    This collection of surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) papers has been put together to reflect the importance of the technique in modern analytical chemical research. A number of papers featuring SERS over the years have gone into understanding the phenomena and even now there are still debates about the exact mechanism of the surface enhancement depending on the nature of the system being investigated.
