Recent Progress in Materials is an international peer-reviewed Open Access journal published quarterly online by LIDSEN Publishing Inc. This periodical is devoted to publishing high-quality papers that describe the most significant and cutting-edge research in all areas of Materials. Its aim is to provide timely, authoritative introductions to current thinking, developments and research in carefully selected topics. Also, it aims to enhance the international exchange of scientific activities in materials science and technology.
Recent Progress in Materials publishes original high quality experimental and theoretical papers and reviews on basic and applied research in the field of materials science and engineering, with focus on synthesis, processing, constitution, and properties of all classes of materials. Particular emphasis is placed on microstructural design, phase relations, computational thermodynamics, and kinetics at the nano to macro scale. Contributions may also focus on progress in advanced characterization techniques.
Main research areas include (but are not limited to):
Characterization & Evaluation of Materials
Inorganic nonmetallic materials
Sustainable Materials and Technologies
Special types of Materials
Macro-, micro- and nano structure of materials
Environmental interactions, process modeling
Novel applications of materials
Archiving: full-text archived in CLOCKSS.

About the topic
The construction sector is one of the largest industries in the world and is predicted to become a $15.5 trillion industry worldwide by 2030. One of the vital challenges of construction materials is the amount of CO2 emission from their production and implementation phases. New innovative technologies and advanced materials could bring significant changes, enhancing productivity, improving sustainability, increase effectiveness. Accordingly, the construction industry requires a new generation of lighter, smarter, more robust, durable, cost-effective, and sustainable materials to be designed, tested, and implemented in the future of building and infrastructure construction. Design, Synthesis and Development of Innovative and Green Construction Materials perspective from material design/ synthesis /development, processing, testing, implementing, and up to monitoring are essential issues in this Special Issue.
The topics of interest for publication are – but are not limited to design, study the properties in different scales, and durability of novel construction materials, including:
