Virtual Issue of The Journal of Applied Polymer Science

Journal of Applied Polymer Science coverThe Journal of Applied Polymer Science is undergoing a profound revamping. Aside from changing its look and feel, we are also expanding its scope to better align it with the multifaceted applications that cutting-edge polymer research is involved in developing, from bioplastics to organic electronics and nanocomposites.

At the Journal of Applied Polymer Science, in line with the practical nature of the research we publish, we think an example speaks louder than words, so we have put together a virtual issue with some of the great content the Journal has published recently, as well as a selection of articles from our sister journals to show the types of papers, topics and authors you can expect to find in an issue of the Journal of Applied Polymer Science in the near future. All the papers are free to access, and we hope you enjoy reading them.
