Aims & Scope

Journal of Polymer Science and Engineering (JPSE) is an international open access journal that publishes original research articles and review articles related to all areas of polymer science and engineering. The journal provides a link between original articles, innovations published in patents, and up-to-date knowledge of technology. It publishes review articles on subjects not only within the traditional fields of polymer science chemistry, physics and engineering involving polymers, but also within interdisciplinary developing fields, such as functional and specialty polymers, biomaterials, polymers and drug delivery, polymers in electronic applications, composites, conducting polymers, liquid crystalline materials and the interphases between polymers and ceramics, and new fabrication techniques, where significant contributions are being made.
