About Atoms


Atoms (ISSN 2218-2004) is an international and cross-disciplinary scholarly journal of scientific studies related to all aspects of the atom. It publishes reviews, regular research papers, and communications; there is no restriction on the maximum length of the papers. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical research in as much detail as possible. Full experimental and/or methodical details must be provided for research articles. There are, in addition, unique features of this journal:

  • manuscripts regarding research proposals and research ideas will be particularly welcomed.
  • computed data, program listings, and files regarding the full details of the experimental procedure, if unable to be published in a normal way, can be deposited as supplementary material.


  • experimental and theoretical atomic, molecular, and nuclear physics, chemical physics
  • the study of atoms, molecules, nuclei and their interactions and constituents (protons, neutrons, and electrons)
  • quantum theory, applications and foundations
  • microparticles, clusters
  • exotic systems (muons, quarks, anti-matter)
  • atomic, molecular, and nuclear spectroscopy and collisions
  • nuclear energy (fusion and fission), radioactive decay
  • nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and electron spin resonance (ESR), hyperfine interactions
  • orbitals, valence and bonding behavior
  • atomic and molecular properties (energy levels, radiative properties, magnetic moments, collisional data) and photon interactions
