We would like to inform our authors and readers that as a result of the recent change in the journal scope, the Editorial Board has decided that the journal will not accept Technical Innovations for submission from the 1st December 2016 onwards. All Technical Innovations currently under review for the journal will not be affected.
Technical Innovations currently published in the journal cover new and innovative technologies of immediate value to the Lab-on-a-Chip, micro/nanofluidics or miniaturisation communities or offer novel technical insights to new and/or existing problems.
The revised scope highlights that the journal aims to publish work at the interface between physical technological advancements and high impact applications that are of direct interest to a broad audience. The most important criterion used to assess manuscripts that are submitted to Lab on a Chip is novelty. Papers should demonstrate novelty in both: (i) the device physics, engineering, and materials; and (ii) applications in biology, chemistry, medicine. Submissions that describe novelty in both device and application are most likely to be published.
Outstanding articles featuring novelty in either the device or the application may also be published and therefore articles with outstanding innovation in the device technology may still be submitted to the journal, either as Full Papers or Communications.
