• Publishes original research articles, letters, case reports, reviews/mini-reviews and guest edited thematic issues on various topics related to Applied Materials. Articles may be focused largely, but not exclusively, on contributions from China

Aims and Scope

The Applied Materials section of the journal Current Chinese Science publishes original research articles, letters, reviews/mini-reviews and guest-edited thematic issues in all areas of applied materials. Articles may focus largely, but not exclusively, on contributions from China.


This section is not limited to a specific aspect of the field but is instead devoted to a wide range of sub-fields in the area. Articles of interdisciplinary nature are particularly welcome. Submissions in the following applied material areas are of special interest to the readers of this journal:


  • • Applications of polymer, composite, and coating materials
  • • Biological and medical applications of materials and interfaces
  • • Energy, environmental, and catalysis applications
  • • Functional inorganic materials and devices
  • • Functional nanostructured materials
  • • Organic electronic materials, and devices
  • • Surfaces, interfaces, and applications
  • • Others
