PRAB special edition

Refereed Publication of “High-Intensity and High-Brightness Hadron Beams (HB2016)” papers

HB2016 authors who, in addition to publishing in the conference proceedings, wish to have a refereed publication, are encouraged to consider submission of articles to a Special Edition of the online journal Physical Review Accelerators and Beams (PRAB). Accepted papers, which relate to contributions of the HB2016 workshop, will be issued in a special edition of this journal. Please note that for this option:

  1. Papers must contain additional material to the paper published in the conference proceedings. Typically the article may follow the same structure as the article presented to the HB2016 workshop, but should contain extra theory, modeling, data, or data analyses.
  2. Authors must submit their manuscripts directly via the PRAB submission website.
  3. Papers will go through the standard independent refereeing process of PRAB.
  4. Papers will be accepted up to 2016 December 1.
  5. The issuing of a Special Edition is subject to a minimum number of papers being accepted.

To allow the necessary coordination with PRAB, authors are requested when they submit papers for the workshop proceedings to inform the PRAB HB2016 Special Edition Editor whether they also intend to submit an extended article to PRAB.

In 2008, 2010, and 2012 there have already been special High-Intensity and High-Brightness Hadron Beams PRAB editions. You may find the previous special editions at
