The International Research and Review Journal for MicroscopyIncorporating Micron and Microscopica Acta and Electron Microscopy Reviews
Micron aims to serve as an interdisciplinary forum for all work that involves new applications of microscopy or where microscopy plays a central role. The journal will publish on the design, application, practice or theory of microscopy and microanalysis, including reports on optical, electron-beam, and scanning-probe systems. It also aims at the regular publication of review papers.
The journal embraces original research work in biology, medicine, nanoscience and nanotechnology, materialsscience and engineering. Over the past several years, it has succeeded in publishing manuscripts within theshortest possible time while maintaining a high standard of refereeing and presentation. Author surveys indicate a high level of satisfaction with the journal.

Aims and Scope
Micron is an interdisciplinary forum for all work that involves new applications of microscopy or where advanced microscopy plays a central role. The journal will publish on the design, methods, application, practice or theory of microscopy and microanalysis, including reports on optical, electron-beam, X-ray microtomography, and scanning-probe systems. It also aims at the regular publication of review papers, short communications, as well as thematic issues on contemporary developments in microscopy and microanalysis. The journal embraces original research in which microscopy has contributed signifi cantly to knowledge in biology, life science, nanoscience and nanotechnology, materials science and engineering.

1. Developments in microscopy: This section will contain short articles on topical areas of interesting progress in microscopy and will aim to provide a summary of the current developments in those areas. The Editors would welcome suggestions.
2. Invited communications: Short articles on various aspects of microscopy which are considered to be of signifi cant political, regional or historical interest will be commissioned by the Editors. Announcements and reports from offi cial, national and international organisations concerned with microscopy will be welcome.
3. Original research papers: These should represent the results of a reasonably complete investigation where knowledge has been advanced by the application of microscopy or electron probe analysis to a particular problem, by developing new techniques or by contributing, either practically or theoretically, to the design and use of microscopical equipment. The number of plates will usually be limited to fi ve whole pages at the discretion of one of the Editors.
4. Short communications: These should represent the results of work which can be published in a relatively brief fashion, e.g. introduction of a new design feature of a microscope, ancillary apparatus, technique or important modifi cation of an existing one; fi rst series of observations on the surface or internal fi ne structure of a particular tissue; a new application of microscopy or probe analysis, etc. As presented, the work must be reasonably complete in itself. The text should not normally exceed two pages of print while the number of plates will usually be limited to three pages.
5. Review articles: Reviews covering any subject concerned with the application, practice or theory of microscopy, electron probe microanalysis and image processing are acceptable and should be between 3000 and 10,000 words in length. Within reasonable limits, no maximum is set for the number of micrographs that can be included and the completed article should be submitted to Dr J. R. Harris (biological reviews) and Professor R. F. Egerton (physical sciences reviews).
6. Conference reports: From time to time summaries will be commissioned of Conferences and Symposia considered to be of particular interest. Conference Secretaries or other individuals who will be participating in such meetings and wish to assist the journal by writing such a summary should contact one of the Editors as soon as possible before the date of the meeting. These articles will be given priority as regards speed of publication and credited to the author concerned.
7. Book reviews: Books appropriate to the scope of the journal will be reviewed by experts in the fi eld for the benefi t of readers of Micron. Publishers are requested to submit one copy of any new book review which they consider relevent via the online submission tool at http://ees.elsevier.com/jmic/.
8. Disks: In order to avoid publication delays, authors should submit only the fi nal accepted version of their paper on disk, incorporating any corrections recommended by the referees.
