About the book

The advanced engineering materials applied in the field of tribology are currently capturing the focus of prominent researchers in several high-tech areas. There are large numbers of challenges that can be solved by improving the compatibility of the materials in contacts in various tribological applications. Therefore, there is a vast scope of utilization of advanced materials in the biomedical and engineering field by enhancing the current knowledge about composition, fabrication, properties, and performance of materials with the aim of providing solutions to many unaddressed issues in tribology. This book welcomes submissions on current research activities on tribology of advanced material, research articles from broad and interdisciplinary fields from academia and industrial researchers working in the field of tribology. The book aims to enclose all applied and fundamental elements related to fabrication or synthesis, combination or composition, properties, characteristics and performance of engineering materials in the field of tribology.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dajana Pemac

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
