    Submission of Manuscripts

    Instructions for Authors

    ELECTRONIC SUBMISSION
    All submissions must be made via online submission system Editorial Manager: http://www.editorialmanager.com/openphys
    Manuscripts submitted under multiple authorship are reviewed on the assumption that all listed authors concur in the submission and are responsible for its content - the corresponding author is responsible for informing the coauthors of the manuscript status throughout the submission, review, and production process.

    ELECTRONIC FORMATS ALLOWED
    All manuscripts submitted to Open Physics must be created in LaTeX environment.

    They can be submitted as a LaTeX source file with figures in EPS, PDF, JPG or PNG format, or a pdf file created after LaTeX source compilation. Manuscripts created in other formats (like Word documents etc) are not allowed.

    FIRST-TIME SUBMISSION OF MANUSCRIPTS
    Authors should register themselves first as new users and then upload their manuscripts.

    In case of any technical problems, please contact the Managing Editor of Open Physics:
    Paulina Leśna-Szreter PhD, Paulina.Lesna@degruyteropen.com
    or Senior Editor:
    Krzysztof Malarz PhD, krzysztof.malarz@degruyteropen.com

    Authors are encouraged to recommend up to five reviewers who are not members of their institution(s) and have never been associated with them or their laboratory(ies); please provide contact information for suggested reviewers. The Editors reserve the right to select expert reviewers at their discretion.

    Manuscripts that have been previously rejected, or withdrawn after being returned for modification, may be resubmitted if the major criticisms have been addressed. The cover letter must state that the manuscript is a resubmission, and the former manuscript number should be provided.

    To ensure fair and objective decision-making, authors must declare any associations that pose a conflict of interest in connection with evaluated manuscripts (see Editorial Policy for details). Authors may suggest up to two referees not to use, and in such cases additional justification should be provided.

    SUBMISSION OF REVISED ARTICLES
    Resubmitted manuscripts should be accompanied by a letter outlining a point-by-point response to Editor's and reviewers' comments and detailing the changes made to the manuscript. A copy of the original manuscript should be included for comparison if the Journal Editor requests one. If it is the first revision, authors need to return the revised manuscript within 60 days; if it is the second revision, authors need to return the revised manuscript within 14 days. Additional time for resubmission must be requested in advance. If the above mentioned deadlines are not met, the manuscript will be treated as a new submission.
