Frontiers reaches 6.4 on Journal Impact Factors
The section is dedicated to welcoming innovation in all aspects of Chemical Engineering and selected aspects of Applied Chemistry and Science. The journal section is interested in new concepts, developments and unique applications of transport phenomena, thermodynamics, control, reaction engineering, separation, unit operations, modeling and dynamic simulation, economics and the analysis of systems with complex technical, social, environmental and economic implications. Applications include not only traditional Chemical Engineering processing but especially applications to emerging fields such as nanotechnology and materials, biotechnology, environment, health and biomedical, climate change, sustainable process and materials - to name a few. This specialty section brings two valuable innovations to the Engineering academic and industrial communities. The first is a strong link between Engineering and Science; the second is a dedicated publishing option for the chemical engineering field. Chemical engineering has vastly evolved in the last two decades; traditional concepts are increasingly being applied to non-traditional fields and a significant activity has emerged at the interface between Science and Engineering with many breakthroughs in applied chemistry, biochemistry, materials and even medicine. Engineers have also become more scientific in their approach, while retaining a strong application focus. Scientific Journals have not always appreciated this transformation.
In developing this section as part of Frontiers in Chemistry, we are reconciling this gap and celebrating the innovation and high impact applied science has on society. The section seeks to attract the best manuscripts and to insure a rigorous, fair and fast review process, in agreement with the Frontiers review guidelines. In line with the Frontiers mission to provide an Open Science platform, we will create a forum to discuss and debate publicly the evolution of the field. It is to the scientific community and for society at large to determine the importance and social relevance of each manuscript.
