Journal of Polymer Research and Development

Aims and scope

Journal of Polymer Research and Development is an international refereed journal publishes quarterly online open access by KMF. The journal provides a forum for the prompt publication of articles concerning the fundamental and applied research of polymers. Its great feature lies in the diversity of content which it encompasses, drawing together results from all aspects of polymer science and technology. As polymer research is rapidly growing around the globe, the aim of this journal is to establish itself as a significant information tool not only for the international polymer researchers in academia but also for those working in industry. The scope of the journal covers a wide range of the highly interdisciplinary field of polymer science and technology, including: Research topics covered in the Journal of Polymer Science include all aspects of polymer science, core sub-disciplines, and representative topics including but not limited to:
 Polymer Synthesis and structure modifications
 Polymer structures, theoretical and experimental polymerization
 Mechanisms, kinetics, and thermodynamics of polymerization reactions
 Physical chemistry of polymers
 Crystallization thermodynamics and kinetics
 Polymer crystals
 Configuration and conformation of polymer chains
 Theory and simulation & modeling
 Polymer structural characterizations
 Polymer interfacial and colloidal phenomena
 Polymer dynamics
 Polymer materials (biopolymers, polyelectrolytes, nanostructured polymers, mesophases, liquid crystalline polymers, polymer blends, block copolymers, lamellae or spherulites, piezoelectric polymers, networks and gels, polymer thin films, polymer nanocomposites, shape memory polymers, plastics, fibers, plasticizers)
 Polymer Processing and Engineering
 Polymer rheology and mechanical properties (structure-property relations)
 Polymer viscoelasticity
 Polymer systems properties and applications
 Charge transport
 Polymers in separation processes
 Actuations
 Polymer devices (membranes, optoelectronics, optics and photonics, optical information storage, soft robotics, sensors)
