《Acta Metallurgica Sinica(English Letters)》(ISSN 1006-7191, CN 21-1361/TG) started in 1988. It is administrated by China Association for Science and Technology, sponsored by the Chinese Society for Metals, and managed by Institute of Metal Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Beginning with V.22 (1) 2009, this publication was indexed/abstracted in Science Citation Index Expanded.
《Acta Metallurgica Sinica(English Letters)》 provides an international medium for the publication of theoretical and experimental studies related to the fields of metallurgy, materials science and engineering. The studies which advance the understanding of the relationship between the processing, the structure and the properties of inorganic materials are of particular interest. Emphasis is on either the mechanical or functional behavior of inorganic solids at all length scales down to nanostructures.The journal does not seek or publish papers on concrete and cement-based systems nor on polymeric and polymer-based materials.
The abstract should be no longer than 300 words. It should be informative, without descriptive words or citations, and contain the major conclusions and quantitative results or other significant items in the paper. Together with the title, the abstract must be adequate as an index to all the subjects treated in the paper, and will be used as a base for indexing.
Immediately after the abstract, provide a maximum of 6 keywords.
Variables should appear in italic text. Vectors should appear in bold italic text. Capital and lower-case letters should be distinguished clearly where there could be confusion. Fractional exponents should be used to avoid root signs. Extra symbols should be introduced to avoid complicated exponents or where it is necessary to repeat a complicated expression a number of times. The slash (/) should be used wherever possible for fractions. Mathematical derivations that are easily found elsewhere in the literature should not be used.
Notation must be legible, clear, compact, and consistent with standard usage. All unusual symbols whose identity may not be obvious, including subscript or superscript, must be made comprehensible. Physical and mathematical variables should be in italic, vectors in boldface. Units, abbreviations and special functions should be upright. Please add notes to explain any other special symbols.
Follow internationally accepted rules and conventions: use the international system of units (SI).If other quantities are mentioned, give their equivalent in SI.
Format: High-resolution figures must be uploaded during manuscript submission. The preferred format for figure submission is TIFF format (*.tif).
（1）. Image Size: An image intended for the journal's double column format (i.e., an image to fit into the space of a single column on the 2-column layout), should be sized to 6.5 cm. Images submitted for a layout that spans full columns (i.e., an image that will occupy the full-page width) should be sized to 13.5 cm, and complicated figures should have a maximum width of 15 cm. In the figures, the main lines should be about 0.3 mm in width, and the assistant lines 0.15 mm. Notations in the figures should be distinct and consistent with the same ones in the text, and their font size will be 8-10 pt.
（2）.Image Resolution: Line drawings and graphs must have a resolution of at least 1200 dpi when they are exported. Photographs and micrographs must have resolution of at least 300 dpi (600 dpi if there is text or line art in the figure). Please use LZW compression (which does not affect resolution) when saving figure files. Lower-resolution images will not reproduce properly and will not be accepted.
（3）. Color: Submit color graphics in CMYK format; the colors chosen must reproduce effectively and the colors should be distinguishable when printed in black and white; The descriptions of figures in text and captions must be sufficiently clear for both online and print copy.
Tables, numbered in order of appearance, should be appended on separate sheets and identified with appropriate titles. The table title, which should be brief, goes above the table. A detailed description of its contents or table footnotes should be given directly below the body of the table.
References must be published work, and numbered consecutively in order of their first citation. References should be listed individually at the end of the text and indicated in the text with a superscript number in square brackets. All of the authors, as well as the titles of the reference articles should be given. It is strongly recommend that authors try to employ the recently published articles, and it is appropriate that more than 50% references are published in the recent three years. Here are some examples of how to set the most common reference types:
