  • The Journal of Sol-Gel Science and Technology - Celebrating a 30-Year Journey

    Many of us approach decadal birthdays - and particularly our 30th birthday - with a sense of reluctance and a tinge of sadness, thinking that some of the best years of our life are now behind us. In the case of a journal such as the Journal of Sol-Gel Science and Technology, the opposite is true! As we approach the 30th birthday of JSST in 2023, it is timely to look back at the origins and history of JSST, together with some of the current and future initiatives being developed by JSST’s Editors.
