    Aims and Scope


    SN Applied Sciences is a multi-disciplinary, peer-reviewed journal for the disciplines of Chemistry, Earth and Environmental Sciences, Engineering, Materials Science and Physics. It fosters sound scientific discovery to solve practical problems. The journal encourages quality, scientifically valid, original articles which present a good understanding of scientific knowledge, experiments and theories, methods and techniques, as well as interdisciplinary linkages. It welcomes research articles, review papers, case studies, and short communications. SN Applied Sciences offers Topical Collections designed to consolidate publications of a specific research topic. Articles can be either released as direct papers or within a Topical Collection.


    The Engineering section provides a forum for various sub-disciplines of Engineering Technology, e.g., Bioengineering, Applied Engineering, Robotics and Control, Signal Processing, Data Analysis, Experiments, Computational Mechanics, and Fluid Mechanics. We are looking for contributions covering theoretical and practical problems associated with


    Aerospace Engineering

    Big Data, Data Science and Data Analysis

    Chemical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering

    Communication Systems

    Complex Structures

    Computer Engineering

    Computing Systems

    Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Electromagnetics

    Energy, Power and Industrial Applications

    Fluid Mechanics

    Image Processing and Signal Processing

    Industrial Technology and Manufacturing

    Machine Learning

    Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning

    Multiscale Modelling and Multiscale Analysis


    Structural Integrity and Technologies in Construction

    Sustainable Inventive Systems


    The Interdisciplinary section provides a forum for multi-disciplinary projects that cover the expertise of experiments, numerical modelling, and theory to provide a better understanding of key processes. It welcomes manuscripts combining or link disciplines of applied sciences and explore theoretical or practical problems.


    The Chemistry and Materials section deals with the key research fields of chemistry and material science. Among many topics that our section covers, we promote the topics relating to the catalysis, activation of small molecules, electrochemistry and energy materials. The following keywords are only few of the key topics in our section:



    Click chemistry

    Heterogeneous and homogeneous catalysis


    Green synthesis of nanoparticles

    Energy conversion


    Construction materials


    Water splitting

    Fuel cells

    Inorganic chemistry

    Analytical chemistry

    Oxygen reduction reaction


    Food chemistry


    The Physics and Materials section of SN Applied Sciences targets the latest development in the Applied Physics area and its intersection with the Material Sciences. We encourage topics that generate an interest or are related to global challenges, including among others, alternative energy sources, climate change, food and water safety and innovative health. Some keywords that we are considering are:


    Electronic properties of materials

    Structure-Property relationship and characterization

    Superconductivity and Magnetism


    Organic electronics

    Perovskite/ Silicon solar cells

    Biomaterials and health applications

    Bioelectronics and sensors

    Applied photochemistry

    Photonic materials

    Mechanical properties of materials

    Thermoelectric materials


    Energy transfer, storage and conversion

    Organic materials doping


    Optical properties of materials

    Alloys and ceramics

    Applied Biophysics

    Sustainable development in Material Sciences


    The Earth and Environmental Science section of SN Applied Sciences aims to publish relevant articles and case studies within Earth and Environmental System Sciences. We welcome disciplinary papers from the fields of Physical Geography, Geology, Climate, Oceanography and Natural Hazards, as well as those with strong interdisciplinary connections from the fields of Geophysics, Environmental Chemistry, Geochemistry and Environmental Engineering. We welcome contributions which demonstrate linkages between natural and anthropogenic processes, human-environmental interactions and environmental processes and applications.
