Participants are cordially invited to submit manuscripts based on HPLC2016 presentations for possible publication in Journal of Chromatography A or Journal of Chromatography B, with the intention of publishing in a joint Virtual Special Issue (VSI) that is dedicated to HPLC2016 conference.


Virtual Special Issue essentially rules out possible delays in publication for contributors to the special issue and will make this conference special issue more complete and accessible than it has ever been. Please see below its advantageous characteristics:


  • Accepted papers are published as soon as they are accepted in earliest available regular journal volumes at Science Direct;
  • There will be Footnotes indicating at which conference papers were presented;
  • The virtual collection of finally accepted papers will be prepared and hosted on a dedicated Virtual Special Issue site – with links to the conference papers on Science Direct;
  • Preface and with the added possibility of post-conference information, e.g. photos, conference award(s) if any, are available via Virtual Special Issue. 


Authors are suggested reading carefully on the Scope of these two journals before deciding to submit a paper to which journal for publication.
