Supporting publications


There will be no formal publication of proceedings from this conference.

However, authors are strongly encouraged to submit their work to our excellent collection of Elsevier Polymer Journals.

European Polymer Journal

European Polymer Journal

Editor-in-Chief: Julius Vancso

EPJ is ranked No. 13 in the JCR subject category Polymer Science, its 2016 Impact Factor is 3.531 and it publishes over 500 articles per year. EPJ is dedicated to publishing work on fundamental and applied polymer chemistry and macromolecular materials. The journal covers all aspects of polymer synthesis, including polymerization mechanisms and chemical functional transformations, with a focus on novel polymers and the relationships between molecular structure and polymer properties. In addition, we welcome submissions on bio-based or renewable polymers, stimuli-responsive systems and polymer bio-hybrids. EPJ also publishes research on the biomedical application of polymers, including drug delivery and regenerative medicine.
