is an interdisciplinary open-access Online Journal
publishing original research articles in the field of diffusion and transport, energized by a biannual Conference Series
. It addresses a broad community of scientists in all research disciplines and provides a Forum of Communication
Papers submitted for publication in the online journal are expected to deal with new aspects of diffusion theory, experiment and application. Since diffusion occurs in all types of matter there are, essentially, no limitations to the scope. Examples include:
Theory: models, computational studies, novel paradigms and tools of theoretical treatment
Experiments: experimental results dealing with fundamental research of diffusion and transport in any kind of matter (solids, fluids, gases, soft matter, interfaces, etc.)
Applications: applied research related to unrestricted spectrum of systems including complex materials, polymers, nanocomposites, self-assembled structures, bio-systems, engineered devices, sensors, etc.
Methods: potentials, versatility and limitations of experimental techniques for measuring diffusion and transport, recent developments and progress
Diffusion-Like Phenomena: studies in other areas such as ecologic, economic and social systems
The authors warrant the originality of their submissions. Acceptance occurs on the basis of reviewing by independent, anonymous referees. Please submit your papers for publication in the Online-Journal directly to the Editors or to any member of the Editorial Board as an e-mail attachment of the completely formatted pdf- or Microsoft Word documents. Only electronically submitted contributions can be considered. It is implied that basic requirements of easy reading and understanding (high-quality figures; figures and tables included into the text; numbered figures, tables and references, appearing in the sequence of numbering) are obeyed.
