Aims and scope

Journal of Spectroscopy publishes papers that report the theory and application of spectroscopy across all disciplines, including biology, chemistry, engineering, medicine, materials science, physics, and space science.

All spectroscopic techniques lie within the scope of the journal.

As well as original research, the Journal of Spectroscopy also publishes focused review articles that examine the state of the art, identify emerging trends, and suggest future directions for developing fields.
