Materials Highlights has been re-launched by Athena International Publishing and is now open again for new submissions. Since its launch in 2019 the journal has been published by Atlantis Press which was acquired by Springer Nature at the beginning of 2021. Two volumes were published in 2020 and 2021, but after the acquisition of Atlantis Press it was decided to discontinue the journal and transfer its ownership back to the Founding Editor. As of 2022 (Volume 3), Athena International Publishing is the new publisher of Materials Highlights which will continue as a tri-annual publication with issues scheduled in April, August and December. All articles published in the journal before this transfer will also be migrated to the Athena platform. Gareth Williams and Deng-Guang Yu will continue as the journal's Editors-in-Chief while the Editorial Board remains largely unchanged. Materials Highlights is now open for submissions again which will be temporarily accepted via email until the setup of the new online submission system is completed.
