Current Opinion in Colloid and Interface Science
(COCIS) is an international Journal focussed on the major areas of colloid
The journal also encompasses aspects of materials science
, industrial applications of colloids, and biologically-relevant
is not a primary journal; rather it seeks to guide the researcher through the maze of current published literature,
and to highlight areas and papers which, in the opinion of the reviewers, are of special interest and significance.
include: Applications, Theory, Microscopy Methods, NMR, X-ray and Neutron Scattering, Surface Analysis Techniques, Emulsions and Microemulsions,
Thin Films and Foams, Polyelectrolytes, Surfactants, Nanostructures, Food Colloids, Biological Colloids and Interfaces, Colloidal Dispersions,
Self Assembly, Drug Delivery, Electrokinetics, Rheology, and, Wetting and Spreading.
For each of the above areas, Section Editors
have been appointed, who will commission expert scientists to write an informed
and critical article on a topic within that general field. The article is not intended to be a comprehensive compilation of the recent
relevant literature, but rather is a personal article by the contributor(s), which sets out to both inform the reader of the major developments
in the area, and to identify those papers which in the opinion of the author(s), have made the greatest impact on the field. Normally,
the period covered by the review will be the previous two to three years.
