About the Journal

Focus and Scope

The  Journal of Condensed Matter (JCM) is a peer-reviewed journal that welcomes papers on all aspects of Condensed Matter Physics. Topics may include, but are not limited to: Nano Materials, Phase Transition, Semiconductor & Dielectric Material, Photonic materials & Plasmonics, Single Crystals & Noval Materials, Organic, Inorganic & Biomaterials, Glasses & Ceramics, Composites, Surface, Interface & Thin Films, Electronic Structure & Phonons, Superconductivity, Magnetism & Spintronics, Structural-dynamical and mechanical properties, Computational methods and Applied Physics. Manuscripts can be submitted only in English. 

Manuscript Categories

Manuscripts may take any of the following forms: 

Research Papers: Both quantitative and qualitative research papers are encouraged. Such reports describe the design and methodology, and present the results of a study of an innovation or the application of theory to the facilitation of learning with technology. They typically contain a statement of problem or description of the issue to be explored, a review of the research literature, a section describing research methodology, the results of the study, and implications for future research. 

Literature Reviews: Literature reviews can be in the form either of a qualitative or a quantitative summary (i.e., meta-analysis). Reviews explore the research literature on a topic in order to determine major issues of importance for future research, to understand these issues in relation to theory and application, to find the frontier of research on a problem, to relate a problem to existing theory, or to put a conceptualized problem in the context of previous research. 

Special requirements

Authors of all articles are required upon submission to disclose any potential conflict of interest (e.g. employment, consulting fees, industrial research contracts, stock ownership, equity interests, patent-licensing arrangements, honoraria, etc) in their comment to editor.

Peer review

Journal of Condensed Matter operates a single-anonymous peer review process, in which authors remain anonymous to the reviewers throughout the review process.
