Current Opinion in Colloid & Interface Science
Curr Opin Colloid Interface Sci
Published/Hosted by Elsevier.
Current Opinion in Colloid and Interface Science (COCIS) is an international Journal focussed on the major areas of colloid/interface/ polymer science. The journal also encompasses aspects of materials science, industrial applications of colloids, and biologically-relevant systems. COCIS is not a primary journal; rather it seeks to guide the researcher through the maze of current published literature, and to highlight areas and papers which, in the opinion of the reviewers, are of special interest and significance. Topics covered in the current year include principles of self assembly, polymers, scattering and reflection methods, surface interactions, food colloids (with emphasis on emulsions), gels and foams, rheology and rheological techniques, surface diagnostic techniques, nanomaterials, surfactant applications, biocolloids, biomaterials, and physico-chemical aspects of colloids. For each of the above areas, a Section Editor(s) is appointed by the Editors-in-Chief who will recommend the commissioning of expert scientists to write an informed and critical article on a topic within that general field. The article is not intended to be a comprehensive compilation of the recent relevant literature, but rather is a personal article by the contributor(s), which sets out to both inform the reader of the major developments in the area, and to identify those papers which in the opinion of the author(s), have made the greatest impact on the field. Normally, the period covered by the review will be the previous two to three years.
