Celebrating one year of Carbon Trends

We have had a tremendous start with the launch of Carbon Trends in the fall of 2020. We have received a broad array of submissions covering a number of technical topics, ranging from materials engineering, theory of materials, energy systems, and even related to the role of carbon materials during the Covid-19 pandemic. We are particularly excited by the broad geographical origin of the submitted manuscripts. All these aspects bode well for our overarching goal of having Carbon Trends become a key reference for significant research developments in world-class science and engineering related to carbon.

Carbon, as a chemical element, remains a central building block in many cutting-edge technologies, including energy, catalysis, electronics, electromagnetic shielding, composite materials, etc.  I’m confident that Carbon Trends is ideally positioned to provide an excellent forum to address Carbon science and become an important player in the dissemination of scientific breakthroughs in related areas.

The journal has already published its fourth volume. This indicates a very strong start, especially judging from the fast-growing number of citations the first few papers published in January 2021 already enjoy.  I’m also very pleased with the quality of the submissions and also by the dedication of the reviewers who have quickly become the pillars for our fair and balanced editorial practice.

I am optimistic that Carbon Trends will continue to thrive as a publishing medium of choice for scientists and engineers to share their research with the carbon community.
