EPJ-ST Special Issue

20 Years of Recurrence Plots: Perspectives for a Multi-purpose Tool of Nonlinear Data Analysis

All contributors are invited to submit their work for a special issue of European Physical Journal – Special Topics (EPJ-ST) about recurrence plots. The standards for publication are as high as for a regular EPJ-ST paper (and thus are in general substantially higher than the standards for acceptance in the workshop). All of the papers are expected to describe original research.


The special issue is now published. Thanks all contributors for their great work and support!

Guide for Authors

Please follow the hints on the EPJ-ST site! LaTeX templates and instructions for preparing documents with LaTeX can be found a ftp.edpsciences.org/pub/epj-spec. Please use the template svjour.cls.

Authors are encouraged to write articles (about 10 pages). If someone feels that his/her material cannot be presented on less than 15 pages, the author might ask us before writing the article whether it is justified to have a longer article on a specific topic (review-like article).


For the submission of articles please send us the article by email (pdf as well as LaTeX source and figures).

Note: To ensure that your manuscript is correctly identified for inclusion into the special issue, it is important that you mention "Special Issue: Recurrence Plots" in your email subject.

Final deadline for submission is September 30, 2007.
