Accelerators for Research and Sustainable Development: novel concepts and technical innovation

Tens of thousands of accelerators around the world help create radiopharmaceuticals, treat cancer, preserve food, monitor the environment, strengthen materials, understand fundamental physics, study the past, and even disclose crimes. The far-reaching capabilities of accelerator technology contribute in particular to the overall progress towards sustainable development. The present collection investigates the current developments in emerging accelerator technologies specifically relevant to these aims.

Aims and scope

EPJ Techniques and Instrumentation primarily focuses on the design, implementation, and application of new techniques in all areas of the physical and applied sciences. Of particular interest to the journal are advances produced by:

  • Laboratory-specific custom instrumentation and diagnostics
  • Innovative and clever experimental techniques
  • Refinements to established experimental setups
  • Novel analytical methods

Such articles should summarize a novel, significant result, and provide a detailed description of the equipment, methods, or techniques used to produce the result. They may also include discussions of underlying theory, and/or potential cross-disciplinary applications.  

The journal is also an outlet for the critical assessment, validation and documentation of newly established knowledge and invites article that:

  • comprehensively summarize and review laboratory and instrumentation related procedures and protocols
  • contain best practice and related benchmark studies in advanced experimental data acquisition and processing.
  • contain best practices and related benchmark studies concerning the operation, performance and development of complex scientific instrumentation and equipment.

EPJ Techniques and Instrumentation  publishes regular articles, as well as short commentary articles intended to promote discussion and debate. Reviews of known techniques, or of open questions in emerging fields, are also strongly encouraged. This fully Open Access journal is devoted to the broad, timely, and public dissemination of information.

About EPJ

EPJ is a rapidly growing series of internationally reputed, peer-reviewed journals that are indexed in all major citation databases. The editorial boards of the EPJ are composed of leading specialists in their respective fields and have made it their mission to uphold the highest standards of scientific quality in the journals. EPJ started in the late 1990s as a merger and co-publication of Zeitschrift für Physik (Springer), Journal de Physique (EDP Sciences) and Il Nuovo Cimento (Società Italiana di Fisica) covering all aspects of the pure and applied physical sciences. Its spectrum has since expanded to encompass many interdisciplinary topics, including complexity and data sciences.
