Surfaces and Interfaces

Surfaces and Interfaces

Editors: Chantal Boulmer-Leborgne, Mircea Chipara, Werner Hofer, Klaus Zimmer


The aim of the journal is to provide a respectful outlet for 'sound science' papers in all research areas on surfaces and interfaces. We define sound science papers as papers that describe new and well-executed research, but that do not necessarily provide brand new insights or are merely a description of research results.

Surfaces and Interfaces publishes research papers in all fields of surface science which may not always find the right home on first submission to our Elsevier sister journals.*

The journal aims at being a fast and efficient platform for disseminating scientific results in this wide area of research. Fundamental, interdisciplinary, theoretical, experimental and applied work will be considered.

The main topics covered by the journal are:

  • Coatings and surface and interface engineering
  • Smart applications of surfaces and interfaces
  • Interfaces and thin films
  • Nanostructured materials
  • Surface engineering, modification and functionalization
  • Characterization and analysis
