    Aims and Scope


    Frontiers of Physics, an international refereed journal, aims to summarize the latest and significant progress and highlight frontier achievements, hot topics and cross points in a variety of research fields in physics, and to provide a platform for communication and exchange of ideas among physicists in China and overseas.

    The journal’s review articles provide comprehensive overviews of recent work of certain active research areas; the Colloquium offers a brief introduction and new insights into the latest topics of high interest to the researchers at the frontiers of physics; and the research articles are linked to the primary research on current topics in nearly all main branches of physics, such as Quantum mechanics and quantum information; Gravitation, cosmology, and astrophysics; Elementary particles and fields; Nuclear physics; Atomic, molecular, and optical physics; Statistical and nonlinear physics; Plasma physics and accelerator physics; Condensed matter physics; Nanostructures and functional materials; and Soft matter, biological physics, and interdisciplinary physics.

    Authors may self-archive the Author's accepted manuscript of their articles on their own websites. Authors may also deposit this version of the article in any repository, provided it is only made publicly available 12 months after official publication or later. He/she may not use the publisher's version (the final article), which is posted on SpringerLink and other Springer websites, for the purpose of self-archiving or deposit. Furthermore, the Author may only post his/her version provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication and a link is inserted to the published article on Springer's website. The link must be accompanied by the following text: "The final publication is available at link.springer.com".

    Prior versions of the article published on non-commercial pre-print servers like arXiv.org can remain on these servers and/or can be updated with Author's accepted version. The final published version (in pdf or html/xml format) cannot be used for this purpose. Acknowledgement needs to be given to the final publication and a link must be inserted to the published article on Springer's website, accompanied by the text "The final publication is available at link.springer.com". Author retains the right to use his/her article for his/her further scientific career by including the final published journal article in other publications such as dissertations and postdoctoral qualifications provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication.

    Author is requested to use the appropriate DOI for the article. Articles disseminated via link.springer.com are indexed, abstracted and referenced by many abstracting and information services, bibliographic networks, subscription agencies, library networks, and consortia.
