The Association of Computational Materials Science and Surface Engineering ACMSSE and World Academy of Materials and Manufacturing Engineering WAMME by the use of its publishing agenda – the International OCSCO World Press has been publishing the Journal of Achievements in Materials and Manufacturing Engineering for last three years, the Archives of Materials Science and Engineering for last two years and co-operates with Polish Academy of Sciences to publish the Archives of Materials Science for last two years. Moreover, two years ago the WAMME Academy and the ACMSSE Association began the cooperation with the Inderscience Publishers in Switzerland in order to publish a bimonthly – the International Journal of Computational Materials Science and Surface Engineering IJCMSSE. The first year of the cooperation which was 2007 gave very good results. 6 issues of the 1st Journal Volume appeared. Unfortunately, then in spite of sending on time all the necessary materials to a few next issues, none of issues was published. In fact since 1st January 2008 the journal has stopped to exist because of the reasons totally independent and unknown to the Editorial Team. Many months an unfruitful correspondence including subsequent reminders to publish delayed issues lasted and then finally in January 2009 as an Editor-in-Chief with a support of the Deputies-in-Chief, Associated Editors together with a few dozen-person Editorial Board and the Authorities of ACMSSE Association, we made a difficult decision to finish the cooperation of ACMSSE with the Inderscience Publisher and to began a new journal – Archives of Computational Materials Science an Surface Engineering under the scientific patronage of ACMSSE Association as a quarterly, in which at the beginning the papers which waited for long for the publication in IJCMSSE will be published. Together with me all the members of the previous editorial boards recommended by the ACMSSE Association and the WAMME Academy moved there. The first issue of the new Archives of Computational Materials Science and Surface Engineering under the scientific patronage of the ACMSSE Association, as a quarterly is handed to readers and authors. I am sure that ACMSSE Archives will fast achieve its readers and avoid difficulties which affected IJCMSSE. Its publisher is at present the International OCSCO World Press. I wish nice reading of gathered papers and invite for the cooperation.
