Expressions of intent to submit a paper are invited for a special issue of the Journal of Rheology. Scheduled for publication in June 2022, this issue will focus on the properties of polymeric networks exhibiting double or multiple dynamics, such as dual networks or interpenetrated polymer networks, with particular emphasis on systems which combine supramolecular reversible junctions of different nature, or combine reversible junctions, entanglements and/or chemical crosslinks. Submissions are welcome from the entire spectrum (experiments, simulations and theory).

This special issue marks the final meeting of the European Initial Training Network DoDyNet. The peerreviewed articles from this special issue may be presented by invitation in a focused discussion workshop which will be held in Crete in Summer 2022 (for more details and registration, see Accepted articles will be circulated among authors participating in the special issue or the workshop, for comments and questions that will be published along with replies from the authors.
