About the editor

Ridha Horchani

Sultan Qaboos University

Dr. Ridha Horchani is an associate professor of physics at Sultan Qaboos University. Prior to this he was a post doc at the institute of physics and astronomy, University of Aarhus, Denmark, where he conducted a post‐doctoral research on the experimental investigation of the properties of atomic gases at extremely low temperatures in order to understand the fundamental quantum mechanical behavior of these many particle systems. His previous professional experience includes assistant professor at Paris Sud-11 University, France. Dr. Ridha also worked as researcher at laboratoire Aimé Cotton, France, in the development of theoretical, methodological and experimental methods to study the structure and dynamics at very low energies of atoms and small molecules in gas phase, as well as their interactions with electromagnetic fields.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dolores Kuzelj

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
