  • 5 Year impact factor: 28.7
  • Impact factor: 30
A Review Section of Physics Letters The journal Physics Reports publishes timely reviews which are more extensive than just literature surveys but normally less than a full monograph. Each report deals with one specific subject and is generally published in a separate volume. These reviews are specialist in nature but contain enough introductory material to make the main points intelligible to a non-specialist. The reader will not only be able to distinguish important developments and trends in physics but will also find a sufficient number of references to the original literature. The topics covered by the journal include but are not limited to: Astrophysics and Cosmology, Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics, Biological Physics, Condensed Matter Physics, High Energy Physics, Nanoscience, Non-Linear Dynamics and Complex Systems, Nuclear Physics and Hadronic Physics, Plasma Physics, Statistical Physics. Submission of articles to Physics Reports is by invitation only; unsolicited submissions cannot be accepted. Should you feel that you have a topic suitable for publication in one of the sections in this journal, please contact our Editorial Office, [email protected], with a proposal of no more than 1000 words. You must specify which Editor should review your proposal (see Editorial Board).

Radiation Measurements

  • ISSN: 1350-4487
  • 5 Year impact factor: 1.9
  • Impact factor: 2
Radiation Measurements provides a forum for the presentation of the latest developments in the broad field of ionizing radiation detection and measurement. The journal publishes original papers on both fundamental and applied research. The journal seeks to publish papers that present advances in the following areas: spontaneous and stimulated luminescence (including scintillating materials, thermoluminescence, and optically stimulated luminescence); electron spin resonance of natural and synthetic materials; the physics, design and performance of radiation measurements (including computational modelling such as electronic transport simulations); the novel basic aspects of radiation measurement in medical physics. Studies of energy-transfer phenomena, track physics and microdosimetry are also of interest to the journal. Applications relevant to the journal, particularly where they present novel detection techniques, novel analytical approaches or novel materials, include: personal dosimetry (including dosimetric quantities, active/electronic and passive monitoring techniques for photon, neutron and charged-particle exposures); environmental dosimetry (including methodological advances and predictive models related to radon); cosmic and high-energy radiation measurements (including dosimetry, space radiation effects, and single event upsets); dosimetry-based archaeological and Quaternary dating; dosimetry-based approaches to thermochronometry; accident and retrospective dosimetry (including activation detectors), and dosimetry and measurements related to medical applications. Generally excluded are topics related to dosimetry and environmental radioactivity for risk assessment, particularly using standard and well-established techniques, where the emphasis is on the results of the measurements rather than on the measurement techniques. Review articles are periodically solicited by the Editors. The journal aims to publish papers containing substantial novelty and scientific impact. The Editors reserve the rights to reject, with or without external review, papers that do not meet these criteria. Please note that rejected papers will not be considered when resubmitted in any form, or to an alternative Editor.

Infrared Physics & Technology

  • ISSN: 1350-4495
  • 5 Year impact factor: 3.2
  • Impact factor: 3.3
The Journal covers the entire field of infrared physics and technology: theory, experiment, application, devices and instrumentation. Infrared' is defined as covering the near, mid and far infrared (terahertz) regions from 0.75um (750nm) to 1mm (300GHz.) Submissions in the 300GHz to 100GHz region may be accepted at the editors discretion if their content is relevant to shorter wavelengths. The very near infrared, VNIR, defined as 750nm-1200nm is subject to special consideration. Where a submission utilises the VNIR alone, or in conjunction with longer wavelengths and uses typically `infrared? technology such as InGaAs detectors, it is in scope. Where a submission utilises the VNIR and shorter wavelengths in the visible, and uses typically visible region technology such as silicon detectors, it is unlikely to be appropriate to this Journal. Submissions must be primarily concerned with and directly relevant to this spectral region. Its core topics can be summarized as the generation, propagation and detection, of infrared radiation; the associated optics, materials and devices; and its use in all fields of science, industry, engineering and medicine. Infrared techniques occur in many different fields, notably spectroscopy and interferometry; material characterization and processing; atmospheric physics, astronomy and space research. Scientific aspects include lasers, quantum optics, quantum electronics, image processing and semiconductor physics. Some important applications are medical diagnostics and treatment, industrial inspection and environmental monitoring. A fuller though not exhaustive list of topics would include: • Astronomy, Astrophysics and Space Research • Atmospheric transmission, turbulence and scattering • Biomedical and Medical applications • Cultural heritage • Environmental applications: pollution and monitoring • Detectors: quantum and thermal • Image processing • Industrial applications • Infrared lasers including free electron lasers • Material properties, processing and characterization • Nondestructive testing, active and passive. • Optical elements: lenses, polarizers, filters, mirrors, fibres, etc. • Radiometry: techniques, calibration, standards and instrumentation • Remote sensing and range-finding • Solid-state physics • Thermal imaging: device design, testing and applications • Synchroton radiation in the infrared During submission, please suggest at least one and a maximum of five potential reviewers. You are strongly encouraged to submit recommendations for appropriately senior and knowledgeable referees having no connection to your work and not located at your institution, as this may speed up the processing of your manuscript. The editorial office may not use your suggestions, but they are greatly appreciated. Where the author works in a country with a small community of research workers in his or her field, it is highly desirable that at least two of the suggested referees are from another country. To be suitable for submission to this Journal, manuscripts should advance the field of Infrared Physics and Technology. Their target audience should be those working in the field of Infrared Physics and Technology. Papers using infrared methods, such as FTIR spectroscopy or thermography, in an essentially routine way to advance some other field, and of interest to other readerships, and generally not suited to this Journal. The Journal does include within its scope genuinely new applications of established infrared methods. In the field of medical applications such as the detection of breast cancer or diabetic pathology, submissions to IRPT should normally include advances in hardware or data collection protocols etc. Such studies are required to have adequate sized and well characterized cohorts. Clinical studies using standard equipment are generally not within the scope of the Journal. Similarly in the fields of hyperspectral imaging and near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy application of standard hardware and signal processing methods to a different agricultural product etc does not normally fall within our scope, whereas novel hardware or signal processing does. The Journal only publishes papers which are purely based on computer modelling without support from experimental results in exceptional circumstances when there is a clear reason to do so. These might, for example, include comparative studies of designs for large pieces of equipment such as satellites, FELs etc. Papers on advances in modelling techniques, appropriately validated, are welcome.
