Presenters at the 5th EOS Topical Meeting on Terahertz Science & Technologies (TST 2016) are kindly invited to consider the submission of a manuscript about their research to the EOS open-access on-line journal JEOS: RP (Journal of the European Optical Society, Rapid Publications, A 20% discount will be applied to the author fee. JEOS:RP publishes articles about recent scientific research and technological innovation as well as review papers about a topic in science or innovation from the recent past. A contribution should be original and will be subjected to the journal’s standard anonymous peer review process for scientific quality. The average time-to-publication of the journal is of the order of 75 days.. The copyright of a published paper resides entirely with the author.

When submitting your manuscript, please, mention the research results were presented in TST 2016.

The author fees, VAT excluded, are:
EOS-members                             280 Euro  (instead of 350 Euro)
non-EOS members                    320 Euro  (instead of 400 Euro)
