CARBOHYDRATE RESEARCH (ELSEVIER) has agreed to publish a Virtual Special Issue (VSI) for EUROCARB2017. Participants to EUROCARB2017 are invited to submit their work to this dedicated VSI. Contributions may be in the form of Full papers, Notes, or Mini-reviews, and will follow the regular peer-review refereeing process of the journal. 

VSI essentially rules out possible delays in publication for contributors to the special issue and will make the conference special issue more complete and accessible than it has ever been. Please see below its advantageous characteristics:
  • All submitted manuscripts will go through normal peer view process per journal standard;
  • Papers are published individually in regular journal issues at Science Direct as soon as they are accepted, which ensures fast publication speed for individual papers;
  • There will be footnote included in the accepted papers indicating at which conference they were presented;
  • Published articles will also be simultaneously added to the online Virtual Special Issue hosted at Science Direct, which is gradually built up as individual articles are published;
  • Articles grouped together in the VSI will retain all their original citation details.
If you are willing to submit a paper, please send  an e-mail before or during the EUROCARB2017 meeting to:
