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

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:

Electrocatalysis

Click chemistry

Heterogeneous and homogeneous catalysis

Biochemistry

Green synthesis of nanoparticles

Energy conversion

Biomass

Construction materials

Photocatalysis

Water splitting

Fuel cells

Inorganic chemistry
