Archives of Materials Science and Engineering, with a tradition dating back to 1978, has been published by the Association for Computational Materials Science and Surface Engineering in cooperation with and under the auspices of the Commitee of Materials Science of the Polish Academy of Sciences as a monthly since 2007. In 2015 it received 13 points during the evaluation by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education journals and was situated at the 7th place among journals in the field of materials science, materials engineering, mechanical engineering, metallurgy, mechanics and production engineering on the ICI Journals Master list 2014 announced in December 2015 by the Index Copernicus. The journal is refereed by the Directory of Open Access Journals, Index Copernicus, Google Scholar, Scopus, Scirus, Ulrich's Periodical Directory, Dragon Library Catalogue, BazTech, Journalseeker, Worldcat, Libsearch and was presented for evaluation by Thomson Reuters in Philadelphia, USA.
The journal achieved a very attractive graphic form, a multicolour print and a new format, analogical to the JAMME ones. It also inherited from Archives of Materials Science the subsequent numbering – Volume 28. After a year of experiences on the basis of the agreement between the Chairman of Division IV Technical Sciences of the Polish Academy of Science, Prof. Władysław Włosiński, and the President of the Word Academy of Materials and Manufacturing Engineering AMME, Prof. Leszek A. Dobrzański, in 1st January 2008 the WAMME Academy took the only scientific patronage under that journal which achieved the high level and editorial and organisational efficiency last year. It was decided that the numbering which has been used so far will be continued. The Editorial Team of AMSE decided that since 2008 six volumes will be published yearly, each including 2 Issues – analogically as in a case of the Journal JAMME.
