Applied Spectroscopy – Practica is a new peer-reviewed journal to address the needs of those who:

 
Work in ‘applied’ as opposed to ‘research’ areas
 
Are extending existing techniques to new systems, including process applications
 
Want to learn about data processing and workup methods
 
May be specialists in other analytical chemistry disciplines, but not spectroscopy
 
Are developing instruments and applications for ‘routine’ use by non-specialists – in the field, in the home, etc.
 
Are industrial spectroscopists, and those just starting out in the discipline
