Topical issue of JQSRT

Following the well-established ELS practice, we are pleased to solicit papers for a special issue of the Journal of Quantitative Spectroscopy and Radiative Transfer (JQSRT) and hope that you will want your state-of-the-art research to become part of yet another benchmark collection of papers on electromagnetic scattering and related topics. We expect this topical issue to be especially visible since it will be dedicated to the 150th anniversary of Maxwell's electromagnetics.

This special issue will consist only of full-size papers documenting research either reported at the conference or pertaining to the main topics of ELS-XV. Extended abstracts of conference presentations will not be considered. Each submission will be thoroughly reviewed by at least two independent referees to ensure that all accepted manuscripts satisfy the highest standards of scientific quality adopted for JQSRT. Again, this will be a topical issue of JQSRT rather than a conference proceedings volume.

To expedite the communication of your research results to the scientific community at large, our goal is to have the entire special issue published in about 10 months after the conference. This implies a tight review and production schedule. The JQSRT web site will be set up to accommodate ELS-XV submissions as early as 01 August 2015.
The submission deadline is 15 September 2015.

You can submit your manuscript by going to:

You will need to register in order to create a personal account unless you have it already. The submission process it quite straightforward, but one aspect of it is especially important. Specifically, please select the paper category called “SI:ELS-XV” to make sure that your manuscript is flagged as an ELS-XV submission and is not misplaced.

We thank you in advance for your cooperation and look forward to your high-quality submissions!
