AJP Fizika does not publish manuscripts that have already appeared in print or electronically (including those deposited in preprint archives).
The author must inform the editor of manuscripts submitted, soon to be submitted, or in press at other journals that have a bearing on the manuscript being submitted to AJP Fizika. The Ethical Guidelines for Publication in Journals and Reviews issued by the European Association for Chemical and Molecular Sciences are followed and applied by the editors of AJP Fizika. In particular, authors should reveal all sources of funding for the work presented in the manuscript and should declare any conflict of interest.
If the manuscript is, in fact, a revised/extended version of a manuscript previously rejected by AJP Fizika, the author must inform the editor about the previous submission in the cover letter and explain in detail which changes have been made.
To ensure continuity of contact details, the corresponding author of a manuscript should hold at minimum a postdoctoral research position or be a permanently contracted staff member in industry. Exceptions may be made at the discretion of the Editorial Office.

Journal AJP Fizika more part covers theoretical and experimental questions of modern solid state physics and physical materials science with an emphasis on materials and device applications. This encompasses the technologies of preparation, analysis and description of solid bulk, powders, nanostructures, films, surfaces and interfaces with respect to electronic, magnetic, optical, thermal, structural and morphological properties, as well as design of devices and their characteristics. Current topics include semiconductor electronics and optoelectronics, organic electronics, photovoltaics, sensors, thermoelectrics, non-volatile memory, resistive switching, spintronics, dielectrics, ferroics and superconductors, astrophysics, chemistry physics and others.
Categories of contribution for the journal are Original Papers, Review Articles, and Feature Articles. Original Papers should represent novel research and significant advances in the considered area of physical science.


Authors of all articles will receive acknowledgement of receipt of their manuscript. All contributions are subject to assessment by the editors and/or refereeing.


The text including references should be saved as one Microsoft Word.docx file using the templates provided. Tables should be included in the text files and follow the example laid out in the template. Vector graphic images such as plots, graphs, and line diagrams (including chemical structures) should either be imported into a Word file or saved as JPG files. The name and version of the program used to create the file should be provided. Original files of graphical items prepared using Photoshop may also be included. Bitmap graphic images such as photographs and electron microscope images should be saved as TIFF files; each figure part must have a resolution of at least 300 dpi (1000 pixels wide when the image is printed at a single column width).
Supporting Information in the form of additional figures, experimental details, movies, and so on may accompany a manuscript, and will be published online only. This material will not be edited, so should be error free. Supporting Information pages must be prepared as a single Microsoft Word document and should be uploaded as a separate file with all figures incorporated into the text.


Original Papers are unsolicited, peer-reviewed, reports containing original and previously unpublished work of general interest to the physics science community. The introduction should summarize the reasons for undertaking the work and the main conclusions which can be drawn. The final section should summarize the major conclusions of the paper. The essential findings presented in an Original Paper should be novel and should not have been published previously. All Original Papers will be assessed by at least two independent reviewers. Authors may suggest reviewers. A short abstract and a maximum of six keywords should be given.
Review Articles are granted sufficient space to trace a field and its development comprehensively and well balanced, based on a thorough review of the literature. Typically they may have a size of up to 10 journal pages.
The manuscript should represent a snapshot of most recent progress, the state of research and particularly relevant aspects, with focus on the highlights and possibly open or controversially discussed questions. They are intended to inform an audience not immediately familiar with the specific topic. Original, previously unpublished results may also be included to certain extent.


Authors are requested to take special care with the following points when preparing manuscripts for AJP Fizika:

a) Manuscripts should be typed with double-line spacing (about 60 characters per line and about 26 lines per page; large script; Greek letters in the character font Symbol; special characters must be clearly recognizable; sub- or superscripts, italics, or boldface should be clearly distinguishable); this holds for all parts of the manuscript, including those that will be printed in smaller type, and also for the printed version of an electronic manuscript. Margins of 2 cm should be left free at the top, bottom, and left- and right-hand sides of each page. All pages, including those with the references, tables, and legends, must be numbered consecutively. American-style English spelling should be used throughout the manuscript.

​ b) The title, which should be as succinct as possible. The first letters of all words, except coordinating conjunctions, articles, and prepositions, should be capitalized. No references should be used. Then follows the first name, other initials, and surname of each author, and an asterisk to indicate each corresponding author (further symbols to indicate the affiliation(s) of the author(s) are not required). A dedication line can also be included. Please avoid chemical formulas in the title; they may lead to difficulties when the title is integrated into electronic databases.
The names of all authors according to research group (with academic title and all first names as initials), the complete postal address, and e-mail address(es) of the corresponding author(s) appear after the author byline or, if applicable, after the dedication. For all other authors, only the address of their academic institution or company is required.

c) References to the literature or to footnotes in the text are typed in square brackets as superscripts after any punctuation. These are numbered consecutively and listed (with the numbers in square brackets not as superscripts) at the end of the main body of text. They should not contain comprehensive experimental details or long explanatory text. The names of all authors should be given, starting with the initials of first names followed by the surname (“et al.” should not be used). The penultimate and last names should be separated by a comma (not by “and”). Where possible, composite references should be used; the individual parts should be separated by a semicolon and labeled a), b), c), and not (a), (b), (c). Please double check your references to ensure correct (online) linkage.
Mode of citation: Only a comma is required between the name of the last author and the title of the journal. Journal titles should be abbreviated in accordance with the "Chemical Abstracts Service Source Index" (CASSI; no commas appear in the journal names) and italicized. The journal title should be followed (no comma) by the year of publication (in boldface), comma, volume number (in italics), comma, first page, period (or a semicolon within a composite reference). d) Tables should be provided with a brief legend (use the word “Table” throughout the text unabbreviated) and should only be subdivided by three horizontal lines). For footnotes in Tables, Roman lowercase letters followed by a closing parenthesis are to be used. All tables are to be numbered (Arabic numerals) in the sequence in which they are referred to in the text. Physical data for several compounds should be summarized in a Table; otherwise, a footnote is sufficient.

e) Each figure and scheme should have a caption, and these should be listed together in numerical order after the references. All figures and schemes should be mentioned in the text in numerical order. For peer-review, it is preferred to have the figures and schemes appear as they are mentioned in the text. Use the full word "Figure" in all parts of the manuscript.

​ f) Symbols of physical quantities, but not their units (e.g., T (for temperature, in contrast to T for the unit Tesla), but K as unit; J, but Hz; a, but nm), stereochemical information (cis, E, R, etc.; D), locants (Nmethyl), symmetry groups and space groups (C2v), and prefixes in formulae or compound names such as tBu and tert-butyl must be in italics (but not Latin phrases such as “in situ”), and formula numbers in boldface (Arabic numerals and, if necessary, Roman lowercase letters). Labels of axes are to be separated from their units by a slash or to be given in parantheses: e.g., T/K or T (K); the ordinate should be labeled parallel to the axis.
Vectors must be in bold italic letters and tensors in bold letters (both in the text and in equations). Please distinguish carefully between subscripts, superscripts, and special symbols. Units (e.g. V cm–1, K, Pa etc.) should be written in upright letters (not in italics) with a short space to the number before. Please use SI units throughout. Mathematical functions which are tabulated (e.g. sin, cos, exp, e, etc.) should be given in upright letters (not in italics).

​ g) Equations should be labeled with consecutive number and mentioned by label in the text, for example, “Equation (1).”

h) Physical data should be quoted with decimal points and negative exponents (e.g., 25.8 J K−1 mol−1), and arranged as follows where possible — but in any event in the same order within the manuscript (when measurement conditions remain unchanged, they need only be mentioned once, for instance in the column headings): m.p./b.p. 20 °C; [α]D20 = −13.5 (c = 0.2 in acetone) (a unit has to be given if it is different from deg cm3 g−1 dm−1 for [α] and from g cm−3 for c); 1H NMR (200 MHz, [D8]THF, 25 °C, TMS): δ = 1.3 (q, 3J(H,H) = 8 Hz, 2 H; CH2), 0.9 ppm (t, 3J(H,H) = 8 Hz, 3 H; CH3); IR(Nujol): υ= 1790 cm–1 (C=O); UV– vis (n-hexane): λmax(ε) = 320 (5000), 270 nm (12000); MS (70 eV): m/z (%): 108 (20) [M+], 107 (60) [M+–H], 91 (100) [C7H7+]. Plane angles in products of units can have either ° or deg as the unit.

​ i) Nomenclature, symbols, and units: The rules and recommendations of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC), the International Union of Biochemistry (IUB), and the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) should be adhered to. The Latin names of biological species and genera should be written in italics, with the full name always used when it appears for the first time in the text (e.g., Homo sapiens); the abbreviated form (e.g., H. sapiens) may be used thereafter.
Abbreviations and acronyms should be used sparingly and consistently. Where they first appear in the text, the complete term — apart from the most common acronyms such as NMR, IR, and tBu — should also be given.

​ j) X-ray crystal structure analysis data should be deposited with the CCDC for organic and organometallic compounds and at the FIZ for inorganic compounds prior to manuscript submission. For further details refer to the guidelines for deposition of X-ray data.

The comment

Comments are publications that criticize or correct specific papers of other authors previously published in AJP Fizika. Each Comment should state clearly to which paper it refers. The normal publication schedule is followed.
Authors of potential Comments are encouraged to try to resolve and clarify any disagreement with the authors of the original paper before submission of the Comment. The content in a Comment should be directed to the physics in the paper being criticized; statements on other matters, such as perceived citation omissions, are not generally suitable for publication as Comments, and can usually be addressed most effectively through direct contact with the authors of the original paper. Criticism should be free of polemics and personal or ad hominem remarks.

The reply

When a Comment is deemed suitable for publication by the Editor, the criticized authors will be given the opportunity to write a Reply for possible simultaneous publication. The Reply will also be reviewed and to be suitable for publication should contain new physics material or discussion; it is not appropriate simply to repeat what has already appeared in the literature. If a Reply is not found suitable for publication it may be rejected even if the Comment is accepted.
It is the responsibility of the corresponding author of the original work being criticized (to whom a copy of the Comment is sent as part of the review process) to ensure that all the original authors are aware of the criticism and to ensure that all appropriate individuals are listed as authors of the Reply.

The review process

The paper is first sent to the authors whose work is being criticized. These authors may (a) act as reviewers (usually non-anonymously) and recommend that the paper be accepted, be accepted after revision, or be rejected; (b) submit a Reply for simultaneous consideration, although it is often more productive to wait until the Comment is in a form that we intend to publish; (c) respond following review by an independent referee. If they choose to review the paper they may or may not want to publish a Reply to the Comment. Authors should indicate their intentions to the editors as soon as possible.

After the issues in question have been addressed by the authors of the Comment and the authors of the work being criticized, the Editor will usually consult an independent, anonymous referee. When the Editor is ready to accept a Comment, the authors being criticized will have an opportunity to submit a Reply (or to revise their Reply if one has already been submitted).

After the Comment and Reply have been accepted for publication, the author of the Comment is sent a copy of the Reply for information, but should not alter the text of the Comment in proof. The Comment and Reply are usually (but not always) published in the same issue.
