About this Journal

    This journal is published in six issues per year. Some issues, in whole or in part, may be Special Issues focused on a topic of interest to our readers.

    This flagship ASTM journal is a multi-disciplinary forum for the applied sciences and engineering. Published bimonthly, JOTE presents new technical information, derived from field and laboratory testing, on the performance, quantitative characterization, and evaluation of materials. Papers present new methods and data along with critical evaluations; report users' experience with test methods and results of interlaboratory testing and analysis; and stimulate new ideas in the fields of testing and evaluation.

    Major topic areas are fatigue and fracture, mechanical testing, and fire testing. Also publishes review articles, technical notes, research briefs and commentary. All papers are peer-reviewed.
