Special Issue - Dielectrophoresis 2015

Dear Authors,
We would like to invite you to submit a paper for the special issue “Dielectrophoresis 2015”. After the great success of Dielectrophoresis 2011 (issues 17 and 18 from volume 32) and Dielectrophoresis 2013 (volume 34, issue 7) 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 second special issue will further the dissemination of the latest findings in this dynamic and fast evolving field.

“Dielectrophoresis 2015” 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 (μ-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 of the special issue “Dielectrophoresis 2015” is set at the end of the first half of 2015. Additional information and directions for authors are available on the web at: Author Guidelines. The deadline for submission of the manuscripts is October 15, 2014. Please submit your manuscripts electronically at: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/elpho indicating that it is intended for this special issue, or contact me directly.

Special Issue - Bioseparations 2015

Dear colleague,
It is my distinct pleasure to invite you and members of your research group to submit an article for the upcoming special issue in ELECTROPHORESIS titled as “Bioseparations 2015” for which I serve as Guest Editor. The article may be an original research paper describing complete investigations, or a brief communication reporting recent results that are timely and important. Review articles highlighting recent innovations in electrophoresis, liquid phase separations and related microseparation technique development (including their hyphenation to mass spectrometry), detailed experimental studies, theory, or applications in bioseparation-related research are also welcome. Please note that papers in this area are not limited to electrophoresis-based methods, but can include all liquid phase separation, MS-based analysis as well as lab-on-a-chip and microarray techniques. Our intention is to include articles in this issue relating to all aspects of bioseparation and their applications with papers describing theoretical, experimental and application work.

This special issue is planned to be multidisciplinary in origin and feature papers from many areas such as Genomics, Proteomics, Glycoproteomics, Glycomics, Metabolomics, Biomarker Discovery, CE-MS, LC-MS, etc., on all kinds of scales including preparative, analytical, micro, nano, etc. In short, the “Bioseparations” special issue represents a comprehensive platform for documenting the newest methodological developments and applications in various bioanalytical, biomedical and diagnostic areas of the wide and multidisciplinary field of Bioseparations. While we expect most contributions focusing on advances in various bioseparation techniques, we also hope to include a good number of papers that describe novel approaches in conjunction with mass spectrometry and even microarray technology. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to, improvements in electrophoretic and liquid phase methods (e.g., HPLC, nano- and micro-LC, nano- and microfluidics, etc.) to decipher biological matrices of interest, including novel strategies, platforms, materials, and applications, and/or computational analyses of the resulting data.

Contributions from your coworkers and collaborators are, of course, also welcome. The deadline for manuscript submission is October 15, 2014, with an intended publication date towards the end of Q2 2015. 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).

I do hope that you will be able to accept this invitation and join to the on-going success of this special issue on the emerging field of “Bioseparations”. Please let me know of your decision, and of the tentative title of your contribution, at your earliest convenience, preferably by August 15, 2014.

Thanks for considering this invitation.

Next-Generation Technologies for DNA Sequencing and Genotyping

Special Issue - Next Generation Sequencing

Dear Authors,

We would like to invite you to submit a paper to an upcoming special issue of the journal ELECTROPHORESIS focused on advances in the area of Next-Generation Technologies for DNA Sequencing and Genotyping.

Our inaugural special issue of the journal dedicated to this topic, published in December 2012, was extremely successful (http://onlinelibrary.wiley.co m/doi/10.1002/elps.v33.23/issuetoc). Notably, papers from this special issue experienced a download frequency three times higher than average for the journal. We would like to build on this success by expanding our coverage of new developments and innovative applications in this area, including those involving emerging “non-electrophoretic” sequencing methods. ELECTROPHORESIS is uniquely positioned to provide authors with the opportunity to appeal to a uniquely focused audience with relevant interest and expertise in these areas.

In this second special issue devoted to Next-Generation Technologies for DNA Sequencing and Genotyping, we welcome original research and review papers reflecting the evolution of sequencing technologies and their applications from electrophoresis-based systems, to sequencing by addition, to nanopore-based approaches. Contributions related to all aspects of theory, design, and practical application of these technologies are encouraged.

The tentative deadline for manuscript submission is September 15, 2014 for publication in the first half of 2015. All submissions will be peer-reviewed according to standard Journal procedures and charges will be applied as detailed in the Author Guidelines. Additional information and directions for authors are available on the web at: http://www.electrophoresis-journal.com. Manuscripts may be submitted electronically at: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/elpho indicating that they are intended for this special issue, or by contacting the editors directly.

We hope you will consider taking advantage of this special opportunity to take part in launching a new direction for ELECTROPHORESIS. Please contact us if you have further questions or would like any additional information.

Special Issue - Microfluidics and Miniaturization 2015

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to 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 2015 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 01, 2014. The publication date of the Microfluidics and Miniaturization 2015 will be the first half of February 2015; 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.
