Aim and Scope of the Journal

Journal of Coatings Science and Technology (JCST), is an international journal specialized in materials and surface science, as well as applied physics. The journal aims to be a forum for the exchange of scientific and technological knowledge based on original research work among those linked to advanced coatings study, development and/or production, focused in different areas such as wear resistant coatings, corrosion protective coatings, optical protective coatings, films for biomedical and energy purposes, decorative coatings, and others, produced by advanced techniques such as PVD, CVD, thermal projection, and so on. This journal intends to promote the discussion about:

  • Updates on PVD, CVD and other advanced coating deposition/synthesis techniques;
  • Coatings evaluation;
  • Techniques used for coatings characterization;
  • Mechanical, tribological and physical evaluation of coatings;
  • Analysis on the interface between coatings and substrates;
  • Coatings surface science in general;
  • Successful applications.

 The journal aims to allow academia and industry researchers to present and share their original work. Papers reporting important findings, novel insights or useful techniques within the scope of the journal will be welcome, as well as case studies conveniently focused and industrial technical notes, providing substantial information about coatings characteristics and applications. Coatings Science and Technology can also receive selected papers presented at conferences related to coatings matter.

The journal will accept four different types of papers, as follows:

RESEARCH: Papers in this class will describe original and applied investigations about physics, materials or surface science and engineering, with particular emphasis in the coatings science and technology. Papers should present between 12 and 25 pages, including figures and tables, and must contain abstract, introduction, experimental, results and discussion, conclusions and references. Each paper must be supported by a minimum of 20 references, 50% of them published in the last five years.

REVIEW ARTICLES: Papers in this class will describe the state-of-the-art of coatings, production techniques, test procedures, deposition or characterization techniques, and so on. Papers should present a minimum of 20 pages and does not exceed 40 pages, including figures and tables. This kind of papers must be supported by a minimum of 60 references, 50% of them published in the last 6 years.

CASE-STUDIES: Papers in this class will describe new applications for coatings, clearly indicating the initial purposes, means used to achieve these purposes, testing procedures and results. Papers should present a minimum of 10 pages, including figures and tables, and must be supported by a minimum of 15 references, 50% of them published in the last 5 years.

TECHNICAL NOTES: Papers in this class will describe coatings characteristics, identifying the target market, advantages among the competitor coatings, applications and effective results. Papers containing marketing information are not welcome. This type of paper should not exceed 4 pages and must contain substantial proof data.
