ELECTROPHORESIS is an international journal that publishes original manuscripts on all aspects of electrophoresis, and also more recently on all aspects of liquid phase separations (e.g., HPLC, micro- and nano-LC, UHPLC, micro- and nano-fluidics, liquid-phase micro-extractions, etc., see also Editorial of Issue no. 1, vol. 33, 2012).. Topics include new or improved analytical and preparative methods, development of theory, and innovative applications of electrophoretic and liquid phase separations methods in the study of nucleic acids, proteins, and other compounds. Papers describing the application of standard electrophoretic methods will not be considered. Microfluidics and proteomics, an integral part of the Journal since 2000 or earlier, were added as subtitles in 2008 to make them more visible to the readers and authors (Papers in the areas of microfluidics and proteomics, which are not limited to electrophoresis-based methods will also be accepted for publication).
As a natural expansion of the scope of the Journal, Nanoanalysis was added as another subtitle in 2011. Nanoanalysis is a broad term, and therefore papers that will be accepted for publications in nanoanalysis must be focused on one or more of the following: (i) nanoscale electrokinetics and phenomena related to electric double layer and/or confinement in nano-sized geometry, (ii) single cell and sub- cellular analysis, (iii) nano-sensors and ultra-sensitive detection aspects (e.g., involving quantum dots, "nano-electrodes" or nano-spray MS), (iv) nano-scale/nanopore DNA sequencing (next generation sequencing), (v) micro- and nano-scale sample preparation, (vi) nanoparticles and cells analyses by dielectrophoresis, (vii) separation-based analysis using nanoparticles, nanotubes and nanowires.
Contributions will be allocated to one of seven subject categories: (i) general, (ii) nucleic acids, (iii) capillary electrophoresis and capillary electrochromatography (CE and CEC), (iv) microfluidics and miniaturization, (v) proteomics and two-dimensional electrophoresis (2DE), (vi) nanoanalysis and (vii) liquid phase separations. On submission authors are requested to indicate the preferred subject category.
ELECTROPHORESIS will continue to serve as an indispensable vehicle for the dissemination of efficacious advances by covering all operative approaches from gels through capillaries to chips.
