Calls for Papers

Collections at Communications Materials provide a high-profile venue for topics of substantial interest to the community. Topics are selected based on their timeliness and value to other researchers. All Collections are edited by active researchers, with support from the in-house editors. Papers included in a Collection are published in the journal and promoted on our Collections page.

If you would like your paper to be considered for the Collection then please indicate this in the cover letter when submitting it. Authors who wish to propose or discuss a paper should contact commsmat@nature.com.
