Journal of Applied Polymer Science

The Journal of Applied Polymer Science is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published by Wiley. As of July 2012, the editor-in-chief is Stefano Tonzani, PhD (University of Colorado, Boulder).

The journal covers all applications of synthetic and renewably sourced polymers, including batteries and fuel cells, organic electronics, biomedical implants and drug delivery, coatings and packaging. It also covers composites, blends, elastomers, films and membranes, fibers, emulsions and latices, degradation of polymers, block copolymers, hydrogels, foams, nanostructured polymers, as well as innovative synthesis and processing techniques.

The journal, the largest of its kind, bridges a crucial gap between basic research and patenting of an invention, targeting a broad audience of academic and industrial researchers, as well as the increasingly important world of scientists and engineers at start-up companies.

This journal is abstracted and indexed in the following databases: Advanced Polymers Abstracts (CSA/CIG), AGRICOLA Database (National Agricultural Library), Biotechnology & Bioengineering Abstracts (CSA/CIG), Cambridge Scientific Abstracts (CSA/CIG), CAS: Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS), CCR Database (Thomson Reuters), Ceramic Abstracts/World Ceramic Abstracts (CSA/CIG), Chemical Abstracts Service/SciFinder (ACS), Chemistry Citation Index (Thomson Reuters), Chemistry Server Reaction Center (Thomson Reuters), ChemWeb (, Chimica Database (Elsevier), COMPENDEX (Elsevier), Computer & Information Systems Abstracts (CSA/CIG), CSA Biological Sciences Database (CSA/CIG), CSA Civil Engineering Abstracts (CSA/CIG), CSA Computer Information & Technology Collection (CSA/CIG), CSA Mechanical & Transportation Engineering Abstracts (CSA/CIG), CSA Technology Research Database (CSA/CIG), Current Contents: Engineering, Computing & Technology (Thomson Reuters), Current Contents: Physical, Chemical & Earth Sciences (Thomson Reuters), Engineered Materials Abstracts (CSA/CIG), IBIDS: International Bibliographic Information on Dietary Supplements (NIH), INSPEC (IET), International Aerospace Abstracts & Database (CSA/CIG), Journal Citation Reports/Science Edition (Thomson Reuters), Materials Business File (CSA/CIG), Materials Science Citation Index (Thomson Reuters), METADEX (ProQuest), NISEE: Earthquake Engineering Abstracts (CSA/CIG), Polymer Blends, Alloys & Interpenetrating Polymer Networks Abstracts (Sage), Polymer Library (CSA/CIG), Reaction Citation Index (Thomson Reuters), RECAL Legacy Database (RECAL), Science Citation Index (Thomson Reuters), Science Citation Index Expanded™ (Thomson Reuters), SCOPUS (Elsevier), TEMA: Technik und Management (FIZ Karlsruhe), VINITI (All-Russian Institute of Science & Technological Information), Web of Science (Thomson Reuters), World Surface Coatings Abstracts (PRA), and World Textile Abstracts (Elsevier).
