The “Iranian Journal of Materials Forming (IJMF)” is an open access international journal in the fields of materials deformation and forming processes published by the Department of Materials Science and Engineering of Shiraz University since 2014. The journal publishes two issues per year and provides an international medium for the dissemination of original researches in the fields of material forming, shaping and material workability. However, with the aim of increasing the publication speed of the authors' work, it will be published on a quarterly basis from 2021 making it possible to have 24 articles published per year.
The quality and credibility of the journal has been ensured by appointing some of the most well-known professors in the world as members of its editorial board. Submissions will be reviewed by at least two reviewers. If they are not rejected, comments will be sent to the authors. The revised article will be resubmitted to reviewers. After the approval of the final referee, a letter of scientific acceptance is given. IJMF is indexed by Islamic World Science Citation Center (ISC) in the English E-Journals Database.
