Journal of Research of the National Institute of Standards and Technology

The Journal of Research of NIST reports NIST research and development in metrology and related fields of: physical science, engineering, applied mathematics, statistics, biotechnology, information technology. The Journal of Research is peer-reviewed and indexed by all major indexing services, including Web of Science and Scopus.

When citing articles from the Journal of Research of NIST without issue numbers please use the following format: Kramida, A (2013). "Critically Evaluated Energy Levels and Spectral Lines of Singly Ionized Indium (In II)". Journal of Research of NIST 118: 52. http://dx.doi.org/10.6028/jres.118.004

Starting in 2012, the Journal became an electronic-only publication under a new rapid publication model - papers are published after full review, within 30-45 days of submission. 

Papers published in the Journal of Research of NIST are not subject to copyright in the U.S. Authors may post the formatted versions on their websites.
