Call for Papers

Refereed Publication of Papers

Participants of the FCC Week 2016 are encouraged to submit articles to a Special Edition of the online journal Physical Review - Accelerators and Beams (PRAB). Accepted papers, which relate to contributions of the FCC Week 2016, will be issued in a special edition of this journal.


Please note:

  1. Authors must submit directly via the PRAB submission website.
  2. Authors should indicate that the paper is for the FCCW2016 Special Edition, in the message accompanying submission to PRST-AB.
  3. Papers will go through the standard independent refereeing process of PRST-AB.
  4. FCC Week 2016 Special Edition papers should be submitted before 10 July 2016.
  5. The issuing of a Special Edition is subject to a minimum number of papers being accepted.

Cross-referencing between papers from the FCC Week 2016 is highly encouraged. This should ensure a high level of visibility of all articles published in this special edition and may boost authors’ research indices.

To allow the necessary coordination participants are requested to inform the PRAB FCC Week 2016 Special Edition Editor (Johannes Gutleber, CERN) whether they intend to submit an article to PRAB. Please see the guidelines for contributors here.

About the Journal:

This Special Edition offers the opportunity to expand upon original research presented at FCCW2016 in a peer-reviewed journal.

PRST-AB is a peer-reviewed, all-electronic journal published by the American Physical Society (APS). The all-electronic nature allows "Special Editions" while maintaining thorough peer review and timely publication. If accepted for publication, the articles will be published as regular PRST-AB articles. Publication will be timely; articles will be published as soon as they are ready, without waiting for other papers presented at the conference to be published. In addition, a special Table of Contents will be created at the PRST-AB website with links to the published papers. It will be updated each time a paper related to FCCW2016 is published.

In keeping with PRST-AB policy papers must contain either important new results in science and/or technology or review active areas of accelerator and particle beam research. Papers in the first category must contain new results. Confirmation of previously published results of unusual importance can be considered as new, as can significant null results. Review articles should review active areas of research in a form that is useful to both practitioners and people entering the field. Authors are asked to give considerable attention to the presentation of their material, making introductions accessible to intermediate graduate students and readers from other fields. The body of each paper should be economically and thoughtfully organized. Papers cannot be identical duplicates of work submitted for publication either to another journal or to conference proceedings, including FCCW2016.

Material previously published, or submitted for publication, in a Letters journal or in conference proceedings, and here specifically presentations and posters prepared for FCCW2016, can be the basis of an article in the PRST-AB Special Edition provided the submitted manuscript presents more information, enabling the reader to obtain an improved understanding of the subject.
