About this journal

Polymer Science is published since 1959 under the auspices of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The journal (Series A, B, C, D) presents original papers and reviews covering all fundamental aspects of macromolecular science. Articles may be written in English or Russian regardless of country and nationality of authors. Articles in Russian are published simultaneously in the Russian version and as a translation in the English version.

Series B includes experimental and theoretical papers and reviews dealing with the synthesis, kinetics, catalysis, and chemical transformations of macromolecules, supramolecular structures, and polymer matrix-based composites (6 issues a year).
