Guidelines for Author


Publication ethics

Fabrication and falsification

The authors of submitted manuscripts or published articles that are found to have fabricated or falsified the results, including the manipulation of images, may incur sanctions, and published articles may be retracted.


Taking the ideas and work of other scientists without giving them credit is unfair and dishonest. Copying even one sentence from someone else’s manuscript, or even one of your own that has previously been published, without proper citation is considered plagiarism — use your own words instead. Authors must not use the words, figures, or ideas of others without attribution. All sources must be cited at the point they are used, and reuse of wording must be limited and be attributed or quoted in the text. Journal of Nano- and Electronic Physics uses to detect submissions that overlap with published and submitted manuscripts. Manuscripts that are found to have been plagiarized from a manuscript by other authors, whether published or unpublished, will be rejected and the authors may incur sanctions. Any published articles may need to be corrected or retracted.

Multiple submissions

Journal of Nano- and Electronic Physics publishes papers, which have not been previously published and are not submitted for publication elsewhere, and which contain the original results of the experimental and theoretical investigations in the field of condensed matter physics, physical electronics, and investigations aimed at the development of mathematical methods of the processes and phenomena description in the specified fields as well.

Citation manipulation

Authors whose submitted manuscripts are found to include citations whose primary purpose is to increase the number of citations to a given author’s work, or to articles published in a particular journal, may incur sanctions. Editors and reviewers must not ask authors to include references merely to increase citations to their own or an associate’s work, to the journal, or to another journal they are associated with.

Authorship and acknowledgments

All listed authors must have made a significant scientific contribution to the research in the manuscript, approved its claims, and agreed to be an author. It is important to list everyone who made a significant scientific contribution. Anyone who contributed to the research or manuscript preparation, but is not an author, should be acknowledged with their permission.

Conflicts of interest

Conflicts of interest do not always stop work from being published or prevent someone from being involved in the review process. However, they must be declared. A clear declaration of all possible conflicts – whether they actually had an influence or not – allows others to make informed decisions about the work and its review process. If conflicts of interest are found after publication, this may be embarrassing for the authors, the Editor and the journal. It may be necessary to publish a corrigendum or reassess the review process.

Journal research area

  • physical properties of film and nanostructured materials;
  • physics of nano-sized objects;
  • development of experimental research methods in condensed matter physics;
  • description methods of dynamical systems and nonequilibrium processes;
  • generation and propagation of electromagnetic and optical radiation;

  • applied aspects of nano- and electronic physics.

Papers should be submitted in English. No more than 40 days later, the authors receive an e-mail with a decision on the article.

Journal of Nano- and Electronic Physics is the peer-reviewed journal. In case of non-compliance of the manuscript with the following requirements, the manuscript is rejected or returned to the authors for revision.

General Requirements to the Article's Manuscript

  1. Text of the manuscript should be logically bracketed, clearly expressed, and have a corresponding structure. Scientific style is required. Introduction should be brief but characterize the current state of a problem and motivate the relevance of the author's search. Obtained results and investigation methods should be explained and analyzed in the main sections of the manuscript. All numerical data should be presented in conventional units. Conclusions should be sound and contain the comparison of the obtained results with equivalents, recommendations about their applications, etc.
  2. Abstract and conclusions should not duplicate each other.
  3. Manuscript size: а) up to 15 pages for review articles (references up to 40 with DOI index); b) up to 10 pages for problematic articles (references up to 25 with DOI index); b) up to 4-5 pages for research notes (references up to 20 with DOI index); c) up to 3 pages for short communication (10-15 references with DOI index).
  4. Abstract size - 1800 symbols with spaces. If at least one of the authors is published on behalf of a university or a scientific laboratory of Ukraine, please, add the abstract in Ukrainian at the end of the text.
  5. Manuscript should contain in defined field the index(es) by the Physics and Astronomy Classification Scheme (PACS) that specifies the object of investigation. The full list of PACS numbers is accessible for download in the Journal web site.

Technical requirements for the manuscript text

The manuscript should be typed using the word processor MS Word, the part of the office suite MS Office any version. For the manuscript preparation use the Journal template and follow all the requirements. MS Word template is accessible for download on the Journal web-site (download the template). All the necessary formatting is embedded in the template. Manuscript's text should be typed instead of text, given in the template as an example. Any consultation about the template may be got if send the corresponding inquiry to the Journal e-mail address. For simplification of the Journal issue preparation the submitted manuscripts should be designed using the above-mentioned template only. Figures should be clear, contrasting, high quality (resolution at least 300 dpi). To design formulas preferable to use the equation editor "MathType".
