Journal overview

This title has ceased (2018)

  Advanced Device Materials focuses on materials and/or metamaterials for applications in photonics, communications, micro- and nanoelectronics, imaging, sensing and acoustics. A particular focus is the formation or integration of these materials into functional and multifunctional structures and devices with enhanced and unusual properties. New materials, (nano)structures, microarrays and components can be designed and fabricated to create discrete electronic/photonic components that are integrated into circuits. An important aspect of these applications is based on the confinement and manipulation of light using advanced materials, for example, giving rise to sub-wavelength phenomena that can be integrated into next-generation devices such as bio- and other sensors. Artificially structured electromagnetic materials - metamaterials - can also be used to contrive novel manipulations across the electromagnetic spectrum.

The journal will publish papers in these areas and so span research into the theory, design and fabrication of metamaterials, microwave, photonic or plasmonic materials, the investigations of their properties and the successful integration of these materials into devices for applications such as photodetectors, sensors and biosensors, solar cells, photovoltaics, etc.

Particular emphasis will be given to those papers which exemplify both materials developments and their integration into functioning structures or devices, including novel manufacturing approaches.

As an Open Access journal, all papers published in the journal are made free to access online as soon as they are published, meaning anyone can read and cite the paper, and authors are able to retain copyright of their work. To support this model, Article Publication Charges (APC) apply, and the standard APC for this journal is £460 / US$600 / €530. A range of APC discounts are available, including those for board members, for authors submitting to special issues, and authors from developing regions.

Depending on your location APC charges may be subject to local taxes.

  Peer Review Policy

All submitted manuscripts are subject to initial appraisal by the Editor. If found suitable for further consideration, papers are subject to peer review by independent, anonymous expect referees. All peer-review is single blind and submissions can be submitted online via

Publishing Ethics

The journal adheres to the highest standards of publishing ethics, with rigorous processes in place to ensure this is achieved. Taylor & Francis is a member of  Committee of Publications Ethics  (COPE) and utilises  CrossCheck  for all Journals. More information on our ethical standards and policies can be found here:
