A Special Issue is a collection of articles that concentrates on a topical research area within the scope of a journal. These Issues provide a venue for research on emerging areas, highlight important subdisciplines, or describe new cross-disciplinary applications.
Last year, we successfully launched over 70 Special Issues across our portfolio of Physical Science journals.
Keep up to date with some of the hot topics this year with a selection of the most impactful Special Issues from 2021.
Characterization of the Corroding Interface using Scanning Techniques 2021 in Scanning
The aim of this Special Issue is to consolidate recent findings related to interfacial corrosion processes using scanning techniques (e.g., SEM/EDS, EDSB, KPFM, STEM, SVET), and to provide a platform for researchers to publish the latest findings, reviews, research methodology to solve the fundamental scientific corrosion issues.
Persistent Toxic Substances in the Environment and Humans 2021 in Journal of Chemistry
A Special Issue focused on persistent toxic substances in the environment and humans.
Artificial Intelligence in Food Quality Improvement in Journal of Food Quality
The aim of this Special Issue is to demonstrate new developments and application of artificial intelligence in food quality improvement.
Synthesis, Characteristics, and Applications of Novel Nanomaterials in Adsorption and Catalysis in Adsorption Science & Technology
This Special Issue focusses on articles devoted to the synthesis and characterization of metal and metal oxide materials with different surface modifications or coating techniques to form novel adsorbents for the removal of EPs.
Challenges and Opportunities in the Application of Chemometrics in the Pharmaceutical and Food Science Industries in Journal of Chemistry
This Special Issue collates original research papers and reviews related to the development of new multivariate and multidirectional methods, as well as methodological aspects, of chemometrics research, aimed at optimizing chemical systems, selection of process variables and fusion of experimental data.
If you are looking to publish your work and contribute to networking and discussions about topics of high interest within your research area, evidence suggests that articles published in Special Issues get more visibility and dissemination.
