Share Your Knowledge: Become a Matmatch Guest Author

on June 27, 2018

At Matmatch, an important part of our mission is give product designers, engineers, academics and researchers around the world easy access to materials data. And since our launch, millions of people have used Matmatch for exactly that reason. But that’s just one aspect of our mission.

We’re also a materials platform where people can share their knowledge and opinions. That’s why we decided to reach out to people who have the most expertise in engineering materials – people like YOU!

Many of you have detailed and specific knowledge in certain areas, so we thought, why not help you to share that knowledge? You can gain wider coverage of your ideas, and help the growing Matmatch community learn new things from experts.

That’s why we’re pleased to share more information about our ‘Guest Authors’ programme.

What is it?

Many of you have a passion. Perhaps it’s a certain class of materials, a manufacturing method or, more broadly, a particular industry. Some of you may also have dedicated many years to researching and learning about your area of interest. But it may also be the case that your unique knowledge never reaches a large audience, even though it could be interesting to a lot of people.

With that in mind, we decided to launch our ‘Guest Author’ programme, which allows materials experts from all over the world to share their knowledge and start a conversation. In this way, you’ll be able to express your opinion on a subject you really care about, receive feedback and open a dialogue.

The main reason for inviting guest authors is that it aligns with our goal of creating and nurturing a global community of experts. We can help our users both share their expertise with a large audience, and learn from the unique knowledge of their peers.

How does it work?

It’s simple – just get in touch with our editor, Samir (, if you find this idea exciting and would like to contribute.

We are currently looking for guest authors who are willing to write articles about materials, applications, processes, research and development, and the wider industry in general.

It could be a specific topic, such as “Making cheaper silicon for photovoltaics: Siemens process VS. Metallurgical route” or something visionary like “Additive manufacturing: the next wave in the industrial revolution”. At the end of the day, the key point is your desire to share knowledge.

By contributing, you can gain recognition from the wider materials community and share your knowledge with the world. Just look at what other guest authors say:

“I am eager to let the Matmatch audience discover new topics, with a community that helps to shape new ideas on materials and to turn them into reality.”

    “spreading the science is the tax of being a scientist” I say. as an materials engineer I was always eager to share my studies and thought with other. I used to have a community of public audience in social medias and now seeing a platform with a much bigger audience in my studying field is so promising 👌🏼

    I agree Mahyar. If we’ve done our homework, we have something to share.
