Works of high scientific quality presented at the RAA 2015 conference are candidates for publication in a Special Issue of Journal of Raman Spectroscopy. It should be noted that JRS has high standards in regards to the quality level of manuscripts to be accepted.  The oral presentations with clear advancement and development in the field, already selected by the Scientific Committee, will be welcome and prioritized. However, all posters presenting the advancement in the field will also be considered to be included in the special JRS issue.
