Virtual Special Issue – VSI
Participants are invited to contribute manuscripts connected to their presented work at the RIVA 2018 Conference for possible publication in either the Journal of Chromatography A with the intention of eventual publication in a Virtual Special Issue (VSI) that is dedicated to the meeting.
A Virtual Special Issue is a new concept which essentially rules out possible delays in publication for contributors to the special issue and will make this conference special issue more complete and accessible than it has ever been. Please see below its advantageous characteristics:
- Accepted papers are published individually as soon as they are accepted in regular journal volumes at Science Direct avoiding the possible delays inherent with tradition special issues;
- Footnotes indicating at which conference they were presented will be the source for selection and linking to the virtual special issue;
- Conference papers will appear together as part of a dedicated collection on Science Direct;
Authors are advised to read carefully the aims and scope of the journal before deciding whether or not to submit their manuscript.
