2018-04-13: Call for Papers for a Focus Issue of the Bioelectromagnetics journal, dedicated to EMF-Med 2018 Split conference

We are pleased to inform you that the EMF-Med 2018 Split conference, 10-13 September 2018, will be followed by a (first ever!) Focus Issue of the Bioelectromagnetics journal (published by Wiley, IF: 1.933), dedicated to EMF-Med 2018 conference.

  • The Focus Issue will publish a selection of peer-reviewed papers, submitted as journal manuscripts originating from the conference (i.e. extending the conference paper/abstract into a journal manuscript).
  • The submitted manuscripts must have less than 30% duplication with EMF-Med 2018 conference paper/abstract.
  • Authors will be invited to submit the journal manuscript upon expressing their interest to do so, and upon the assessment of the Review Editor: Antonio Šarolić. The authors will be able to express their interest during the conference paper/abstract submission process.
  • The journal manuscript will undergo a standard peer-review process, followed by the final decision of the Editor-in-Chief.
  • The Focus Issue papers may cover any of the listed conference topics.
  • Bioelectromagnetics journal publishes reports of completed studies, not preliminary investigations, results, speculations, research agenda, or project proposals.
