1.0 Scope and Standards
Faraday Discussions documents a long-established series of Faraday Discussion meetings which provide a unique international forum for the exchange of views and newly acquired results in developing areas of physical chemistry, biophysical chemistry and chemical physics. The papers presented are published in the Faraday Discussions volume together with a record of the discussion contributions made at the meeting. Faraday Discussions therefore provide an important record of current international knowledge and views in the field concerned.
2.0 Article types
2.1 Discussion Paper
A Discussion Paper must contain new and unpublished research work. Review-type articles are NOT accepted and the paper must not contain more review material than is necessary to set the context for the novel work. A Discussion Paper differs from a typical research paper only in that a degree of latitude is allowed concerning inclusion of remarks or questions which may stimulate interesting scientific discussion, and should be between 5,000 and 8,000 words of text plus tables and figures.
