Introduction for Authors

ISS2013 papers will be published in an online issue of Physics Procedia (Elsevier) to be published in June 2014 and in a special issue of Physica C (Elsevier) which will be published in October 2014.
All papers accepted will be indexed by Science Direct, EI Compendex, and Scopus.

Only papers presented at the symposium will be considered for publication. All the authors are requested to submit papers to Physics Procedia from Oct. 25 to Nov. 13, 2013.
In addition all the authors are requested to submit a copy of receipt e-mail (auto reply form when you submit the paper online) and Ticket for Submission of Manuscripts (a stub of the name card) at Editorial Office (on site). The name of the ticket should be one of coauthors. There must be a separate registered author for each paper submitted.

Papers will undergo a strict peer review process by reviewers selected by the Program Committee. Only papers containing critical results of the highest quality will be accepted for publication. Manuscripts should not have been previously submitted, accepted, or published elsewhere. They are not allowed to contain copyrighted materials published elsewhere. The length of the articles is limited to 4 pages in camera ready format.

About 50 papers will be selected by the Program Committee on the basis of the submitted manuscrpts for submission to Physica C after revision as full papers. The papers will be strictly reviewed as ordinary papers in Physica C.
The authors recommended to submit papers to Physica C will be contacted personally by the Editorial Office with directions about the preparation and online submission of their papers via Elsevier’s Editorial System (EES). Manuscript
s can be submitted from Dec.11, 2013; the submission deadline is Jan. 17, 2014. The length of the articles is limited to 6 printed pages.
