“Analytical Methods requires that methods and technology reported in the journal are sufficiently innovative, robust, accurate, and compared to other available methods for the intended application. Developments with interdisciplinary approaches are particularly welcome. Systems should be proven with suitably complex and analytically challenging samples.
We encourage developments within, but not limited to, the following technologies and applications:
- global health, point-of-care and molecular diagnostics
- biosensors and bioengineering
- drug development and pharmaceutical analysis
- applied microfluidics and nanotechnology
- omics studies, such as proteomics, metabolomics or glycomics
- environmental, agricultural and food science
- biochemical and clinical analysis
- forensic analysis
- industrial process and method development”
The updates relate to the need for systems to be proven with suitably complex and analytically challenging samples and we also highlight some of the technologies and applications that the journal is interested in.
A final update is that the previous requirement for a societal impact statement has now been removed and this will be replaced by a requirement for a short (1-2 sentences long) significance statement for authors to highlight the technological advance and/or significance of the methods and applications in each submitted manuscript.
Any queries regarding these changes should be directed to the Analytical Methods Editorial Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
