Spectroscopy magazine is seeking contributed manuscripts for its November 2013 supplement on inductively coupled plasma (ICP) and inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS).
is seeking contributed manuscripts for its November 2013 supplement on inductively coupled plasma (ICP) and inductively coupled plasma–mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). This supplement will include explanations of fundamentals of ICP and ICP-MS, along with discussions of recent advances in the technology and applications-oriented articles.
Examples of articles from past ICP supplements appear below:
Manuscripts should be approximately 2,000-2,500 words long, plus figures and tables as needed, including an abstract of approximately 150-200 words. Applications articles should follow a standard experimental article format. 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 should be called out using numbers in parentheses and listed at the end of the manuscript in numerical order.
Submissions from equipment manufacturers will be considered but must be devoid of promotional content; discussions of new technology should not focus on a specific manufacturer’s instrument.
Complete author guidelines are available at:
Due date for abstract submission:June 26, 2013
Due date for completed articles: August 14, 2013
Suggested article length: ~2000–2500 words, plus figures and tables as needed
