Aims and scope

Acta Acustica, the Journal of the European Acoustics Association (EAA), is an international, peer-reviewed journal on acoustics. Acta Acustica reports on original* scientific research in acoustics and on engineering applications

The journal considers review papers, scientific papers, technical and applied papers, short communications, letters to the editor. Articles can cover all subjects in the field of acoustics, including:

  • General Linear Acoustics
  • Nonlinear Acoustics, Macrosonics
  • Aeroacoustics
  • Atmospheric Sound
  • Underwater Sound
  • Ultrasonics
  • Physical Acoustics
  • Structural Acoustics
  • Noise Control
  • Active Control
  • Environmental Noise
  • Soundscape
  • Building Acoustics
  • Room Acoustics
  • Acoustic Materials and Metamaterials
  • Audio Signal Processing and Transducers
  • Computational and Numerical Acoustics
  • Inverse Problems in Acoustics
  • Hearing, Audiology and Psychoacoustics
  • Speech
  • Musical Acoustics
  • Virtual Acoustics
  • Auditory Quality of Systems
  • Animal bioacoustics
  • History of Acoustics

Along with its long tradition of publication and its mission of dissemination, the EAA is the first Acoustics Society to publish its journal in Full Open Access.

The EAA has allocated a budget for supporting individual Members of European Societies for the cost of publication (Article Processing Charge, APC). Rules for support for APC can be found here

*PLEASE NOTE THAT publication in EAA conferences or in conferences of the EAA member societies does not affect the manuscript submission and the review process in Acta Acustica. The material submitted is still considered as original material.

The same applies for manuscripts previously published on Preprint servers. These submissions are considered as original.
