A new journal, Materials, Surfaces and Interfaces, will be published by IOM3 and Maney Publishing in 2007 and will include a range of multidisciplinary papers covering a broad spectrum of engineering tribology and applications. The first issue will cover the use of advanced surface analysis techniques for boundary lubricated surfaces.
