Molecular Crystals & Liquid Crystals Contribute your ILCC 2018 conference papers to Molecular Crystals and Liquid Crystals

Molecular Crystals & Liquid Crystals

Although there will be no formal proceedings published for the 27th International Liquid Crystal Conference (ILCC 2018), Molecular Crystals and Liquid Crystals will be pleased to consider any manuscripts that have been submitted to the conference. Such papers will be published with a footnote indicating their presentation at the conference.

Primarily fundamental in tenor, Molecular Crystals and Liquid Crystals was established in 1966 and publishes original research papers of both an experimental and theoretical nature in three areas of specialization: liquid crystals (electro- and magneto-optical phenomena, thermodynamics, phase transitions, structure, NMR and orientation controlled spectroscopy, and theory), molecular crystals (spectroscopy, energy, and charge transfer, solid state reactions, photo and radiation effects); low-dimensional solids (structure, electronic, magnetic, and optical properties, transport mechanisms).

In all three areas, experimental manuscripts describing both preparation and properties will be considered. Papers that describe determination of crystal structure alone are not encouraged unless some solid state forces (hydrogen bonding, charge transfer, etc.) are playing a significant role and/or some solid state properties of the materials are measured. Manuscripts are peer reviewed by anonymous experts in the fields.

Submission instructions

Manuscripts can be submitted by email to any of our regional editors in the liquid crystals field. Their names and addresses are listed below for your convenience. In this manner, those of you who wish your paper to be identified with the conference in an archival manner will achieve your objective. Peer review will be conducted in the usual manner. Every effort will be made for rapid handling. Kindly reference in your cover letter your desire for the paper to appear with a conference footnote.
