The journal's scope is intentionally broad, covering all aspects of the production of materials or the properties or applications of materials related to display technologies, optical materials, magnetics, electronics or information storage technology.
Submissions to the journal should contain chemistry in a materials context and can be theoretical and/or experimental studies. The novelty and advance should be focused on either the chemistry used to produce the materials, or on the properties or applications of the materials produced. Work submitted that is outside of these criteria will not usually be considered for publication.
The journal welcomes research spanning all material types, for example nano, 2D, smart, carbon, and multifunctional materials, with applications including those in the following areas:
Display technologies such as LEDs and OLEDs, and liquid crystals
Sensors such as chemical and optical sensing technologies
Printing such as inkjet, screen, 3D, electronics and security
Optics such as nonlinear optics, photonics, and electro- and photochromics
Electronics such as photovoltaics, transistors,semiconductors, thermoelectrics, and plasmonics
Magnetics such as spintronics, ferroelectrics and mulitferroics
Information storage technologies such as memory devices
