Celebrating 50 years of publication

We are delighted to announce that the European Polymer Journal (EPJ) has just turned 50. To celebrate this momentous occasion we are pleased to offer you FREE ACCESS to the Anniversary Special Issue of European Polymer Journal, guest-edited by Julius Vancso.

Since its launch 50 years ago, EPJ has provided a distinguished forum for publications in polymer research, including chemistry, physics and technology, complemented since 2006 by a special Section on Macromolecular Nanotechnology. The first issue of the European Polymer Journal was published in February 1965 by Robert Maxwell’s Pergamon Press.  To learn more about the history of EPJ please read my Publisher’s note and the Editorial, Fifty years of polymer science, written by the journal Editors.
