Releases 2016 Technical Calendar

JOM - Rarely has one letter stood for so much. JOM, back when it was launched in 1949, was the straightforward acronym for Journal of Metals. A closer JOM’s publication reveals that the M representing the Metals portion of the title actually cast a very wide net. In 1950 alone, technical contributions ranged from “Ammonia Leaching of Nickel and Cobalt Ores” (M.H. Caron), to “The Textures of Cold-Rolled and Annealed Titanium” (Howard T. Clark, Jr.), to “Modern Baghouse Practice in the Recovery of Metallurgical Fumes” (A.L. Lobbe and J. J. Donoso), to “Electrical Resistivity and Thermoelectric Power of Antimony-Seleni Alloy (B.D. Cullity and M. Telkes), to “Today’s Scrap: Availability, Condition, and Contamination” (Ralph W. Farley and Ray J. McCurdy). Even at this early stage, the journal also found room for news (“Cerro Bolivar: Saga of an Iron Ore Crisis Averted” [John T. Norton]) and the member voice (“Metallurgy Behind the Decimal Point” [Earle E. Schumacher]). This early proclivity to cover the range of metals at nearly every point of the lifecycle, while also giving members the opportunity to share news and ideas on the advancement of the profession, became more pronounced as the journal—and the TMS membership—evolved. Serving the expanding interests of TMS members meant that the journal expanded its technical coverage, as well, to include articles on other materials systems. In 1988, the journal adopted the JOM the M standing in for the array of materials—and all of their related technologies and topics—of interest to TMS members (the most important “M” in the equation.) Releases 2016 Technical Calendar This selection of recent JOM covers speaks to a few of the technical themes and topics planned for 2016 . With the release of its 2016 Technical Emphasis Calendar, JOM has remained true to that calling card, with technical themes that build on the foundational discussions presented in its earliest pages, as well as topics inviting exploration of emerging technologies. The 2016 JOM Technical Emphasis Calendar also serves as a means of examining the current state of the technical particular emphasis are topics that advance knowledge and practice in the industrial setting. Advanced Materials and Manufacturing, Alloy Production and Corrosion, and Metallurgy and Processing are a few of the themes that engagement. Even themes tied to the TMS strategic goals related to energy and environmental challenges (Energy and Processing), as well as materials and manufacturing innovation (Additive Manufacturing), have been developed to examine their linkages to industrial application. The full 2016 Technical Emphasis Calendar is outlined on the next two pages, with an interactive version available at the JOM website at All of the topics represent hours of work by JOM’s team of volunteer advisors to ensure that the journal’s content is of the highest value and relevance to its diverse readership. For further insights into how JOM’s advisors are building their topics, turn to the article, “Meet the JOM Advisors for 2016” also published in the July 2015 JOM topic match for your particular interest, visit the Author Tools section of the JOM website to access resources that can assist with your important contribution to the M in JOM. . .your manuscript.
