The Journal of Sol-Gel Science and Technology (JSST) provides an international forum for the dissemination of scientific, technological, and general knowledge about materials processed by chemical nanotechnologies known as the "sol-gel" process. The materials of interest include gels, gel-derived glasses, ceramics in form of nano- and micro-powders, bulk, fibres, thin films and coatings as well as more recent materials such as hybrid organic-inorganic materials and composites.

JSST publishes original research and technological manuscripts in the form of extended reports. Occasionally, invited papers on scientific and technologically important issues in emerging fields of sol-gel materials are published as special issues. A Sol-Gel Product News section is also available for publication of short papers on products developed via chemical technology.

The Journal of Sol-Gel Science and Technology is the Official Journal of the International Sol-Gel Society (ISGS).

Commonly used title abbreviations: JSST

JSST welcomes submissions in the following areas:

Journal updates

  • An Update on Recent Initiatives

    JSST will explore the development and launch of the Topical Collections (TC) series, in which leading practitioners spread across the internal sol-gel community would be invited to contribute papers (either review articles or original work) to a series of thematic Special Issues addressing selected topics.

  • Micrograph of the Month

    Each month, we'll feature an interesting and visually striking micrograph taken from a recent publication
