Frontiers journals are at the top of citation and impact metrics
The Quantum Materials section publishes high-quality fundamental and applied research advancing the field of quantum materials and related quantum effects. Quantum materials are characterized as having unique properties stemming from their finite size, surfaces and interfaces, and quantum mechanical properties related to spin, charge, and orbital nature. Systems include, but are not limited to:
Of particular interest are studies that highlight advances in quantum materials for specific technological applications such as the development of atomic clocks, telecommunication/navigation, quantum computing, quantum memory, spin batteries, spintronics, photovoltaics and various sensing and imaging modalities. The scope of this section is not restricted to applied work, therefore, it operates in close collaboration with our sister Journal, Frontiers in Physics.

Quantum Materials welcomes submissions of the following article types: Specialty Grand Challenge.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Quantum Materials, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Quantum Materials will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Materials.
