Open Physics is a peer-reviewed, open access, electronic journal devoted to the publication of fundamental research results in all fields of physics. The journal provides the readers with free, instant, and permanent access to all content worldwide; and the authors with extensive promotion of published articles, long-time preservation, language-correction services, no space constraints and immediate publication.
Open Physics is listed inter alia by Clarivate Analytics (formerly Thomson Reuters) - Current Contents/Physical, Chemical and Earth Sciences, JCR and SCIE. Our standard policy requires each paper to be reviewed by at least two Referees and the peer-review process is single-blind.

Special / Topical Issues:

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

  • Acoustics
  • 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 and read

Open Physics is a premier source of a high quality research. All published articles are made freely and permanently accessible online.

Authors benefit from fair and constructive peer review, language-correction services and extensive promotion of each published article.
The journal uses continuous publication model - accepted manuscripts are published quickly after the acceptance.
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).
The journal is archived in Portico.

INSTRUCTION FOR AUTHORS
All submissions must be made via online submission system Editorial Manager: http://www.editorialmanager.com/openphys.

For detailed information, please see Instruction for authors

In case of any technical problems, please contact the Managing Editor of Open Physics: Paulina Leśna-Szreter PhD, Paulina.Lesna-Szreter@degruyter.com

EDITORIAL POLICY
Unpublished material: Submission of a manuscript implies that the work described is not copyrighted, published or submitted elsewhere, except in abstract form. The corresponding author should ensure that all authors approve the manuscript before its submission.
Ethical conduct of research: The authors must describe and confirm safeguards to meet ethical standards when applicable. See Editorial Policy for details.
Conflict of interest: When authors submit a manuscript, they are responsible for recognizing and disclosing financial and/or other conflicts of interest that might bias their work and/or could inappropriately influence his/her judgment. If no specified acknowledgement is given, the Editors assume that no conflict of interest exists. Authors are encouraged to fill in the ICMJE Conflicts of Interest Form (available here) and send it in the electronic format to the Managing Editor.
Copyright: All authors retain copyright, unless – due to their local circumstances – their work is not copyrighted. The non-commercial use of each article will be governed by the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs license. The corresponding author grants the journal exclusive license for commercial use of the article, by signing the Open Access License. Scanned copy of license should be sent to the journal, as soon as possible.
Authorship: Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. All those who have made significant contributions should be listed as co-authors. Where there are others who have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project, they should be named in an Acknowledgement section. The corresponding author should ensure that all appropriate co-authors (according to the above definition) and no inappropriate co-authors are included in the author list of the manuscript, and that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the paper and have agreed to its submission for publication.
Peer Review process: The Editors reserve the right to decline the submitted manuscript without review, if the studies reported are not sufficiently novel or important to merit publication in the journal. Manuscripts deemed unsuitable (insufficient originality or of limited interest to the target audience) are returned to the author(s) without review. The Editor seeks advice from experts in the appropriate field. Research articles and communications are refereed by a minimum of two reviewers, review papers by at least three. Authors are requested to suggest persons competent to review their manuscript. However, please note that this will be treated only as a suggestion, and the final selection of reviewers is exclusively the Editor's decision. The final decision of acceptance in made by Managing Editor or, in case of conflict, by the Editor-in-Chief.
Scientific Misconduct: This journal publishes only original manuscripts that are not also published or going to be published elsewhere. Multiple submissions/publications, or redundant publications (re-packaging in different words of data already published by the same authors) will be rejected. If they are detected only after publication, the journal reserves the right to publish a Retraction Note. In each particular case Editors will follow COPE's Code of Conduct and implement its advice.
