AIMS AND SCOPE: Reporting High-Quality Research in Spectroscopy
Applied Spectroscopy is an international journal for the publication of original research and review articles covering all aspects of spectroscopy. The journal seeks to be comprehensive in scope, with its primary aim the publication of papers on both the fundamentals and applications of photon-based spectroscopy. These include, but are not limited to, ultraviolet-visible absorption, fluorescence and phosphorescence, mid-infrared, Raman, near-infrared, terahertz, and microwave, and atomic absorption, emission, laser-induced breakdown spectroscopies (and ICP-MS), as well as cutting-edge hyphenated and interdisciplinary techniques.
Fundamental topics include, but are not restricted to, the theory of optical spectra and their interpretation, instrumentation design, and operational principles. Reports of spectral processing methodologies such as 2D correlation spectroscopy (2D-COS), baseline correction, and chemometric methods applied to spectra are also strongly encouraged. Application papers are intended to feature novel, innovative applications of spectroscopic methods and techniques. Papers from all fields of scientific endeavor in which applied spectroscopy can be utilized will be considered for publication. Representative fields include chemistry, physics, biological and health sciences, environmental science, materials science, archeology and art conservation, and forensic science.
In addition to full papers, the journal publishes Rapid Communications, Spectroscopic Techniques, Notes, and Correspondence related to previously published papers. A regular feature of the journal, Focal Point Reviews, provides definitive, comprehensive free-to-view reviews of spectroscopic techniques and applications. The journal encourages the submission of proposals for consideration for Focal Point articles.

AIMS AND SCOPE: Reporting High-Quality Applied Work in Spectroscopy
Applied Spectroscopy - Practica is an international journal for the publication of original applied work covering all aspects of spectroscopy. The journal seeks to be comprehensive in scope, with its primary aim the publication of papers on applications of photon-based spectroscopy. These include, but are not limited to: extending existing techniques ot new systems, including process application; data processing and method workups; spectroscopic applications outside of the traditional analytical chemistry fields such as industrial spectroscopists; and work related to developing instruments and applications for 'routine' use by non-specialists.
In addition to full papers, the journal will have a section on hints and tips for using spectrometers and accessories, and a tutorial on a mature technique.
