    Open Access

    Open Physics (former Central European Journal of Physics) is a peer-reviewed Open Access journal, devoted to the publication of fundamental research results in all fields of physics.

    Aims and Scope

    The journal publishes research and review articles, rapid and short communications, comments and replies that cover the following areas of physical sciences:

    • Astrophysics,
    • Atomic and Molecular Physics,
    • Biological and Medical Physics,
    • Complex Networks, Socio- and Econophysics,
    • Computational Physics,
    • Condensed Matter Physics,
    • Cosmology and Gravitation,
    • Fluid Mechanics,
    • Geophysics,
    • Nanophysics,
    • Optics and Lasers,
    • Particle and Nuclear Physics,
    • Plasma Physics,
    • Statistical and Nonlinear Physics,
    • Surface Physics,
    • Theoretical and Mathematical Physics..

    Why submit

    Authors of Open Physics benefit from:

    • fast, fair and constructive peer review;
    • extensive promotion of each published article
    • language-correction services for authors from non-English speaking regions
    • unrestricted access for all readers
    • no space constraints
    • immediate publication

    Instructions for Authors

    All submissions must be made via online submission system Editorial Manager:
    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.

    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.

    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:
    Anna Droba PhD,
    or Senior Editor:
    Dr. Krzysztof Malarz,

    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.

    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.
