Monolithic Phases

cfp_monolithic_phases.jpg

Dear Colleagues,
Over the past few years, ELECTROPHORESIS has published an increasing number of paper symposia in important and selected areas of liquid phase separation techniques. Together with the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal, and as Guest Editor, I would like to continue the strong commitment of ELECTROPHORESIS to providing the reader with the latest developments in some selected and timely topics.

With that in mind, I would like to invite you as an expert for application of monolithic supports for fast in process analysis (PAT) to send your contribution for the paper symposium on „Monolithic Phases“. The contribution can be a full research paper, a short communication, or a review article on monolithic phases for liquid chromatography (nano-LC, micro-LC and HPLC), capillary electrochromatography, and microfluidics. The contributions for this paper symposium will have many chances to influence future developments in the field of monolithic media. This special issue is scheduled for October 2017, and the deadline for manuscript submission is set for March 15, 2017.

Please submit your article online using the Electrophoresis website: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/elpho Additional information and directions for authors are available on homepage of the journal at www.electrophoresis-journal.com

Dielectrophoresis 2017

cfp_dielectrophoresis.jpg

Dear Colleagues,
We would like to invite you to submit a paper for the Special Issue “Dielectrophoresis 2017”. After the great success of the three previous installments of this series: “Dielectrophoresis 2015” (volume 36, issue 13), “Dielectrophoresis 2013” (volume 34, issue 7) and “Dielectrophoresis 2011” (volume 32, issue 17 and issue 18); we decided to organize again a special issue on this novel separation technique that is becoming a leading microscale method. The aim of this special issue is to promote the awareness in the scientific community on the recent developments and growing number of applications of this powerful electrokinetic transport mechanism. ELECTROPHORESIS is currently the journal that publishes most Dielectrophoresis articles and this fourth special issue will further the dissemination of the latest findings in this dynamic and fast evolving field.

Dielectrophoresis 2017 will be a highly anticipated special issue and we encourage submission of articles covering all aspects of dielectrophoretic miniaturized systems, including theoretical and practical considerations in their design, fabrication and applications. The suggested topics include (but are not limited to) microdevice design, bioparticle separations ranging from macromolecules to cells, bioparticle dielectric properties characterization, micro total analysis systems (micro-TAS), lab-on-a-chip systems (LOC), sample preparation. Theoretical aspects such as mathematical modeling of microdevice performance, application of dielectrophoresis in other disciplines such as genomic, proteomic, metabolomic, diagnostics and forensics will also be considered.

The tentative publication date for the special issue Dielectrophoresis 2017 is set at the end of the first half of 2017. Additional information and directions for authors are available on the web at: .Author Guidelines

The deadline for manuscripts submission is set for October 1st 2016. Please submit your manuscripts electronically at: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/elpho indicating that it is intended for this special issue, or contact me directly.

Microfluidics and Miniaturization 2017

Microfluidics_2017

Dear Colleagues,
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 regular issues 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 2017 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 (micro-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 of miniaturized systems 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 15, 2016. The publication date of the MICROFLUIDICS AND MINIATURIZATION 2017 will be February 2017 (issue no. 3); however, all the accepted papers will be available on-line as soon as possible after acceptance. Additional information and directions for authors are available on the web at: www.wiley-vch.de/home/electrophoresis) Please submit your article on-line using the Electrophoresis website (http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/elpho). All manuscripts will be peer-reviewed according to the policy of the journal, and please also note the mandatory page charge for contributions exceeding 8 printed pages (except for reviews; see Author Guidelines online for details).

If you are interested being a contributor to this Special Issue, I would appreciate receiving a tentative title of your contribution. If you cannot send a paper at this time, I would also appreciate your referring this solicitation to a colleague who might be interested.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us by email.
