Mass Spectrometric Detection in Liquid Phase Separations 2016
The hyphenation of separation methods with mass spectrometry (MS) can be seen as one of the major topics in analytical chemistry. Nearly every liquid phase separation technique has been combined with MS and in many areas MS is going to replace other detection methods as the detector of choice. Major reasons for that is the excellent performance of MS with respect to selectivity and sensitivity as well as the additional gain in information due to the availability of (high resolution) MS and multi-stage MS spectra.
ELECTROPHORESIS has a long tradition in publishing Special Issues covering all areas of capillary electroseparation techniques and their combination with MS, leading to at least eight issues describing the newest developments in "Capillary Electrophoresis — Mass Spectrometry". Due to the great success of the 2014 issue, for 2016 a Special Issue covering all aspects of Mass Spectrometric Detection in Liquid Phase Separations has also been scheduled. This Special Issue will contain original research contributions from all areas of pressure-driven and electro-driven techniques coupled to MS, including theory, techniques, methodology, detection, and all kinds of applications.
It is my great pleasure to invite you to contribute a manuscript to this special issue. Your work can be either an original paper describing full investigations or a short communication describing brief, timely and important results. Also review articles are welcome, provided prior discussion of the topic of the review with the editor. The deadline for manuscript submission is October 1st 2015. Each manuscript will be reviewed according to the policy of ELECTROPHORESIS. Please also note the mandatory page charge for contributions exceeding 8 printed pages (except for reviews; see Author Guidelines online for details). The special issue Mass Spectrometric Detection in Liquid Phase Separations is scheduled for spring 2016.
Online submission is encouraged (please see http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/elpho and click YES when asked for special issue). Please send an e-mail with the tentative title of your contribution to email@example.com at your earliest convenience. I hope that with your article the Special Issue will again be a success and a significant contribution in the fields of LC/CE-MS.
Looking forward to hearing from you I remain with best regards

Microfluidics and Miniaturization 2016
We would like to cordially invite you to submit a paper for a special issue focused on microfluidics and miniaturization. Since its start in 1999, this special issue has generated significant interest leading to a re-definition of the original scope of the journal and the addition of the new category of “Microfluidics and Miniaturization” to any regular issue of ELECTROPHORESIS. Nonetheless, the special issue on Microfluidics and Miniaturization has become a well- anticipated annual tradition focusing entirely on this exciting and ever evolving field.
With Microfluidics and Miniaturization 2016 we would like to continue this tradition, and we encourage submission of articles covering all aspects of miniaturized systems, including theoretical and practical considerations in their design, fabrication and applications. The suggested topics include (but are not limited to) chip design, miniaturized separations, micro total analysis systems (μ-TAS), lab-on-a-chip systems (LOC), miniaturized chemical and optical sensors, detection aspects, microfluidic interfacing, sample preparation, mass spectrometry coupling, bioreactors and cell manipulation. Theoretical aspects as well as their application to analytical and bioanalytical challenges (pharmaceuticals, environment, genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, diagnostics, forensics, food, ...) will also be considered.
The deadline for submission of the manuscripts is set for June 20, 2015. The publication date of the Microfluidics and Miniaturization 2016 will be the first half of February 2016; however, all papers will be available on-line as soon as possible after acceptance. Additional information and directions for authors are available on the web at: http://www.electrophoresis-journal.com. Please submit your manuscripts electronically at: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/elpho indicating that it is intended for this special issue, or contact one of the co-editors directly.

Pharmaceutical Analysis 2015
ELECTROPHORESIS is one of the leading journals in analytical chemistry specifically in the area of electrophoretic techniques. This is, in part, due to the regularly appearing paper symposia covering important topics by review articles and research papers in a precise and comprehensive way. Issues 12 of 2006, 17 of 2008 and 11 of 2012 reported paper symposia entitled Pharmaceutical Analysis recognizing the importance of electrophoretic techniques in drug analysis. Currently, we are planning another paper symposium on this topic covering all aspects of electrophoretic analysis techniques such as capillary electrophoresis, capillary electrokinetic chromatography, micellar electrokinetic chromatography, capillary electrochromatography, capillary gel electrophoresis, isoelectric focusing, SDS-PAGE, 2-dimensional electrophoresis, etc. The emphasis is on pharmaceutical analysis, practical problems and applications of electrophoretic techniques in drug development and quality control including regulatory issues, bioanalysis, validation, quantitation and method development will be covered. Articles comparing electrophoretic approaches to other techniques such as liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry are very welcome as well.
This special issue of ELECTROPHORESIS will not only highlight the importance of electrophoretic techniques in drug analysis but will also have a strong impact on further developing such analytical methods for the characterization of pharmaceuticals.
It is our pleasure to invite you to contribute to this special issue of ELECTROPHORESIS. The article could be either a full research paper or a short communication describing timely and important new developments. The deadline of submission is April 30, 2015. Manuscripts will be reviewed according to the policy of the journal. The issue is scheduled to appear in Autumn 2015.
Please submit your contribution electronically via ELECTROPHORESIS Manuscript Central at the website http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/elpho and refer to the special issue Pharmaceutical Analysis on submission. Please note the mandatory page charge for contributions exceeding 8 printed pages (except for reviews; see Author Guidelines for details).
Please forward this call for papers to any colleague who may be interested in contributing.
Please send an e-mail to either of us with a tentative title of your contribution at your earliest convenience.
