IOS Press Launches New Journal, Biomedical Spectroscopy and Imaging
14 July 2012
IOS Press BV
IOS Press is pleased to announce the launch of Biomedical Spectroscopy and Imaging, the first journal to integrate the broad areas of spectroscopy and imaging. It will provide timely publication of basic and applied research that uses spectroscopic and imaging techniques across all areas of life sciences.
“The timing is perfect for the integration of these two methodologies so that both spatial and molecular details of complex biological systems can be determined at high resolution. The two approaches complement each other in many ways and so it is not surprising to see a rapid growth in studies where both methods are simultaneously applied,” said Editor-in-Chief Parvez Haris, CChem, FRSC, FRSPH.
Dr. Haris comes to Biomedical Spectroscopy and Imaging after a successful tenure as Editor-in-Chief of Spectroscopy: An International Journal. He is head of the Biomedical and Environmental Health Group at De Montfort University, Leicester, UK, and his research studies involve the use of a wide array of spectroscopic methods for analysis of biological systems with particular focus on human health. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and also a Fellow of the Royal Society for the Promotion of Public Health. Dr. Haris is joined by an editorial board with expertise in diverse areas of spectroscopy and imaging from around the world.
Biomedical Spectroscopy and Imaging will provide a single forum for experts in spectroscopy and imaging as applied to biomedical problems, and also for life scientists who use these powerful methods for advancing their research work. It will also feature articles describing the development of new devices and technologies, based on spectroscopy and imaging methods, for application in diverse areas including medicine, biomedical science, biomaterials science, environmental science, pharmaceutical science, proteomics, genomics, metabolomics, microbiology, biotechnology, genetic engineering, and nanotechnology.
Dr. Einar Fredriksson, Director, IOS Press, commented, “These are exciting times in the development of spectroscopic and imaging tools. IOS Press is proud to provide a forum to advance our understanding of how these powerful methods can shed light on complex biological systems.”
The inaugural issue of Biomedical Spectroscopy and Imaging will publish on Friday, July 13. Carrying on the close to 30-year tradition of Spectroscopy: An International Journal, the journal welcomes submissions focusing on biomedical applications from authors in the form of original articles, brief communications, rapid communications, reviews and minireviews.
