Contribute an article to "Structural Dynamics"

We invite all speakers as well as participants of the XAFS16 satellite meeting “Soft X-ray in Energy and Time” (SXET) to contribute an article to the Special Topic Issue of the journal “Structural Dynamics”.

“Structural Dynamics” is a newly launched open-access journal jointly published by AIP Publishing and by the ACA ( .

It highlights research articles on geometric and electronic structure studies of molecular, biological and condensed matter systems, enabled by the emerging new instruments (e.g. XFELs, high harmonic generation, etc.) and their related new experimental and theoretical methodologies, e.g. RIXS, XES, ultrafast PES, etc.

Publication fees will be waived to Invited Speaker.

For Participants the publication fees will be reduced if they have an ACA Membership. Contributed Articles in the special Topic on "Soft X-ray in Energy and Time" will normally be charged at $ 2,200 disregarding the length of the paper. But we encourage the authors to sign up for ACA membership for a discount in publication charge. The American Crystallographic Association has agreed to provide 1-year free membership for the submission on the special topic issue. Contributed articles will then be charged at a discounted rate $ 1,500 provided the corresponding author is an ACA member.

We expect you to submit your article within a month after the end of the meeting.
