Discussion papers

Faraday Discussions papers are submitted by invitation or following selection of an abstract by the scientific committee of the relevant Faraday Discussion. They are presented at a Faraday Discussion meeting, each of which covers a topic within a rapidly developing areas of physical chemistry and its interfaces. Information about the topics of upcoming meetings and the associated deadline for submitting an oral abstract can be found on our Events pages.

Faraday Discussions papers must contain new and unpublished research work. Remarks or questions to encourage interesting scientific discussion at the Faraday Discussion meeting may be included.

A short introductory paragraph should provide the context for the new results; however review-type articles will not be accepted.

Faraday Discussions papers are distributed to all participants before the meeting, and most of the meeting is devoted to discussing the papers. Every delegate may contribute to the discussion – including presenting their own relevant new results.
