Acoustics Australia Article Submissions: http://www.springer.com/engineering/journal/40857
Acoustics Australia is the journal of the Australian Acoustical Society and from 2015 has been published by Springer. The journal accepts general technical articles in all areas of acoustics of interest to members of the Society, together with relevant news and views. Acoustics Australia does not aim to be a primary scientific research journal, and therefore does not normally publish primary research papers, with the exception of those that apply specifically to Australia. Review papers cover particular fields of acoustics and may be addressed to a non-specialist acoustics readership. Tutorial papers may deal with important acoustical principles or techniques. Original papers must contribute to the current body of knowledge and comprehensively explain the project aims, the procedure and results and thoroughly discuss the findings and their wider application. Technical Notes might serve to highlight the solution of a particular technical problem. Letters are generally short and may refer to content in a previous issue of the journal.
Submission of an article to Acoustics Australia implies that all persons listed as authors have participated sufficiently in the work to take public responsibility for the content, have made substantial contributions to (a) conception and design or analysis and interpretation of the data, and to (b) drafting the article or revising it critically for important intellectual content and have read and approved the final version to be published. Also the manuscript must represent original material, has not been previously published and is not under consideration for publication elsewhere. Should the article be accepted for publication, the corresponding author will be asked to sign a form that has these statements. This form also transfers copyright to Acoustics Australia. The authors will retain rights to use the material freely but with appropriate reference to the prior publication in Acoustics Australia. Authors are permitted to share the published version of their journal articles in their institution's repository without restriction.
Articles, which includes review papers, tutorial papers, original papers, technical notes and letters should be submitted to Springer via this link http://www.springer.com/engineering/journal/40857. Please take note of all the instructions to authors available from this website. Any special requests, such as accompanying audio files etc, should be included in the accompanying email or can be submitted directly to the Chief Editor.
Following submission, all articles will be submitted to independent peer review. Acceptance for publication only occurs after the reviewers are satisfied with the content of the article.
The article then goes into the publication process within Springer and on completion of that process will be immediately available on the journal website with a DOI and can be cited from that time. The accepted articles are combined with Australian Acoustical Society news and editorials into 3 issues each year: in April, August and December.
In addition to peer-reviewed articles, we also publish contributions to Acoustics Forum within the news and notes section of the journal. Forum articles should generally not exceed three pages (3000 words) in length, but may be much shorter, and are generally aimed at generating awareness or discussion of a particular issue in the acoustics community or reporting on a particular acoustics project. These contributions are reviewed by the Editorial Committee before acceptance. The formatting guide for Acoustics Forum articles is available below and these should be submitted directly to the editor via AcousticsAustralia@acoustics.asn.au.
