materials science and reach new audiences, and the Matmatch guest author programme seemed like a great way to help me do exactly that.”

“Being aware of today’s new materials and their technologies is as important as being bilingual. Everybody should have at least a general idea about the present revolution in materials science and technology, as it slowly reshapes the world we are living in. Matmatch makes this whole ‘awareness’ process extremely exciting, aiding to the revolution and, consequently, to e better life for us all.”
