About Encyclopedia


Encyclopedia (ISSN 2673-8392) is a peer reviewed open access journal that records qualified entries from the Encyclopedia platform (www.encyclopedia.pub), as well as original reviews in all disciplines of sciences, and research articles fit in with the scope of the section Encyclopedia Studies. Entries should be reliable, objective, and established knowledge rather than original research work or unproven hypotheses. Reviews should be critical and constructive and provide recommendations for future research. Our aim is to form a comprehensive record of scientific development and provide reference information not only for researchers, but a general public interested in accurate and advanced knowledge on specific topics.


This journal covers all disciplines of sciences. Research fields of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Biology and Life Sciences
  • Earth Sciences
  • Physical Sciences
  • Materials Science
  • Chemistry
  • Medicine and Pharmacology
  • Engineering
  • Mathematics and Computer Science
  • Social Sciences
