Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Synchrotron Radiation in Polymer Science (SRPS) and Grazing incidence small angle scattering (GISAS) conferences have become major events in the polymer science community, as well as in the advanced materials science community, since being held in 1995 and 2009, respectively.

The 2018 SRPS conference (http://www.2018SRPS-GISAS.org/srps2018/) is covering recent advances in the application of synchrotron radiation in all polymer science and advanced material areas: X-ray scattering, diffraction and reflectivity; resonant soft X-ray scattering; micro and nanofocus scattering and diffraction; infrared spectroscopy, absorption fine structure spectroscopy, and microscopy; neutron scattering and reflectivity; XFEL sciences (fast dynamics, coherent scattering and imaging, crystallography, etc.); modeling, simulation, data analysis and new methods; etc.

On the other hand, the 2018 GISAS conference (http://www.2018SRPS-GISAS.org/gisas2018/) covers recent advances in GISAS theories and methods, as well as key issues of structures and their correlations to materials properties and device performances in advanced materials science and technology, nano-science and technology, energy science and technology, bio-science and technology, micro-, nano- and molecular electronics, metallic and magnetic materials, and instrumentations/data analysis/new methods.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Polymers is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1500 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
