International Journal of Abrasive Technology (IJAT)
Abrasive technology concerns the manufacturing processes that involve the
use of abrasives in a variety of forms. It has a long history originating
from the discovery of minerals. With the increasing requirements for the
production of high precision and high surface quality components in various
applications, such as silicon wafers in the semiconductor industry and
optical lenses in the precision instrument industry, abrasive technology is
becoming increasingly important in precision manufacturing.
International Journal of Abrasive Technology (IJAT) is a fully refereed
journal that publishes peer-reviewed quality papers in the area of abrasive
technology covering theoretical and applied research, new technologies and
The objectives of IJAT are to provide a prime forum and communication
channel for the interchange of information among academic researchers and
industrial practitioners on the science, technologies and applications
associated with precision and abrasive processing engineering.
IJAT publishes original research papers, review papers, technical papers and
notes, short communications, case studies, and book reviews. Special issues
devoted to the development of important topics in abrasive technology will
be published periodically to compile selected papers from submissions to
significant international conferences and symposiums and invited papers from
