Aims & Scope

Soldering & Surface Mount Technology seeks to make an important contribution to the advancement of research and application within the technical body of knowledge and expertise in this vital area. Soldering & Surface Mount Technology compliments its sister publications; Circuit World and Microelectronics International.

Key benefits

Soldering & Surface Mount Technology is a unique, authoritative, international and multi-disciplinary periodical for those with a research and application interest in all branches of soldering and surface mount technologies. The journal covers all aspects of SMT from alloys, pastes and fluxes, to reliability and environmental effects, and is currently providing an important dissemination route for new knowledge on lead-free solders and processes. All submissions are subject to double-blind peer review.

Key journal audiences

Soldering & Surface Mount Technology represents a comprehensive and independent information source for research, application and current awareness purposes for researchers, senior technical staff and practising engineers within the electronics assembly industry, contract manufacturers, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and users together with all academic branches of engineering and science together with their information providers, namely academic, institutional, technical and corporate libraries.


The journal comprises a multidisciplinary study of the key materials and technologies used to assemble state of the art functional electronic devices.  The key focus is on assembling devices and interconnecting components via soldering, whilst also embracing a broad range of related approaches.  Among the range of topics covered are:
