and Analysis was fortunate to receive a number of very high-quality manuscripts. Looking back through the 2018 issues, I am impressed with the variety of topics that were covered, from practical articles discussing the preparation of challenging materials to papers that discuss complex transformations and their role in determining microstructure and ultimate properties. As always, selecting the top five from the year’s published manuscript was challenging, but ultimately, the five listed below rose to the top of the ranking due to their thorough analysis of microstructure, and for their clear, concise discussion and interpretation.
