Aims and Scope

The International Journal of Engineering and Applied Physics (IJEAP) is an international journal for the advancement and dissemination of knowledge in all fields of engineering and applied physics.

IJEAP publishes articles that significantly contribute to the advancements in the applications of engineering and physical principles as well as in the understanding of physics in view of particular applications in mind. Subjects covered by IJEAP include the following fields:

  • Engineering
  • Physics
  • Mathematics
  • Materials science
  • Computer science
  • Semiconductors, dielectrics, and organic materials
  • Photonics, quantum electronics, optics, and spectroscopy
  • Spintronics, superconductivity, and strongly correlated materials
  • Device physics including quantum information processing
  • Physics-based circuits and systems
  • Nanoscale science and technology
  • Crystal growth, surfaces, interfaces, thin films, and bulk materials
  • Plasmas, applied atomic and molecular physics, and applied nuclear physics
  • Device processing, fabrication and measurement technologies, and instrumentation
  • Cross-disciplinary areas such as bioelectronics/photonics, biosensing, environmental/energy technologies, and MEMS

Article types

IJEAP welcomes submissions of the following article types for publication in Regular Issues:

  • Regular Paper. Regular Papers are original papers with comprehensive, detailed descriptions of the research work, presenting a fully developed discussion on the results obtained in relevant fields of engineering and applied physics. They must provide sufficient and self-contained information to ensure the repeatability of experiments and analyses by readers.
    There is no length limit.
  • Rapid Communication. Rapid Communications are concise papers devoted to the rapid publication of new research works expected to attract the attention of, and have a beneficial impact on, researchers working in relevant fields of engineering and applied physics. An abstract of no more than 150 words should be provided and appropriate references should be listed. Other than this, Rapid Communications should not be divided into sections.
    The maximum length is four printed pages, including tables and figures (about 4,000 words), however the reference list may extend to a fifth page.
  • Brief Note. Brief Notes are short reports on significant improvements in instrumentation, fabrication processes, measurement techniques, and theoretical analyses, and also serve as an archive of knowledge useful for applied physics, such as important material parameters. The research topic described must be of interest to researchers working in applied physics. An abstract of no more than 100 words should be provided and appropriate references should be listed. Other than this, Brief Notes should not be divided into sections.
    The maximum length is three printed pages, including tables and figures (about 3,000 words), however the reference list may extend to a fourth page.

IJEAP also publishes the following invited only article types:

  • Invited Review. Invited Reviews are comprehensive reports of the background and state-of-the-art research on a specific field in engineering and applied physics. It should provide overviews of the field to non-specialists and aim to broaden the scope of applied physics.
  • Special Review. Special Reviews are to be written by special researchers providing the background of their researches.

Other than regular issues, IJEAP publishes supplementary Special Issues based on international conferences. Contributions to the Special Issues are invited by Guest Editors and are subject to the same peer-review standards as articles published in Regular Issues of IJEAP.
