Special Issue Publication - ELSEVIER


All authors of both oral and poster presentations are kindly invited to submit manuscripts based on your presentation(s) at the 47th International Symposium on High Performance Liquid Phase Separations and Related Techniques (HPLC2018 Washington) for possible publication in Journal of Chromatography A or Journal of Chromatography B, with the intention of publishing in a joint Special Issue that is dedicated to this symposium.


The Special Issue essentially rules out possible delays in publication for contributors to the special issue. Please see below the publication process:


  • All papers will go through normal peer review process per journal standard;
  • Papers will be published as soon as they are accepted in earliest available regular journal volumes at ScienceDirect, which ensures very fast publication speed for individual authors;
  • There will be Footnotes included in each accepted paper, indicating at which conference it was presented;
  • The collection of finally accepted papers will be prepared and hosted on a dedicated Special Issue site – with links to the papers on Science Direct, retaining all original citation details.

Authors are suggested reading carefully on the Scope of these two journals before selecting which journal for publication.
