Additive Manufacturing is a peer-reviewed journal that provides academia and world-leading industry with high quality research papers and reviews in additive manufacturing. The journal aims to acknowledge the innovative nature of additive manufacturing and its broad applications to outline the current and future developments in the field.

Additive manufacturing technologies are positioned to provide a disruptive transformation in how products are designed and manufactured. From this, there was a need to create a fast-publication journal which provides a unique publication outlet for engineers, materials scientists, practitioners in academia, and virtually any industry as these technologies are incorporated in new product and medical implant design and manufacturing.

The journal covers a wide scope, comprising new technologies, processes, methods, materials, systems, and applications in the field of additive manufacturing.
