Since its launch in 1946 by P. M. Doty, H. Mark, and C.C. Price, the Journal of Polymer Science has provided a continuous forum for the dissemination of thoroughly peer-reviewed, fundamental, international research into the preparation and properties of macromolecules.

From January 2020, the Journal of Polymer Science, Part A: Polymer Chemistry and Journal of Polymer Science, Part B: Polymer Physics will be published as one journal, the Journal of Polymer Science. The merged journal will reflect the nature of today's polymer science research, with physics and chemistry of polymer systems at the heart of the scope.

Research topics covered in the Journal of Polymer Science include all aspects of polymer science, core sub-disciplines, and representative topics including but not limited to:

  • Polymer Synthesis and structure modifications
    Polymer structures, theoretical and experimental polymerization
    Mechanisms, kinetics, and thermodynamics of polymerization reactions
  • Physical chemistry of polymers
    Crystallization thermodynamics and kinetics
    Polymer crystals
    Configuration and conformation of polymer chains
    Theory and simulation & modeling
    Polymer structural characterizations
    Polymer interfacial and colloidal phenomena
    Polymer dynamics
  • Polymer materials (biopolymers, polyelectrolytes, nanostructured polymers, mesophases, liquid crystalline polymers, polymer blends, block copolymers, lamellae or spherulites, piezoelectric polymers, networks and gels, polymer thin films, polymer nanocomposites, shape memory polymers, plastics, fibers, plasticizers)
  • Polymer Processing and Engineering
    Polymer rheology and mechanical properties (structure-property relations)
    Polymer viscoelasticity
  • Polymer systems properties and applications
    Charge transport
    Polymers in separation processes
    Polymer devices (membranes, optoelectronics, optics and photonics, optical information storage, soft robotics, sensors)
