The Society of Polymer Science, Japan (SPSJ) and Nature Publishing Group (NPG) are pleased to announce a partnership to publish the society’s leading international journal Polymer Journal. From July 2009, articles will be freely available. Further developments will culminate in January 2010 when the full site is launched.
Polymer Journal publishes high-quality peer-reviewed articles spanning all areas of polymer research. The monthly journal was launched in 1970 and is keen to continue its record of facilitating important advances in the field, ensuring rapid publication of papers after they have undergone review. Polymer Journal welcomes submissions across a variety of article types including Original Articles, Notes, Short Communications and Reviews.
Essential polymer research is regularly published in NPG’s flagship journal Nature, as well as in a number of other Nature journals including Nature Chemistry, Nature Materials, Nature Physics and Nature Nanotechnology.
The Editor-in-Chief of Polymer Journal, Professor Toshikazu Takata of the Tokyo Institute of Technology leads a first-class, internationally diverse editorial board. The combined knowledge, experience and dedication of the board provides a first-class editorial service across the full spectrum of polymer science.
