The Journal of Alloys and Compounds is a peer-reviewed scientific journal covering experimental and theoretical approaches to materials problems that involve compounds and alloys. It is published by Elsevier and the editor-in-chief is L. Schultz (TU Dresden). It was the first journal established to focus specifically on a group of inorganic elements.[1]

History

The journal was established by William Hume-Rothery in 1958 as the Journal of the Less-Common Metals,[2] focussing on the chemical elements in the rows of the periodic table for the Actinide and Lanthanide series. The lanthanides are sometimes referred to as the rare earths.[1] The journal was not strictly limited to articles about those specific elements: it also included papers about the preparation and use of other elements and alloys.[2]

The journal developed out of an international symposium on metals and alloys above 1200°C which Hume-Rothery organized at Oxford University on September 17-18, 1958. The conference included more than 100 participants from several countries. The papers presented at the symposium "The study of metals and alloys above 1200°C" were published as volume 1 of the journal.[2] It was the first journal dealing specifically with a category of inorganic elements.[1]

The title of "Less-Common Metals" was something of a misnomer, since these metals are actually found fairly commonly, but in small amounts.[1][3] The journal obtained its current name in 1991[4] and is considered a particularly rich source of information on hydrogen-metal systems.[5]

Retractions

In 2017, Elsevier was reported to be retracting 3 papers from the journal, which was one of several to be affected by falsified reviews, which led to a broader discussion of the processes for reviewing journal articles.[6][7][8][9]
