Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Spectral Line Shapes in Plasma (SLSP) code comparison workshop series [1] has gained a steady momentum, with four meetings organized thus far—in 2012, 2013, 2015, and 2017. A large number of diverse problems have been analyzed, advancing understanding of the phenomena involved and increasing accuracy of the models. Doubtlessly, this has significantly aided in improving theoretical aspects of line-shape analysis—one of the most important tools for diagnostics of both laboratory and space plasma.

The first Special Issue of Atoms under this title was published in 2014 [2], covering selected topics from the first two workshops. With the hope of establishing tradition, we decided to arrange for the present Special Issue as a place for disseminating new results obtained in the course of the 3rd and 4th SLSP workshops. In addition, as it was also the case with the first “Spectral Line Shapes in Plasmas” Special Issue, we welcome contributions from the wider community working on diverse aspects of calculations of spectral line shapes in plasma.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Atoms is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 350 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
