Now in its 45th year of continuous publication, International Polymer Science and Technology is a monthly journal giving unique access to original research translated into English from five leading rubber and plastics technical journals currently published in Russian, German and Japanese.

This journal provides the only available access to these articles in English, and thus provides a significant and cost-effective opportunity to keep abreast of the technical developments occurring in these countries. Also, since the papers are translated by expert scientific linguists, the quality of the papers published is enhanced. Subscribers have the opportunity to select articles of particular interest, as each issue contains the contents lists from all available journals. Articles requested are then published in subsequent issues.
