After acceptance

After acceptance 

Upon acceptance of your article you will receive a link to the special Author Query Application at Springer’s web page where you can indicate whether you wish to order OpenChoice and offprints.
Once the Author Query Application has been completed, your article will be processed and you will receive the proofs.

Open Choice 

In addition to the normal publication process (whereby an article is submitted to the journal and access to that article is granted to customers who have purchased a subscription), Springer now provides an alternative publishing option: Springer Open Choice. A Springer Open Choice article receives all the benefits of a regular subscription-based article, but in addition is made available publicly through Springer’s online platform SpringerLink. We regret that Springer Open Choice cannot be ordered for published articles.


Offprints can be ordered by the corresponding author.

Color illustrations 

Online publication of color illustrations is free of charge. For color in the print version, authors will be expected to make a contribution towards the extra costs.

Proof reading 

The purpose of the proof is to check for typesetting or conversion errors and the completeness and accuracy of the text, tables and figures. Substantial changes in content, e.g., new results, corrected values, title and authorship, are not allowed without the approval of the Editor.
After online publication, further changes can only be made in the form of an Erratum, which will be hyperlinked to the article.

Online First 

The article will be published online after receipt of the corrected proofs. This is the official first publication citable with the DOI. After release of the printed version, the paper can also be cited by issue and page numbers.

    Aims and Scope


    Australasian Physical & Engineering Sciences in Medicine (APESM) is a multidisciplinary forum for information and research on the application of physics and engineering to medicine and human physiology. APESM covers a broad range of topics that include but is not limited to:

    - Medical physics in radiotherapy
    - Medical physics in diagnostic radiology
    - Medical physics in nuclear medicine
    - Mathematical modelling applied to medicine and human biology
    - Clinical biomedical engineering
    - Feature extraction, classification of EEG, ECG, EMG, EOG, and other biomedical signals;
    - Medical imaging - contributions to new and improved methods;
    - Modelling of physiological systems
    - Image processing to extract information from images, e.g. fMRI, CT, etc.;
    - Biomechanics, especially with applications to orthopaedics.
    - Nanotechnology in medicine

    APESM offers original reviews, scientific papers, scientific notes, technical papers, educational notes, book reviews and letters to the editor.

    APESM is the journal of the Australasian College of Physical Scientists and Engineers in Medicine, and also the official journal of the College of Biomedical Engineers, Engineers Australia and the Asia-Oceania Federation of Organizations for Medical Physics.
