Corrosion Science publishes papers covering both the theory and the practice of corrosion science and interprets the term very broadly. The areas covered include but are not limited to high temperature oxidation, passivity, anodic oxidation, biochemical corrosion, stress corrosion cracking, and mechanisms and methods of corrosion control. Both original papers and critical reviews are considered in pure and applied corrosion, the degradation of materials, and both surface science and engineering. The journal forms an important link between metallurgists, materials scientists, and all investigators of corrosion and degradation.
