Elsevier launches two new journals: Photoacoustics and Materials Today – Proceedings
“Photoacoustics is an exciting and fast growing field of research that needs dedicated representation to support growth and encourage impact on different applications.”
MUNICH, November 13, 2013 — Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, is pleased to announce the launch of the new open access journal Photoacoustics.
The aim of Photoacoustics is to publish original research and review contributions within the fast growing scientific field of photoacoustics (optoacoustics) and thermoacoustics. Research in this area exploits optically and electromagnetically excited acoustical and thermal phenomena for visualization and characterization of a variety of materials and biological tissues, including living organisms.
Research directions employing photoacoustics are revolutionizing the ways that optical sensing and imaging are applied. Imaging based on photoacoustic techniques is considered the fastest growing bio-imaging modality. Likewise, photoacoustic sensing of tissues and cells, environmental and industrial measurements, spectroscopic detection and applications in nanotechnology and nanomedicine experience an unprecedented growth. In parallel, novel technologies including novel light sources, advanced ultrasonic detectors, novel contrast generation approaches and data processing and inversion methods are advancing to enable more accurate and quantitative use of photoacoustic techniques. Overall, photoacoustic techniques are expected to shape the future of optical methods and bring significant new performance in sensing and imaging sciences.
Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Photoacoustics, Professor Vasilis Ntziachristos, from the Technische Universität München and the Helmholtz Zentrum München, together with Section Editors Professor Daniel Razansky, Professor Stanislav Emelianov and Professor Sanjiv Sam Gambhir, and a highly accredited international Editorial Board, aim for the journal to not only contribute as a medium to report on exciting progress in the field, but also as means to develop a society of scientists with interests in the development and application of the technology.
“Photoacoustics is an exciting and fast growing field of research that needs dedicated representation to support growth and encourage impact on different applications,” said Professor Vasilis Ntziachristos. “This is a time of change for the optical method. And it is time for a journal that captures all the exciting developments in this highly promising field.”
Articles published in Photoacoustics are published open access; first publications are now available online on ScienceDirect.

OXFORD, England, November 13, 2013 — Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, and home to the materials science and engineering family Materials Today, is proud to announce the launch of a new journal, Materials Today: Proceedings.
Conference proceedings continue to play an important part in materials science, documenting the research presented at academic meetings. With the launch of this new journal, Materials Today is now able to expand on its remit to share content and connect the materials science community through a new channel. Materials Today: Proceedings offers the materials science community with a fast and flexible route to the publication of research presented at leading scientific conferences spanning the field of materials science, technology and engineering.
“With Elsevier and Materials Today, supporting the new journal, the door is open to a whole host of channels for the dissemination of research presented at conferences,” said Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Stewart Bland. “Materials Today: Proceedings will provide a quick, reliable, and high impact outlet for conference articles, but we’ll also be able to offer additional coverage of the conferences via Materials Today – for example, by including selected conference presentations as part of our successful webinar program. It’s about providing conference organizers and delegates with choice, and being able to meet the unique needs of each event.”
Materials Today: Proceedings offers open access and traditional subscription based publishing options.
