From the journal e-Polymers

e-Polymers is a well established journal in the field of polymer research and publishes bi-monthly high-quality articles dedicated to pure and applied polymer science.

The journal was launched in 2001 as the first electronic-only polymer journal with open-access. Last summer, e-Polymers was transferred from the e-Polymer Foundation to De Gruyter. Prof. Seema Agarwal and Prof. Andreas Greiner (both University Bayreuth) took over as Editors-in-Chief directing the editorial process supported by Dr. Karin Lason as Managing Editor at De Gruyter.

State-of-the-art hosting for online content is provided on the De Gruyter Online platform. The online manuscript submission and tracking system (Thomson Reuters ScholarOne) and ahead of print online publication ensures timely speed with which articles are processed and published. Active reference linking in the PDF articles of the online edition, forward linking, color figures free of charge for authors in both print and online are merely a few of the services offered.

De Gruyter is an independent academic publishing house with a tradition spanning over 260 years. With offices in Berlin, Boston and Beijing we publish annually over 800 new titles in the physical sciences, medicine, law, and the humanities, and well over 300 journals and digital media. Journal of Polymer Engineering, Green Processing and Synthesis, Nanotechnology Reviews, Science and Engineering of Composite Materials, High Temperature Materials and Processes, Journal of Non-Equilibrium Thermodynamics, Holzforschung/Wood, and Corrosion Reviews are merely a few other journals in our chemistry, chemical engineering and materials sciences publishing portfolio.

We at De Gruyter feel engaged to continuously increase the scientific impact of e-Polymers in the coming years and make this journal a top address for scientific and applied publishing in its field. We very much appreciate the opportunity for dialogue with our authors and readers – please let us know your ideas and suggestions.
