The journal Surfaces and Interfaces publishes new, original, up to date, and scientifically interesting topics in all research areas on surfaces and interfaces.

The journal aims at being a fast and efficient platform for disseminating scientific results in this wide area of research. Fundamental, interdisciplinary, theoretical, experimental and applied work will be considered.

The main topics covered by the journal are:

  • Physical, chemical, and biological phenomena at surface and/or interface
  • Ultrathin and/or submicron confined surfaces and interfaces
  • Analysis and characterization of phenomena and processes occurring at surfaces and interfaces
  • Nanostructured surfaces and interfaces
  • Surface modification of materials for advanced or engineered applications
  • Novel experimental techniques for production and analysis of surfaces and interfaces with emphasis on submicron phenomena
  • Advanced theoretical contributions in the field of surfaces and interfaces.

Note to the authors: Plagiarism, or copying text or results from other sources, is unethical behavior and is not tolerated at Surfaces and Interfaces. All manuscripts submitted to Surfaces and Interfaces will be checked for originality using the CrossCheck database. For more information on CrossCheck please visit
