All Molecular Systems Design & Engineering articles must now include a separate paragraph (no more than 200 words) that:
- explains the molecular design or optimisation strategy and its general utility
- emphasizes the desired systems functionality and design constraints
- highlights the immediate or future application potential of the work.
This paragraph is intended to be accessible to the broad interdisciplinary readership of the journal, and therefore should be written in a general manner to complement more detailed discussions of these aspects within the main text. It should not reproduce the abstract.
When will I see a change?
This change has taken effect from now and is applicable for all submissions. The text will appear in a new ‘Design, System, Application’ box on the first page of all articles, excluding those currently published.
