Current Opinion in Colloid and Interface Science (COCIS) is an International Journal focused molecular and nanoscopic aspects of colloidal systems and interfaces encountered in materials science, biologically-relevant systems, energy and environmental technologies, and industrial applications. COCIS is not a primary journal; rather, it seeks to guide the researcher through the maze of recently published literature, critically analyses the state of the art, identifies bottlenecks, unsolved issues and proposes future developments. The Journal highlights areas and papers which, in the opinion of the Editors and the Section Editors, are of special interest and significance.

The scope of COCIS is divided in five Sections that include subtopics as listed below:

Colloid components and colloidal materials (surfactants, polymers and polyelectrolytes, emulsions and microemulsions, self-assembly)

Biological systems, medicine and health (biological colloids and interfaces, drug delivery, food colloids, cosmetics)

Films and charged systems (electrokinetics, thin liquid films and foams, wetting and spreading)

Colloidal systems for energy and environmental technologies (energy and energy storage, environmental technologies)

Advanced methodologies (microscopy methods, NMR, rheology, surface analysis techniques, surface forces, x-ray, light and neutron scattering, theory and simulation)



In addition, COCIS publishes "hot topic" special issues focused on emerging or timely topics. For each of the above areas, Section Editors are appointed, who commission expert scientists to write informed and critical articles on a selected topic. COCIS articles are not intended to be comprehensive compilations of the relevant literature, but are rather personal articles by the invited contributor(s), which aim to inform the reader of the major developments in the area, and to identify those papers which have made the greatest impact on the field, and open new perspectives. Normally, the period covered by the review concerns the previous five years.

This is a Current Opinion journal, a series of established invite-only review journals that offer authoritative, systematic synthesis of emerging and hot topics. You can find more information on Current Opinion titles here.
