Journal overview

The scope of the journal is to publish original contributions and reviews on studies, methodologies, instrumentation, and applications involving the analysis and characterization of polymers and polymeric-based materials, including synthetic polymers, blends, composites, fibers, coatings, supramolecular structures, polysaccharides, and biopolymers. The Journal will accept papers and review articles on the following topics and research areas involving fundamental and applied studies of polymer analysis and characterization:

  • Characterization and analysis of new and existing polymers and polymeric-based materials.
  • Design and evaluation of analytical instrumentation and physical testing equipment.
  • Determination of molecular weight, size, conformation, branching, cross-linking, chemical structure, and sequence distribution.
  • Using separation, spectroscopic, and scattering techniques.
  • Surface characterization of polymeric materials.
  • Measurement of solution and bulk properties and behavior of polymers.
  • Studies involving structure-property-processing relationships, and polymer aging.
  • Analysis of oligomeric materials.
  • Analysis of polymer additives and decomposition products.


All submitted manuscripts are subject to initial appraisal by the Editor, and if found suitable for further consideration, will be peer-reviewed by independent and anonymous expert referees.

Authors can choose to publish gold open access in this journal.
