Review articles on any subject within the realm of colloid and interface science will be deemed appropriate for this journal. The subject matter should be treated in depth as a critical review of the current state of the subject area, including an informed opinion of the author on the topic. The manuscript should compare and contrast the ideas in the reviewed literature; and deal with the limitation of the ideas discussed. As such the articles in this journal are normally authored by the recognized experts.

Articles only reporting on original research will not be accepted for publication.

Both traditional topics and those of emerging science and technology are welcome. In particular, topics in nanoscience and nanotechnology, and those relating to interfacial and colloid aspects of the biosciences are encouraged. Areas of both theoretical or fundamental interest as well as those concerning industrial applications, emerging instrumental techniques, etc. are appropriate.
