Spectroscopy invites researchers to submit their work for publication.
Readers interested in sharing the results of their research with more than 27,000 other spectroscopists are encouraged to submit manuscripts for review and possible publication.
Spectroscopy publishes articles dealing with practical applications of modern spectroscopic techniques and instrumentation. Contributed manuscripts commonly address any of the following topics:
The full range of atomic, mass, and molecular spectroscopic techniques is suitable for coverage in Spectroscopy.
Manuscripts for regular issues should be approximately 3500–4500 words long, plus figures and tables as needed, including an abstract of approximately 150–200 words. Figures and tables, along with their captions, should appear at the end of the manuscript, and figures also must be sent as separate files, preferably in JPG, TIF, PNG, or XLS format.
References. Number the literature citations in the text consecutively in order of appearance and indicate them by Arabic numerals in parentheses. Number each reference separately. Group the references at the end of the manuscript in the order of their appearance in the text, not alphabetically.
Use Chemical Abstracts Service Source Index for journal abbreviations. Use the following format for references:
(1) R. Salzer and H.W. Siesler, Infrared and Raman Spectroscopic Imaging Wiley-VCH, Weinheim, 2009), pp. 90–103.
(2) P. Matousek, Appl. Spectrosc. 60, 1341 (2006).
Publishing your work in Spectroscopy has many advantages.
Audience: The size of Spectroscopy's audience, with more than 27,000 readers, makes Spectroscopy the ideal vehicle for communicating information of broad significance to the spectroscopy community.
Peer Review: Contributed technical papers published in Spectroscopy have passed a thorough peer-review process. Our pool of referees includes the members of our distinguished Editorial Advisory Board and other recognized leaders in the field.
Rapid publication: Spectroscopy can generally achieve rapid publication of accepted articles. Our target is less than six months between submission and publication.
A number of supplemental issues are planned for 2012, for which we also invite contributions. Manuscripts for the Raman, FT-IR, and ICP/ICP-MS supplements should be 2500–3000 words long, plus up to eight figures and tables, and should include an abstract of approximately 150–200 words.
