Aims and scope

The Journal of the Korean Physical Society (JKPS) is an international journal, published semi-monthly by the Korean Physical Society (KPS). Its aim is to dig out and circulate new and original research results in all fields of fundamental, applied, and interdisciplinary physics in a variety of different article types, including Research Articles, Letters, Review Articles, and Comments & Replies. Together with Regular Issues, JKPS publishes Proceedings of international conferences occasionally through the peer-review process.

The standard of the peer-review for proceedings is the same as for regular issues. Besides them, JKPS publishes Topical Reviews, which provide a comprehensive and extensive summary of recent research results in physics and are of current interest to a broader audience. A topical review should aim to summarize the pertinent experimental, theoretical, and computational results. Topical Reviews may be published by invitation or by collaboration with KPS Divisions. All Topical Reviews are subject to peer-review.

The range of topics in JKPS is extensive including
• General, Mathematical, and Statistical Physics
• Particles and Nuclei
• Atoms, Molecules, and Optics
• Classical Mechanics of Discrete Systems
• Fluids, Plasms, and Phenomenology
• Condensed Matter Physics
• Cross-Disciplinary Physics and Related Areas of Science and Technology
• Geophysics and Astrophysics
