Soft Matter provides a unique forum for the communication of fundamental science underpinning the behaviour of soft matter. There is a particular focus on the interface between physics, materials science, biology, chemical engineering and chemistry.

The scope of Soft Matter covers the following.

  • Bulk soft matter assemblies, including colloids, granular matter, liquid crystals, polymers and active matter
  • Soft nanotechnology and self-assembly
  • Biological aspects of soft matter
  • Surfaces, interfaces, and interactions
  • Theory, modelling, and simulation
