    The aim of this journal is to publish fundamental research on all aspects of plastic deformation of solids, including theoretical, computational and experimental advancements. The scope covers plasticity related aspects on all length scales and includes related phenomena as fatigue, fracture and material damage.

    Topics of interest include mechanical aspects of dislocations, point defects, grain-boundaries and inclusions, mechanical twinning and mechanical phase transformations, collective behavior of defects, statistical aspects of plasticity and materials failure, as well as the macroscopic plastic and fatigue behavior of solid materials. Experimental techniques of interest include microscopic characterization of defects and microstructure as well as micro-, meso- and macro-mechanical testing. Theoretical works may, for instance, be dealing with mathematical modeling of defects and irreversible deformation, thermodynamical constitutive modeling, non-local models, homogenization techniques and statistical mechanics of defects. Computational methods may range from quantum mechanical calculations and molecular dynamics over discrete defect based methods and texture models to macroscopic continuum mechanical simulations. We highly welcome work on multiscale modeling and contributions connecting theoretical, computational and experimental findings. Materials of interest include single and polycrystalline metals, ceramics, bulk metallic glasses, granular materials as well as porous and composite materials.
