Aims and Scope

Polymer physics has evolved dramatically in the fifty years since the launch of the Journal of Polymer Science by Hermann Mark. Today’s polymer physics is an interdisciplinary science that has expanded beyond its traditional core to fields as diverse as energy materials, biological systems, optics and electronics, and nanotechnology.

The Journal of Polymer Science: Polymer Physics reflects the broader interests of today’s polymer physics research community, providing a dedicated forum for rapidly reporting breakthroughs in polymer physics and the application of polymer physics problem solving.

You can look forward to an exciting mix of comprehensive reviews, visionary insights, and high-impact communications and full papers that represent the gamut of the science of polymer systems, from theory to experiment to applications.

Our in-house editorial staff of full-time, experienced PhD scientists ensures fast, professional, and neutral peer review of your contribution. After publication, our team will work to ensure that your paper receives the recognition it deserves by your peers and the broader scientific community.
