Important notice

Applied Adhesion Science will cease to be published as a standalone journal by Springer Nature as of 31 December 2021. No further submissions to Applied Adhesion Science are being considered. 

The journal's mission, scope, and editorial stewardship by Prof. Silvio de Barros and his Associate Editors will continue on in the form of a Topical Collection in the journal SN Applied Sciences.

For further information on submitting to the new topical collection in SN Applied Sciences please click here.

Springer Nature will continue to host an archive of all articles previously published in the journal.
All articles published in Applied Adhesion Science during its time as a standalone journal will remain fully searchable via the SpringerLink.

Applied Adhesion Science indexed in Scopus

We are pleased to announce that Applied Adhesion Science is now indexed in Scopus, the world's largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature. 

Aims and scope

Applied Adhesion Science focuses on practical applications of adhesives, with special emphasis in fields such as oil industry, aerospace and biomedicine. Topics related to the phenomena of adhesion and the application of adhesive materials are welcome, especially in biomedical areas such as adhesive dentistry. Both theoretical and experimental works are considered for publication.

Examples of welcome topics include, but are not limited to:

  • adhesives and sealants;
  • joint design and preparation;
  • surface treatments;
  • interface science and technology;
  • adhesion tests;
  • bioadhesives;
  • dental luting agents;
  • total-etch and self-etch adhesive systems;
  • surface chemistry;
  • adhesive patches;
  • composite repairs;
  • fibre-matrix adhesion;
  • environmental aspects in adhesive science;
  • durability (ageing, fatigue, creep);
  • wood adhesives;
  • coating and thin films;
  • nondestructive testing;
  • adhesives with nanoparticles;
  • cold and thermal spraying;
  • tribological aspects;
  • corrosion and oxidation protection;
  • surface characterization;
  • pressure-sensitive adhesives;
  • high-temperature adhesives;
  • fire resistance;
  • mortar adhesion;
  • adhesives from renewable resources;
  • health and safety;
  • textile and shoe industry;
  • paint adhesion;
  • debonding;
  • smart adhesives;
  • adhesion of dissimilar materials;
  • cohesive zone models;
  • bio-inspired adhesives;
  • surface energy and wetting;
  • functionally graded adhesive joints.
