10th Anniversary of Processes

Processes (ISSN 2227-9717) provides an advanced platform for process/system-related research in the chemistry, biology, material, energy, environment, food, pharmaceutical, manufacturing and allied engineering fields. The year 2023 marks the 10th anniversary of Processes. In the past ten years, Processes has published more than 8000 papers from more than 30,900 authors. More than 19,300 reviewers have submitted at least one review report. We value the contributions made by both our authors and reviewers. To celebrate this 10th anniversary, we are arranging a series of special content and events. We hope you can join us in celebrating this milestone for our journal and enjoy the collection below.

Celebration Activities

Processes 2023 Travel Award



We are pleased to announce that Processes will be granting the Travel Award to two junior scientists. This award provides financial support for the winners to attend an international conference in the fields of chemistry, biochemistry, biology, materials, or related process/systems engineering to be held in 2023 in order to hold a presentation, present a poster, or both.

We are pleased to announce the 2nd International Electronic Conference on Processes: Process Engineering—Current State and Future Trends (ECP 2023), which will be hosted online from 17 to 31 May 2023.



ECP 2023 will be free of charge for presenters and visitors. Submitted abstracts will be reviewed by the conference committee. As a sponsor, Processes would like to award the best presented paper, as selected by all the conference committees. The award will consist of a prize of CHF 500. We look forward to posting your contributions.

Processes 2023 Anniversary Best Paper Award



In 2023, we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of our journal Processes. In recognition of our authors’ continued support, Processes is pleased to launch the “Processes 2023 Best Paper Award for Anniversary Special Issues”, which will be granted to the best papers published in these Special Issues from 1 January 2023 to 31 November 2023.

Processes 2023 Young Investigator Award



We are pleased to announce that Processes is now inviting nominations for the Processes 2023 Young Investigator Award. This prize will be given to one young investigator in recognition of their excellence in the field of chemistry, biochemistry, biology, materials, or related process/systems engineering research.

Processes 2023 Outstanding Reviewer Award



On behalf of the Editor-in-Chief, Prof. Dr. Giancarlo Cravotto, we wish to acknowledge our reviewers, who so generously offer their time to review the papers submitted to Processes, by presenting an award to the reviewers who have demonstrated their dedication, professionalism, and timeliness in reviewing manuscripts for Processes.
