Spectroscopy pertains to the dispersion of an object's light into its component colors (i.e. energies). There are two distinctive classes of spectra: Continuous and discrete. For a continuous spectrum, the light is composed of a wide, continuous range of colors (energies). With discrete spectra, one sees only bright or dark lines at very distinct and sharply-defined colors (energies). Discrete spectra with bright lines are known as emission spectra; those with dark lines are called absorption spectra. Spectroscopy is a powerful tool in astronomy, which helps in fetching information about the temperature, density, composition, and important physical processes of an astronomical object. Chemical Sciences journal is one of the best Peer- reviewed journals in Spectroscopy. The journal contains several peer reviewed feature articles. These articles will overview all areas of particular significance in spectroscopy. Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
