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:
- emerging techniques
- new applications of spectroscopic instrumentation
- current trends in hot research areas
- improved methods for common applications
- data-handling strategies
- solutions to sample-handling problems.
The full range of atomic spectroscopy, molecular spectroscopy, and mass spectrometry techniques is suitable for coverage in
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.

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.
A number of supplemental issues are planned for 2013, 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.
