Aims and scope
St. Petersburg Polytechnical University Journal: Physics and Mathematics is an open-access online-only journal that covers a wide array of subjects in physical and mathematical sciences, including, but not limited to, condensed matter physics, atom physics, optics, astrophysics, nuclear physics, theoretical physics, biophysics, mechanics and mathematical analysis. In view of the journal's extensive scope of topics, the authors should strive to compose their papers in a language that would be understandable to specialists in various areas of expertise. The journal only accepts previously unpublished papers that are not considered for publication elsewhere; submitted papers should be scientifically and technically accurate.The further types of papers are welcome:
- original research articles
- review papers
- conference reports
The SPbPhysMathJ comes out 4 times a year. Upon submission, all papers are subject to single-blind peer review. The publication is free of charge; all expenses are covered by the journal. The journal is committed to the publication ethics. The editors, reviewers and authors are supposed to follow the ethical guidelines.
Affiliated with the Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University, a globally competitive research and education center with strong academic traditions participating in major international collaborations, the journal serves as a platform for delivering the most up-to-date results of these collaborations to scientists worldwide. Working in close contact with the researchers of the Polytechnic University, the journal welcomes all international submissions.
The journal draws on the vast expertise of its referees, who are internationally acclaimed scholars leading their own research teams, to maintain high standards of academic peer review. Encouraging the authors to combine approaches from physical and mathematical sciences, the journal provides a unique forum for exchange and dissemination of new knowledge.
The journal is indexed by the following databases:
- Web of Science (Emerging Sources Citation Index)
