Methods and Applications in Fluorescence(MAF) is pleased to announce that we will be publishing a collection of research articles based on work presented at the MAF 2017 conference in Bruges.
The success of the MAF conference series, reflects the enormous progress that has been made in fluorescence over the last few decades. Topics covered include new developments in (lifetime) spectroscopy, imaging (including microscopy), and probe design, but also in nanomaterials (including beads and thin films), opto-electronic components, in data acquisition and processing. The widespread applications of fluorescence are also covered, for example in life sciences where it complements (and competes with) other techniques.
In this issue we plan to present a selection of the most exciting work presented at the conference. Articles submitted for publication should contain original research which is not substantially similar to work published elsewhere. All articles will be peer reviewed to international journal standard.
Regular research papers in MAF are typically about 8500 words in length, including space for figures, graphs and so on (figures are equivalent to about 300 words each). Review articles are between 12,000 and 18,000 words in length. Technical Notes are up to 5000 words in length.
