Journal of Fluorescence is an international forum for peer-reviewed original articles that advance the practice of this established spectroscopic technique. Coverage includes advances in theory and data analysis, studies of the photophysics of aromatic molecules, solvent, and environmental effects, advances in fluorescence microscopy, imaging, photobleaching, and phosphorescence for studies of cell biology, chemical biology and the advanced uses of fluorescence in flow cytometry analysis, immunology, high throughput screening and drug discovery, DNA sequencing and arrays, genomics and proteomics. The journal also publishes papers that describe the synthesis and characterization of new fluorophores, particularly those displaying unique sensitivities or optical properties. In addition to original articles, the Journal also publishes reviews, rapid communications, short communications, letters to the editor, topical news articles, and technical and design notes.

Journal of Fluorescence is edited by Professor Chris D. Geddes, Director of the Institute of Fluorescence at the University of Maryland Biotechnology Institute, Maryland, USA

  • Announcement: COVID-19 impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
