RSC Applied Interfaces is an interdisciplinary home for articles on applied interfacial and surface research. While RSC Applied Polymers offers a dedicated platform for work on the application of natural and synthetic polymers. These two new titles complement our current portfolio, which includes journals on materials and polymer research. We want to give you more options to discover and publish innovative articles across the spectrum of interfacial and polymer science. Both of these journals are gold open access, and we will be covering all article processing charges until mid-2025.
