MUSE, in cooperation with the Materials Development Association (MATSDA), is pleased to announce that we have published work in the September 2018 issue of the materials-based journal, Folio. The article has open access. To download the MUSE article click here.
MUSE members jointly penned two pieces for Folio. First, we wrote an Open Letter to the MATSDA readership to introduce ourselves, explain what we do, and invite members of the academic community to join in our quest to better understand materials use.
Second, our MUSE team wrote an article to explain what we view as a mutually beneficial relationship between our vision of Materials Use research and the field of Materials Development. MUSE writers offer a working definition of what we mean by materials use, detail current literature on the subject, share vignettes about work by our current members, and synthesize this work into a model for the direction for future research in the area of materials use.
Additional Folio articles are available on materials as open access from the MATSDA website here.
