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.

Forensic Analysis

Forensic Analysis

Dear Colleagues,
There are many new developments appearing in forensic analysis and criminalistics these days including new efforts in toxicological analysis (drug detection), forensic genetics (next generation sequencing, tissue typing and rapid PCR) and environmental forensics (detection of environmental toxins). Given the current state of the world, with the rise in terrorism, industrial scale clandestine drug synthesis and the expansion of efforts in human identification, it is clear that a sounding board for new developments in forensic research is needed.

Due to the previous success of a special edition devoted to forensic analysis, ELECTROPHORESIS would like to continue this trend and publish a new Special Issue on “Forensic Analysis”. The issue will cover all aspects of forensic analysis and related separation science. While electrophoretic methods will certainly be part of this issue, we are also interested in showcasing all liquid based separation techniques (HPLC, microfluidics) as well as real time PCR, proteomics, and DNA sequencing methods (sequencing by synthesis). Methods in toxicology, seized drugs, forensic genomics, serology, and trace evidence will all be considered. More recent developments in the validation of expert systems and experimental design software for statistical interpretation will also be accepted.

As Guest Editor, I cordially invite you to contribute to this Special Issue. As a potential contributor, you will have the chance to publish your research in a top-tier journal and to influence future developments in forensic science. One advantage of publishing in a special issue of this journal is the additional visibility your article will have as a part of this paper symposium of high quality research.

The special issue is scheduled to be in print in November 2016. Therefore, the submission deadline is the April 15, 2016 . 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 me by email.

Nano-Entities Based Separation Media

Special Issue - Nano-Entities Based Separation Media

Dear Researcher,
We are all aware of the intimate relationship between material science and the separation sciences. Advances in the latter have often been driven through new applications of the former, and this symbiotic relationship continues today. Amazing advances in the nano-realm excites us all, and the analytical science community is always quick to exploit any new nano-materials in ever more selective and sensitive applications.

I am therefore very excited to be able to invite you, as an expert in the field, to contribute your latest research, or indeed a focussed review, to a special issue of Electrophoresis being compiled under the theme of “Nano-entities based separation media”, related to the fields of CE, CEC, HPLC, and liquid-solid micro extraction. As you will be aware special themed issues attract increased readership of fellow experts in your field and therefore increased subsequent citations.

The special issue is scheduled to be in print in the second half of 2016. Therefore, the submission deadline is the end of January 2016. 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 am looking forward to hearing from you very soon with a tentative title if possible.

Sincerely,

Brett Paull

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 2016” 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 December 15, 2015, with an intended publication date towards the middle of Q3 2016.
