The Journal of Spectroscopy and Molecular Sciences (JSMS) is an international and interdisciplinary journal dedicated to the publication of cutting-edge research in all areas of spectroscopy and molecular sciences and provides an advanced scientific forum. Through its online service by DergiPark, JSMS aims to reach worldwide readership. Our main goal is to provide rigorous peer-review process, enable rapid publication of research, achieve high impact among the world-wide journals and inspire the scientific community. We strongly encourage researchers to publish their experimental, theoretical, and computational results particularly in spectroscopy and molecular sciences in our journal. Submitted papers could be Research Article, Report, Review, and Letter. To be published in JSMS, a paper should meet four general criteria:

  • Strong evidence for its conclusions. 
  • Novelty.
  • Extreme importance to scientists in the specific field.
  • Interesting to researchers in other related disciplines.

In general, there should be an apparent reason why the work merits the visibility of publication in JSMS. Our journal seeks to publish those papers that are most influential in their fields or accross fields and that will significantly advance scientific understanding. JSMS is published monthly.

There is no restriction on the length of the papers or the number of electronic multimedia and supplementary files. For all articles, the full experimental details must be provided so that the results can be reproduced. Electronic files can be deposited as supplementary online material where necessary (including animated pictures, videos, interactive Excel sheets, software executables and others).
