Polymer Chemistry is dedicated to publishing the most exciting research encompassing all aspects of synthetic and biological macromolecules, and related emerging areas. As well as a dedicated readership, our Editorial Board members are also passionate consumers of journal content. We felt, therefore, that it might be useful for our Editorial Board to direct readers towards the papers published in the journal they find most exciting, based on their personal interests.
In our new “Editorial Board’s Top Picks” section of the journal blog, Editorial Board members will, in turn, highlight their favourite papers.
Accompanying the blog posts, is a web collection of the selected Polymer Chemistry articles.
Each month a different member of the Editorial Board will be picking their top articles, so be sure to keep checking the website for the latest additions!
Let us know which Polymer Chemistry articles are your favourite by joining the conversation on Twitter @PolymChem.
The first installment of Editor’s pick comes from Editorial Board member Heather Maynard:
Heather Maynard is a member of the Polymer Chemistry Editorial Board and a Professor in the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry, UCLA, USA. Heather’s research lies at the frontiers of chemistry, biomaterials, and nanotechnology and involves a combination of organic and polymer synthesis, materials characterization, and biomedical research.
Heather has selected these Polymer Chemistry articles from 2015:
