Submission Preparation ChecklistAs part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
- The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
- The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
- Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
- The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
- The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.
This section includes articles in the field of Condensed Matter & Applied Physics.

What is copyright?
Copyright protection applies automatically to any original work as soon as it is written down or put into permanent or fixed form. For example, copyright protects pictures, photos, figures, text, graphs, and videos. There does not need to be a © symbol next to the work for it to be protected by copyright.
Copyright generally lasts for 70 years after the death of the author of the work (or the last remaining co-author’s death). Therefore, just because the work is old, does not mean that it is not protected by copyright.
During the submission process, authors are asked to complete a copyright form. JCM requires a copyright form to be signed by all author. The copyright form must be filled in correctly, signed, dated and submitted to JCM before an article can be published.
