Polymers (ISSN 2073-4360) is a young but renowned open access journal. It was released in 2009 and already listed in WoS with a latest impact factor of 2.94 (5-yr impact factor 3.87). The journal has published its 1000th paper in October 2016 and we are aiming at the next 1000th by the end of 2018. Our authors benefit from the visibility of our open access publication and our fast turn-around time: 19 days from submission to first decision.

Polymers provides an interdisciplinary forum for publishing papers which advance the fields of (i) polymerization methods, (ii) theory, simulation, and modeling, (iii) understanding of new physical phenomena, (iv) advances in characterization techniques, and (v) harnessing of self-assembly and biological strategies for producing complex multifunctional structures. It publishes research papers, communications and review articles. Start reading at: www.mdpi.com/journal/polymers.
