Published by the Royal Society of Chemistry this relatively new journal was founded in 2005. The journal is dedicatd to soft matter science with a particular focus on the interface between physics, materials science, biology, chemical engineering and chemistry.
The main research area covered include:
Bulk soft matter assemblies; Soft nanotechnology and self-assembly; Biological aspects of soft matter; Surfaces, interfaces, and interactions;Building blocks/synthetic methodology and Theory, modelling, and simulation
This is an interdisciplinary journal published by the American Chemical Society. Langmuir is devoted to reporting new and original experimental and theoretical research in the fields of colloids, surfaces, and interfaces.This is interpreted very broadly by the editors and the journal covers all aspects of soft condensed matter.
Sections include, colloidal systems (micelles, vesicles, emulsions, gels, polymers, nanoparticles and surfactants), electrochemistry, imaging, forces and spectroscopy, films, biological colloids and interfaces, biopolymers, nanostructures, multicomponent systems, polymers, and materials (including liquid crystals).
ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is a new publication for the interdisciplinary community of chemists, engineers, physicists and biologists focusing on how newly-discovered materials and interfacial processes can be developed and used for specific applications. The journal publishes full length articles and letters from researchers in academia and industry in addition to featuring comments and forums dedicated to advancing applied materials research.
Topics covered by ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces include:
- advanced active and passive electronic/optical materials
- biomaterials and bio-interfaces
- polymer materials
- hybrid and composite materials
- friction and wear
The introduction of ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, with its focus on applications, enhances the portfolio of existing ACS publications focusing on fundamental materials science discovery, including Chemistry of Materials, Langmuir, Biomacromolecules, Macromolecules and The Journal of Physical Chemistry B and C.
As part of the comprehensive Physical Review journal published by the American Physical Society, Physical Review E is dedicated to "Statistical, Non-linear and Soft Matter Physics".
The journal includes sections covering: Granular materials; Colloidal dispersions, suspensions, and aggregates; Structured and complex fluids; Films, interfaces, and crystal growth; Liquid crystals; Polymers and Biological Physics
PRL E also contains a wonderful section named Kaleidoscope a new image from one of their articles is featured. Not entirely different from Soft Matter World's own Gallery page: however presenting a whole other perspective and collection of great Soft Matter images.
This European journal presents new and original research results in the understanding of the interdisciplinary science of soft matter as part of the large European Physical Journal. This includes reports of experimental investigations, computational physics, and theoretical studies, particularly statistical physics. Topics include: Biological Physics; Colloids and Granular Materials; Functional and Surface-dominated Materials; Liquid crystals; Polymers and Polyelectrolytes; Self-organisation and Supramolecular assemblies; and Liquids.
Journal Description from the Springer Flyer which can be downloaded and viewed here.
“Soft and Biological Matter” is a series of authoritative books covering established and emergent areas in the realm of soft matter science, including biological systems spanning all relevant length scales from the molecular to the mesoscale.
It aims to serve a broad interdisciplinary community of students and researchers in physics, chemistry, biophysics and materials science.
Pure research monographs in the series, as well as those of more pedagogical nature, will emphasize topics in fundamental physics, synthesis and design, characterization and new prospective applications of soft and biological matter systems. The series will encompass experimental, theoretical and computational approaches.

Published monthly by Taylor and Francis, this more specialised journal focuses on liquid crystal science and technology and will be of interest to chemists, physicists, biologists, materials scientists and device engineers working in the liquid crystal field.
Sub-topics covered include thermotropic, lyotropic, interfacial, chiral, ferroelectric, polymer, micro/nanocomposite, and biological liquid crystal systems.
The Journal of Colloid and Interface Science publishes research related to the fundamental principles of colloid and interface science. This has a fairly broad scope and the journal covers applications of these principles in a variety of scientific fields.
In the field of soft matter sections on macromolecules and polymer materials, Biomolecules and biomaterials, Fine particles, colloid materials, and colloid stability, Porous materials, membranes, and thin films, Surface tension, capillarity, and wetting, Surfactants, micelles, vesicles, emulsions, and foams are covered.
This is an interdisciplinary journal, covering all aspects of materials chemistry. The journal concentrates on more chemistry based articles, including the synthesis and properties of new materials.As of Issue 1, 2013, Journal of Materials Chemistry will continue in the form of three journals. RSC Publishing implements this change in the hope of allowing them to expand the Journal to be more flexible and dynamic to it's readers and high impact research. the three seperate journalsare now:
- Journal of Materials Chemistry A will focus on materials for energy and sustainability. The journal will publish research on all aspects of these areas, including materials for energy storage and conversion, for conservation of scarce natural resources and for sustainability and green processes.
- Journal of Materials Chemistry B will cover materials for biology and medicine. This includes materials for healthcare and materials at the biointerface.
- Journal of Materials Chemistry C will focus on materials for optical and electronic devices. High impact research into display technologies, optical materials, advanced electronics and materials for information storage will also be covered.
Macromolecules is a polymer science journal published by the American Chemical Society.
The journal concentrates on all fundamentals of polymer science, including synthesis, polymerization mechanisms and kinetics, chemical modification, and solution/melt/solid-state characteristics, as well as surface properties of organic, inorganic, and naturally occurring polymers.
