About Acoustics

Aims and Scope:

Acoustics (ISSN yyyy-yyyy) is dedicated to the scientific dissemination of rigorously peer-reviewed publications regarding acoustics. Being open access and online available, it is able to offer excellent visibility and a fast processing time from submission to publication. The journal aims to provide an inter-disciplinary forum to showcase state-of-the-art research challenges on acoustics science and engineering. The following topics are of primary interest: linear and nonlinear acoustics; engineering acoustics; vibrations; aeroacoustics; architectural acoustics; structural acoustics; underwater sound; ultrasound and related biological effects; audiology and bioacoustics.

Acoustics publishes full research papers, communications and review articles. There is no restriction on the length of papers or charge for extra colors, etc. Electronic files supplying details of calculations and experimental procedures can be deposited as supplementary materials.
