ICES Professor James Chelikowsky has been named to the editorial board of Physical Review Materials, a publication of the American Physical Society.
The publication is a new broad-scope international journal for the multidisciplinary community engaged in research on materials. It is intended to fill a gap in the family of existing Physical Review journals that publish materials research. The field has grown rapidly in recent years and is increasingly being carried out in a way that transcends conventional subject boundaries. The journal was created to provide a common publication and reference source to the expanding community of physicists, materials scientists, chemists, engineers, and researchers in related disciplines that carry out high-quality original research in materials. It will share the same commitment to the high quality expected of all APS publications.
Chelikowsky holds the W.A. "Tex" Moncrief Jr. Chair in Computational Materials within the Institute, and serves as a professor in the Departments of Physics, Chemical Engineering, and Chemistry, and director of the Center for Computational Materials.
