Since 2018, ACS Biomaterials Science & Engineering has partnered with Chemistry of Materials to produce an annual Virtual Issue on Methods and Protocols in Materials Science. Papers that can help others reproduce published results by providing details of methods and lab techniques employed to attain those results are highly valued since they can help propel research forward. Towards this goal, the 2018 and 2019 Virtual Issues focused on publishing methods and protocols papers that described new and/or improvised approaches to studying and solving important challenges in materials science.
Video is an important tool for describing and demonstrating how to accurately carry out lab methods and protocols. Many of the published papers in the 2018 and 2019 Virtual Issues included supplemental videos that displayed in detail the techniques used in these reported methods/protocols.
Watch these featured videos and read the papers highlighted below.
