The academic journal Physics of Wave Phenomena presents reviews, research papers, letters, and brief communications elucidating recent theoretical and experimental achievements in modern physics of oscillations and waves. Coverage includes a variety of applications in fundamental areas of phenomenology and technology. The journal provides a broad interdisciplinary forum for active researchers in these related fields, and is of particular interest to students, scientists, and working engineers.

Physics of Wave Phenomena was published first in 1993 as an international topical supplement to the well-known Bulletin of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Physics. Since 2003 the journal is published under the current title, which best reflects its scope.

PEER REVIEW

Physics of Wave Phenomena is a peer reviewed journal. We use a single blind peer review format. Our team of reviewers includes over 20 experts. The average period from submission to first decision in 2018 was 14 days, and that from first decision to acceptance was 14 days. The rejection rate for submitted manuscripts in 2018 was 50%. The final decision on the acceptance of an article for publication is made by the Editorial Board.

Any invited reviewer who feels unqualified or unable to review the manuscript due to the conflict of interests should promptly notify the editors and decline the invitation. Reviewers should formulate their statements clearly in a sound and reasoned way so that authors can use reviewer’s arguments to improve the manuscript. Personal criticism of the authors must be avoided. Reviewers should indicate in a review (i) any relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors, (ii) anything that has been reported in previous publications and not given appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.
