A section of Separations (ISSN 2297-8739).

Section Information

Separations has launched specialized sections to promote the publication of high-quality articles on basic and applied topics of chromatography and other separation techniques. The Section "Forensics/Toxins" offers scholars a specific forum for the rapid publication of manuscripts on forensic and toxicological analysis, with a special emphasis on new challenges and trends. Currently, techniques such as gas chromatography, liquid chromatography, and capillary electrophoresis are essential to characterize, classify, and quantitate a wide range of analytes in forensic casework and toxicology. Chromatographic methods are also often employed for sample preparation and screening purposes. This section will welcome all original research and reviews that emphasize the importance of chromatographic method development, quality assurance, quality control, validation, and standardization as they relate to forensic and toxicological analyses.

This section is also interested in specific hot topics in the field of forensic and toxicological analysis, including, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • Emerging separation techniques that improve conventional analyses;
  • Characterization of novel and emerging analytes;
  • Data processing workflows that improve throughput;
  • Chemometric strategies of chromatographic data;
  • Statistical methods for interpretation of or decision-making using data.

We are also particularly interested in studies that provide data or commentaries on the incorporation of separation techniques in courtroom testimonies.

All manuscripts to be considered for publication in this section will undergo a rigorous peer-review process, and decisions made will be made based on recommendations from independent reviewers. With these efforts, we aim to increase the impact of contributions from forensic and toxicological separation research to the field of analytical chemistry.
