Aim and Scope
With the explosion of research activity and reports, the need for concise and critical reviews of topics of contemporary research interest is manifest. Reviews of Adhesion and Adhesives (RAA) provides in-depth, incisive, illuminating and thought-provoking reviews written by subject matter experts covering all aspects of adhesion science and adhesive technology. Each review will be imbued with the author’s experience so that the reader will be able to assimilate the research in the area discussed easily and will be able to apply it in practice.
The topics to be covered include, but not limited to,
basic and theoretical aspects of adhesion;
modeling of adhesion phenomena;
mecha¬nisms of adhesion; surface and interfacial analysis and characterization;
nraveling of events at interfaces;
characterization of interphases;
adhesion of thin films and coatings;
adhesion aspects in reinforced composites; formation, characterization and durability of adhesive joints;
surface preparation methods;
polymer surface modification;
adhesion of metallized plastics;
adhesion of diamond-like films;
contact angle, wettability· and adhesion;
Authors retain copyright without restrictions.
Plagiarism statement: Plagiarism is a direct violation of intellectual and academic honesty. Although it exists in many forms, all plagiarism refers to the same act: “representing somebody else’s words or ideas as one’s own”. This can take the form of taking material from other sources, including the Internet, and deliberately failing to give credit in a paper to the original source. It can also involve improper use of citation and documentation in a way that constitutes plagiarism, even though unintended. Plagiarism is a very serious violation of academic rules. Our journal reject all the manuscripts with suspect of plagiarism and disclose authors for any further publication possibility in the Reviews of Adhesion and Adhesives. In order to detect plagiarism we use the Grammarly software (www.grammarly.com).
