Progress in polymer chemistry and technology has not omitted elastomers and rubber goods, opening new possibilities and fields of application. To make familiar broader group of readers, both from academia and industry, with the achievements, the journal Materials addresses the Special Issue on "Advances in Research on Elastomers”.
Materials (ISSN 1996‐1944) is an Open Access journal of materials science. The journal is indexed by SCIE, EI, Scopus, and gets high visibility. Its 2014 Impact Factor is 2.651, and ranks 54/259 (Q1) in the category "Materials Science, Multidisciplinary".
Research papers or reviews, presenting latest achievements in the field of synthesis, technology, analysis, application, exploitation and recycling of rubbers and elastomers, or any related topics one feels to be important or interesting for science or industry are welcome. Contributions are to be subjected to the standard journal reviewing process. All accepted papers are planned to be gathered together on a homepage.
We would like to invite you to participate in this venture by submitting a paper. This could help in popularization of the knowledge on elastomers and to gain the reputation they deserve among other functional and engineering materials.
