Call for Contributions to the

VUVX2010 Special Issue
"Advances in Vacuum UltraViolet and X-ray Physics"

to be published in
Journal of Electron Spectroscopy and Related Phenonmena

within 6 months after the conference


Contributed papers are invited on all fundamental and applied topics of UltraViolet and X-ray physics.  Original work of both theoretical and experimental nature is welcomed.  Given the limited journal-page allocation for this special issue, only the first 120 "qualified" papers or a maximum of 600 journal pages will be published.  Inclusion will be on a competitive, first-come first-serve basis Any articles associated with the conference that are accepted after the page limit is reached will be published in a subsequent regular issue of the journal, with a note indicating its relation to VUVX2010.

All manuscripts will be subjected to the normal refereeing process for the Journal of Electron Spectroscopy (2 reviews).  Our goal is to create a high-impact volume that will become a high-quality, highly cited modern reference for new advances in VUV and X-ray physics to date.  We strongly encourage and invite all participants to submit an original article for consideration for publication in this special issue as early as possible to ensure a publication spot in this special issue

A regular article should be no longer than 4 journal pages, or approximately 3000 words (with no more than 4 figures or tables, each occupying a quarter page).  Please note:
One journal page = 1000 words (not counting any figure or table).  Plenary and Invited Speakers are invited to submit somewhat longer articles.

All manuscripts will be submitted on-line through the Elsevier Editorial System for the Journal at:
