Instrumentation for CE and Microchip CE
We are delighted to invite you to submit a manuscript to the special issue of ELECTROPHORESIS on “Instrumentation for CE and Microchip CE”.This will be the third special issue of this series that is running biennially. The first one was published in 2010, as volume 31 issue 15, pages 2467–2694, with 27 articles as reviews, research articles and short communications. The most recent was published in 2012, as volume 33 issue 17, pages 2613-2798 and had similar composition publishing 3 reviews, 19 research paper, and two short communications.
We have observed that even after 30 years of the establishment of the technique, instrumentation continues to be a very active field in both capillary electrophoresis (CE) and microchip-based capillary electrophoresis (μchip-CE or MCE). Both techniques thrive as multidimensional analytical platforms in the analytical, biomedical, pharmaceutical, environmental, and forensic sciences. Recent advances in the instrumentation associated with these techniques have fueled such growth. For that reason, and considering the success of the previous special issues of ELECTROPHORESIS, we would like to cordially invite you to participate in the 2014 Special Issue dedicated to Instrumentation for CE and Microchip CE by presenting your recent results within a research article or a short communication. Review articles are also welcome provided the topic of the review is discussed with the Editors before submission. Submissions related to simulations and CE-related software that could provide rational guidelines for experimental work are also encouraged.
This Special Issue is currently scheduled to be number (12) 2014. Therefore, the deadline for manuscript submission would be October 30, 2013. Each manuscript should be written according to the Instructions to Authors and should be submitted electronically via the website of ELECTROPHORESIS (http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/elpho). As usual, all the 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).
If you are interested in contributing to this Special Issue, we would appreciate very much receiving a tentative title of your contribution. If you cannot send us a contribution at this time, we would also appreciate your referral to a colleague who might be interested.
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Mass Spectrometric Detection in Liquid Phase Separations 2014
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 MSn spectra.
ELECTROPHORESIS has a long tradition in publishing Special Issues covering all areas of capillary electroseparation techniques and their combination with MS, leading to seven issues describing the newest developments in "Capillary Electrophoresis — Mass Spectrometry". In 2012 the coverage of this Special Issue was widened to include reports from all fields of liquid phase separations and their coupling with MS. Due to the great success of the 2012 issue, for 2014 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.
I have the 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 15 September 2013. 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 will appear early in spring 2014.
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 2013
We would like to invite you to submit a paper for a special issue of ELECTROPHORESIS 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 still evolving field.
With Microfluidics and Miniaturization 2013 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 well as their application to analytical and bioanalytical challenges (environment, genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, diagnostics, forensics, etc.) will also be considered.
The tentative publication date of the Microfluidics and Miniaturization 2013 issue is set towards the fall of 2013. Additional information and directions for authors are available on the web at: http://www.electrophoresis-journal.com. The deadline for submission of the manuscripts is set for April 19, 2013. 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.
