Since its launch in 1946 by P.M. Doty, H. Mark and C.C. Price, the Journal of Polymer Science has provided a continuous forum for the dissemination of thoroughly peer-reviewed, fundamental, international research into the preparation and properties of macromolecules. The journal is selective in accepting contributions on the basis of merit and originality. It is not intended as a repository for unevaluated data. Preference is given to contributions that offer new or more comprehensive concepts, interpretations, experimental approaches, and results.

Part A: Polymer Chemistry is devoted to studies in fundamental organic polymer chemistry and physical organic chemistry. This includes all related topics (such as organic, bioorganic, bioinorganic and biological chemistry of monomers, polymers, oligomers and model compounds, inorganic and organometallic chemistry for catalysts, mechanistic studies, supramolecular chemistry aspects relevant to polymers and reactions on polymers).

Contributions may be submitted as full-length papers or as Rapid Communications. Reviews of recent books are also welcome. Articles are available online within 15 days from acceptance.

Online access to the full-text content of all Highlight articles is now freely available to all nonsubscribing users.
