Springer and the Korea Basic Science Institute (KBSI) are partnering to publish the Journal of Analytical Science and Technology (JAST). As a fully sponsored open access journal, it will be part of the SpringerOpen portfolio, available on SpringerLink. This international peer-reviewed journal was launched by the KBSI in 2010, however, starting this year, it will be published in Springer's open access program.
The Journal of Analytical Science and Technology publishes original research and review articles on all aspects of analytical principles, techniques, methods, procedures, and equipment. The journal offers a special section reporting on new developments and significant applications in analytical technology and equipment that do not yet have a complete theoretical foundation.
As an open access journal, all research results from JAST will be freely available online. SpringerOpen journals are published under the Creative Commons Attribution license, which facilitates the open distribution of copyrighted work.
