    Mathematics of Quantum and Nano Technologies is an interdisciplinary, fully peer-reviewed open access journal devoted to the publication of high quality research involving mathematical methods used in quantum sciences, nanotechnology and quantum engineering.

    Aims and Scope

    We believe that in the long-term the relation between Mathematics and Technologies is symbiotic and reflexive. In the hindsight perspective of history, the contemporary run of this relation will be seen as era-defining.

    Mathematics of Quantum and Nano Technologies is intended for dissemination of innovative mathematical ideas related to nanotechnology, quantum sciences and quantum engineering. The targeted areas of applicability include:

    • Nanotechnology, especially nano-scale electronics;
    • quantum metamaterials;
    • natural quantum systems;
    • qualitative properties of quantum states and observables;
    • harmonic analysis of signals detected in quantum environments;
    • conceptual devices exploiting quantum effects.

    All types of mathematical methods are admissible as long as sufficient evidence is given of relevance to quantum sciences or technologies. The relevance condition is understood broadly and does not hinge on demonstrating immediate utility in a concrete application.

    Why submit and read

    The journal provides the readers with free, instant, and permanent access to all content worldwide; and the authors with critical peer review, extensive promotion of published articles, long-time preservation, language-correction services, no space constraints and quick publication after acceptance.

    The journal is free for both readers and authors - there are no submission or publication fees.

    Thanks to Open Access, all articles are freely available to the academic community worldwide without any restrictions , there are more liberal policies on copyrights (authors retain copyright) and on self-archiving (no embargo periods).


    Type of Publication:

    Researchers and academics interesed in the area of applied mathematics, nanotechnology, and quantum physics

    Submission of Manuscripts

    Instructions for Authors


    Manuscripts should be submitted to the journal via e-mail at mqt.editorial@degruyteropen.com

    Manuscript submitted to this journal should:

    • contain original work - not published elsewhere in any medium (in the whole or in part) by the authors or anyone else and not under consideration for publication in any other medium;
    • focus on the aims and scope of the journal;
    • be clearly and correctly written - should contain all essential features of a scientific publication that is easy to understand for the target audience;
    • written in English - attention to detail of the language will avoid severe misunderstandings which might lead to rejection of the paper;
    • be delivered in electronic format. 

    The journal accepts the following publication formats:

    • Research Articles
    • Communications and Rapid Communications
    • Reviews and Mini-Reviews

    Cover Letter

    It is important that authors include a cover letter with their manuscript. Please explain why you consider your manuscript as suitable for publication in the journal, why will your paper inspire the other members of your field, and how will it drive research forward.

    The letter should contain all important details such as:

    • your full name (submitted by)
    • full title of article and short title
    • full list of authors with affiliations
    • e-mail of the corresponding author
    • contact address, telephone/fax numbers of the corresponding author
    • number of attached files, if there is more than one
    • status: new, reviewed or accepted (with reference ID if reviewed or accepted)

    Cover letter should explicitly state that the manuscript (or one with substantially the same content, by any of the authors) has not been previously published in any language anywhere and that it is not under simultaneous consideration or in press by another journal. If related work has been submitted, then we may require a preprint to be made available. Reviewers will be asked to comment on the overlap between the related submissions.

    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.

    Formatting Requirements

    Our contributors are asked to make sure their submissions comply with rules governing the formatting. Although the journal can provide limited technical support, it is ultimately the responsibility of the author to deliver a properly formatted electronic version of the article.

    We accept submission of text, tables and figures as separate files or as a composite file. For your initial submission, we recommend you upload your entire manuscript, including tables and figures, as a single PDF file. If you are invited to submit a revised manuscript, please provide us with individual files: an editable text and publication-quality figures.

    Manuscripts have to be written in LATEX, AMS-TEX, AMS-LATEX. We do not accept papers in Plain TEX format. If additionally a PDF file is supplied, the peer review process will be speed up. Authors are encouraged to submit the final version of the paper using the De Gruyter Open LATEX template.

    Authors should clearly indicate location of tables and figures in the text if these elements are given separately or at the end of the manuscript. If this information is not provided to the editorial office, we will assume that they should be left at the end of the text.

    For further instructions, please carefully follow the guidelines described in Instructions for Authors.

    Conflict of interest declaration

    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 are encouraged to fill in the ICMJE Conflicts of Interest Form (available here) and send it in the electronic format to the Journal Editor.

    Open Access License

    Authors have to sign an Open Access License that is available on the journal webpage. We encourage the authors to send the signed license along with the manuscript. Please note, that no article will be published unless the Open Access License is signed.
