In response to the growing community of interdisciplinary research in materials science, the Publications Division of the American Chemical Society (ACS) has announced two new additions to the ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces family of peer-reviewed journals. Launching in late 2018, ACS Applied Electronic Materials and ACS Applied Polymer Materials will publish original research covering all aspects of electronic materials and polymers, respectively, emphasising applied work across the fields of chemistry, biology, engineering and physics.
Dr. Kirk Schanze, editor-in-chief of ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, will oversee the editorial teams for ACS Applied Electronic Materials and ACS Applied Polymer Materials. These launches bring the family of applied materials journals led by Schanze to six, reflecting the growth in high-quality applied research being undertaken globally in the associated interdisciplinary fields.
Dr. Hyun Jae Kim, professor of electrical and electronic engineering at Yonsei University in South Korea, will serve as the inaugural deputy editor for ACS Applied Electronic Materials. Kim serves on the editorial advisory board for ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces and is a leading expert in the areas of thin-film transistors, biosensors, and flexible and transparent electronics. Dr. Jodie Lutkenhaus, professor of materials science and engineering at Texas A&M University, will lead ACS Applied Polymer Materials. Lutkenhaus is an editorial advisory board member for three ACS journals: ACS Applied Nano Materials, Macromolecules and ACS Macro Letters. Her research interests include redox active polymers, polyelectrolytes and energy storage.
Both ACS Applied Electronic Materials and ACS Applied Polymer Materials will begin accepting submissions in October, and the first peer-reviewed articles are set to publish online by the end of 2018. Both journals will publish original research articles, research letters and timely reviews, among other editorial features. Authors will benefit from the broad range of exceptional author services from ACS Publications, as well as expert editorial review handled by active researchers, rapid publication, and flexible and affordable open access publishing options.
