Aims & Scope


Soft contains rapid communications, full-length original research, review articles and comments on soft condensed matter systems, which includes colloids, surfactants, emulsions, liquid crystals, polymers, aerosols, granular materials, biomolecules, electrolytes and other materials that can be easily deformed by thermal fluctuations at room temperature. It covers the synthesis, processing, modifications and applications of these soft materials in Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Materials and Engineering. 

Generally, accepted papers will appear online within 3 weeks followed by printed hard copy. The topics include, but are not limited to:


Colloids
Elastic Fiber
Filaments
Hyperelastic Material
Interfacial Phenomena
Liquid Crystals
Liquid Polymers
Membranes
Microemulsion
Microfluidics
Nanofluidics
Non-Newtonian Media
Rubber and Elastomer
Soft Biological Tissues
Soft Elastic Material
Soft Elastic Tissues
Soft Matter


We are also interested in:

1) Short reports—2-5 page papers where an author can present an idea with theoretical background, but has not yet completed the research needed for a complete paper or an author presents preliminary data;

2) Short communications—2-5 page papers;

3) Technical notes—2-5 page papers;

4) Letters to the Editor;

5) Reviews (the number of pages is not restricted), Book reviews—Comments and critiques;

6) Advertisement.
