Author Manuscript Instructions
We invite you to submit your manuscript for potential publication in NCSLI Measure. All submissions are peer reviewed prior to publication. There are two types of manuscripts that we will consider:
1. Technical Papers - We publish high quality, well researched, and original technical papers that focus on various aspects of metrology. Topic areas include but are not limited to: measurement standards, measurement techniques, measurement instrumentation, international or national comparisons, uncertainty analysis, laboratory accreditation, laboratory management, or new advances in measurement science. Manuscripts are welcomed from all disciplines of metrology, including papers describing electrical, mechanical, physical, and chemical measurements. In addition, the submission of review articles in these areas is also welcomed. Technical papers typically should not exceed 7,500 words, but exceptions will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
2. Technical Notes - We periodically publish technical notes that focus on a specific measurement or calibration procedure, a measurement technique, a data analysis process, or a maintenance detail, that is of interest to calibration or metrology laboratories. Technical notes do not necessarily need to focus on original research or measurement results, but authors of technical notes should still be familiar with all relevant literature, and cite accordingly. Technical notes should follow the same format as technical papers, but should be limited to approximately 3,000 words.
