Call for submissions to AFS Special Issues

We are pleased to invite submissions of Research, Review, Data and Opinion papers to be considered for our topical collections. These collections (virtual collections) are brought together as a result of a symposium, a congress, a working group meeting, or even a research project and are usually edited by a Guest Editor.

Authors must follow the instructions for authors available on Springer website and may use the templates available for the Title page and the Research article. Accepted papers are published in the regular issues and also grouped online under the topical collections tab. Upon submission in Editorial Manager, authors must select the corresponding short name as Article type to assign their manuscripts to the special issue.
