Frontiers of Physics
, an international refereed journal, aims to summarize the latest and significant progress and highlight frontier achievements, hot topics and cross points in a variety of research fields in physics, and to provide a platform for communication and exchange of ideas among physicists in China and overseas. From 2020 the journal only publishes review and topical review articles on the current topics of high interest to the researchers at the frontiers of physics. The Review provides a comprehensive overview of certain active research areas. The Topical Review provides a snapshot of recent progress in a particular and rapidly developing research field. Moreover, the commissioned Special Topics will be organized to reflect the new and cutting-edge research progress and the wide coverage of a certain research topic.
The following types of papers can be submitted to the journal:
(>20 pages) – The Review gives a comprehensive overview of certain active research areas. There is no strict page limit for each review article, but we expect that it is at least 20 pages long.
(15-20 pages) – The Topical Review provides a snapshot of recent progress in a particular research field. It often deals with a subject which is still developing rapidly so a comprehensive review seems not possible. The typical length of a Topical Review is about 15000 words.
– The Commissioned Special Collection organizes domestic and foreign outstanding research groups to contribute reviews or topical reviews in a specific research field. A Special Collection reflects the new and cutting-edge research progress and the wide coverage of a certain research topic.
