DCM2018 Virtual Special Issue of Diamond and Related Materials

Diamond and Related Materials journal

All presenters at the 29th International Conference on Diamond and Carbon Materials are cordially invited to submit a manuscript for a Virtual Special Issue of Diamond and Related Materials that will appear in the framework of the meeting. We strongly encourage invited speakers, oral, and poster presenters alike to make use of this opportunity to push our field forward by providing readers and conference goers with an update of the current state-of-the-art in diamond and carbon materials science and technology. Any paper accepted for presentation at the conference will fit in the scope of the Virtual Special Issue. All manuscripts will be considered with the quality criteria of normal DRM submissions, undergoing a fast but strict double peer-review process.

  • Submission opens: August 2018
  • Final deadline for submission: 1 November 2018

All manuscripts for Diamond and Related Materials need to be submitted online via EVISE. For more information on how to submit, including the Guide for Authors, please visit:

Diamond and Related Materials journal

Diamond and Related Materials is a leading international journal that publishes new fundamental and applied research on all forms of diamond, the integration of diamond with other advanced materials and development of technologies exploiting diamond. The synthesis, characterization and processing of single crystal diamond, polycrystalline films, nanodiamond powders and heterostructures with other advanced materials are encouraged topics for technical and review articles. In addition to diamond, the journal publishes manuscripts on the synthesis, characterization and application of other related materials including diamond-like carbons, carbon nanotubes, graphene, and boron and carbon nitrides. Articles are sought on the chemical functionalization of diamond and related materials as well as their use in electrochemistry, energy storage and conversion, chemical and biological sensing, imaging, thermal management, photonic and quantum applications, electron emission and electronic devices.
