JAAS is widely considered to be the number-one journal publishing innovative research on the fundamental theory, instrumentation, practice and application of spectrometric techniques to elemental and isotopic analysis in all areas including the biomedical, geological and nanotechnological sciences.

JAAS contains peer-reviewed full research papers, technical notes, urgent communications, selected review articles.

Six popular Atomic Spectrometry Updates are provided each year that critically review the most significant recently published research in the field of analytical atomic spectroscopy.  

RSC Journal RSS feeds now include structured subject and compound information, enabling at-a-glance identification of relevant articles.

Readership is cross-disciplinary and includes the following fields: atomic spectrometry, mass spectrometry, geochemistry, biomedical and clinical science, pharmaceutical analysis, environmental science, toxicology, forensics and archaeometry. The readership spans researchers in universities and related academic institutes, government and research organisations, industry, independent laboratories and consulting firms.

Abstracts: Cited in various databases including Analytical Abstracts, ISI Web of Knowledge and Scopus

Techniques covered in JAAS include: plasma-based methods, flame- and furnace-based methods, sampling and sample preparation, hyphenated techniques for sample introduction, sample fractionation and speciation, atomic mass spectrometry, isotope ratio mass spectrometry, laser spectroscopy, X-ray-based spectroscopy methods, surface analytical techniques and statistics, modelling and chemometrics for atomic spectrometry.
