Going beyond the traditional boundaries of the chemical sciences
RSC Applied Polymers is one of the first journals from the Royal Society of Chemistry to focus on applied research. The RSC Science Horizons report identifies how the chemical sciences are key to unravelling global and industrial challenges, and particularly focuses on how interdisciplinary and applied research can contribute. With this in mind, RSC Applied Polymers offers you an impactful platform for the application of polymers, both natural and synthetic, including experimental and computational studies.
This journal is part of a new offering from the Royal Society of Chemistry. Scientists can continue to find innovative polymer research in our existing journal, Polymer Chemistry, and discover interdisciplinary, application-focused work in RSC Applied Polymers. Together, these two journals give you more options to explore and publish impactful research across the spectrum of polymer science.
Announcing our Editor-in-Chief: Emily Pentzer
RSC Applied Polymers will be the leading international journal for the latest advances made possible with polymers, from energy harvesting and management to payload delivery, and beyond.
The journal will promote the advancement of science by publishing timely and impactful cross-disciplinary research that connects fundamental insights to performance-related metrics.
RSC Applied Polymers is gold open access. This means that your meaningful publications can be shared widely and accessed easily around the world. We’re also paying for all article processing charges (APCs) until mid-2025 – so when you’re ready to make a start, you can publish your work for free.
