AimsCoatings (ISSN 2079-6412) is an international, peer-reviewed and open access journal devoted to the science and engineering of coatings, thin and thick films, surfaces and interfaces. Coatings publishes original research papers and brief communications that report on the latest finding of research together with review papers that systematize the remarkable points on the state of the art. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible. There is no restriction on the length of the papers. Full experimental and/or methodical details must be provided.
The journal covers coatings, surfaces and interfaces in the broader sense. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Thin and thick films
- Processes for coating deposition and modification
- Characterization techniques
- Functional, protective and decorative coatings
- Dyes, pigments and their intermediates
- Wear, corrosion, erosion
- Coatings for high temperature
- Film materials for packaging
- Applied surface science
- Adsorption, adhesion, functionalization
- Fundamental and functional properties of surface and interfaces
- Theoretical and computational modeling of surfaces and interfaces
- High surface area systems: colloids, nanoparticles, large interfaces
