Announcement: From January 2021 Polymer Testing will become an open access journal. Authors who publish in Polymer Testing will be able to make their work immediately, permanently, and freely accessible.

Polymer Testing continues with the same aims and scope, editorial team, submission system and rigorous peer review.

Polymer Testing authors will pay an article publishing charge (APC), have a choice of license options, and retain copyright to their published work. The APC will be requested after peer review and acceptance. The APC payment will be required for all accepted articles submitted after the 30th of September 2020. The APC for Polymer Testing will be USD2000 (excluding taxes).

Please note: Authors who have submitted their paper on or before the 30th of September 2020, will have their accepted article published in Polymer Testing at no charge. Authors submitting their paper after this date will be requested to pay the APC. For more details visit our FAQs page.

Polymer Testing focuses on the testing, analysis and characterization of polymer materials, including both synthetic and natural or biobased polymers. Novel testing methods and the testing of novel polymeric materials in bulk, solution and dispersion is covered. In addition, we welcome the submission of the testing of polymeric materials for a wide range of applications and industrial products as well as nanoscale characterization.

The scope includes but is not limited to the following main topics:

Novel testing methods and Chemical analysis
• mechanical, thermal, electrical, chemical, imaging, spectroscopy, scattering and rheology

Physical properties and behaviour of novel polymer systems
• nanoscale properties, morphology, transport properties

Degradation and recycling of polymeric materials when combined with novel testing or characterization methods
• degradation, biodegradation, ageing and fire retardancy

Modelling and Simulation work will be only considered when it is linked to new or previously published experimental results.
