Aims & Scope

Detection is a unique platform for publishing novel ideas, research outcomes and fundamental advances in all aspects of detection. Articles in the fields of nondestructive testing and evaluation concerning traditional inspection techniques and the emerging detection topics are invited.

All manuscripts must be prepared in English and are subject to a rigorous and fair peer-review process. Results of original research and development of novel testing techniques and applications of inspection and evaluation technology are particularly welcomed. Generally, accepted papers will appear online within 3 weeks followed by printed hard copy. The journal publishes original papers including but not limited to the following fields:

  • · Accurate Processing of Gamma- and X-ray Spectra
  • · Analysis and Modelling of Experimental Radiation Physics Data
  • · Experimental and Theoretical Computation of Gamma-ray Detector Efficiency
  • · Food Testing
  • · Infrared Detection
  • · Laboratory Reconnaissance
  • · Materials Test
  • · Military Detection
  • · Nondestructive testing and evaluation
  • · Power Quality Detection
  • · Radionuclide Metrology: Environmental Measurements
  • · Security Detection
  • · Sensors and transducers
  • · Structure health monitoring
  • · Water Detection

  • We are also interested in:
    1) Short reports—2-5 page papers where an author can present either preliminary data or an idea with theoretical background, but has not yet completed the research needed for a complete paper;
    2) Short communications—2-5 page papers;
    3) Technical notes—2-5 page papers;
    4) Letters to the Editor (the number of pages is not restricted);
    5) Reviews or book reviews—comments and critiques (the number of pages is not restricted);
    6) Advertisement – 1-2 page papers;
    7) News Letters – 1-5 page papers.
