About the Journal
Scope and Topics of the Journal
This journal aims to bring together participants from academia and industry in highlighting the advances in polymer research along with its application to global development. The journal seeks to promote and disseminate knowledge of the various topics and technologies of Polymer research in various sectors like industry, agriculture, health, water, shelter and environmental management. The journal will disseminate the research results among development policymakers, scholars and practitioners with a hope to identify new research directions. It can also have practical implications within interdisciplinary developing fields such as functional / specialty polymers, biomaterials, drug delivery, electronic applications, composites, conducting polymers, liquid crystalline materials; and bring contribution in new fabrication techniques.
The journal covers a wide range of topics; from nylon research to commercial aircraft. Progress in polymer research explores their properties along with their wide-ranging potential and presents science with a hard look at the downward drift in its study support. The articles are published in different fields of polymers such as medicine and biotechnology, information and communication, housing and construction, energy and transportation, national defense and environmental protection. The journal looks towards the advancements of the various classes of polymers like plastics, fibers, composites and other materials; as well as polymers used in membranes and coatings; analyzing how their composition and specific methods of processing result in their unparalleled usefulness.
This journal will not only be important reading for chemists, engineers, material scientists, researchers, industrialists and policymakers but also will be significant to science / engineering educators and students.
