Chemical Systems

A section of Processes (ISSN 2227-9717).

Section Information

The Chemical Systems section of the Processes journal is the ideal forum for publication of significant high-excellence and high-impact research, as well as reviews. What we mean by ‘Chemical Systems’ and what is expected in terms of content should be, to a certain extent, self-explanatory; nevertheless, it should be clarified that our definition is distinct from pure discipline and capacity-based chemical and chemical engineering papers in the following ways: Complexity might be the key asset. In this sense, papers submitted should embrace, for example, a systems view as given in chemical system engineering, a holistic view as given in process design development, or an interdisciplinary view as given when disciplines meet challenges by sustainability or green chemistry. The nature of the investigations is at best symbiotic and/or disruptive, which means they have the potential to transform science and industry. Both fundamental investigations and industrial showcases are of interest in this section. All manuscripts submitted for publication under this section will undergo the usual high-quality peer review process of the Processes journal and, if accepted, will be published rapidly online.
