Guide for Authors

 

JNMP publishes original research papers in the fields of mathematics and physics. JNMP publishes letters (short notes), original research articles and review articles. Only papers that fall within the aims and scope of JNMP will be considered for publication. For a more precise description of the aims and scope, please click here.

High quality research papers are considered for publication if they have not been published previously and are not under consideration elsewhere. Authors are reminded that papers are published to be read and should compose their works with as wide audience in mind as is consistent with the maintenance of scientific quality.

Copyright
JNMP is co-published with Taylor and Francis and we apply the T&F copyright policy regarding the published papers. Once the paper is ready for publication, T&F requires a copyright transfer. A copyright license form will be sent to you when you receive the proofs of your paper that is to be published. Please do not send the filled out license form to us by post, but send it back by email only.

For more information on T&F's copyright policy, please refer to this page.

Editorial policy
After a first check whether the paper is within the JNMP aims and scope and of reasonable scientific quality, all papers are reviewed by at least one external referee and by the Editorial Board. The Editorial Board review is done via a password-protected internet page (the Editors' Page) for a period of one month and takes place before the referee(s) has(have) been consulted. All papers are reviewed on the Editors' Page and if the Editors reject a paper during this period, then it is not further reviewed by external referees. The Editor-in-chief takes the final decision on the acceptance of a reviewed paper.

Based on their review reports a final assessment will be made by the editor-in-chief. Three outcomes are possible:

  • Accepted: the paper is accepted for publication, no changes are needed;
  • Revision requested: the authors are requsted to revise their original submission according to the instructions from the editor-in-chief and the referee(s). The revised paper will then be further reviewed by the referee(s) and the editorial board;
  • Rejected: the paper is rejected, the author receives a full report on the reasons why.

Procedure and time line
After submission the corresponding author receives a confirmation of reception within 1 week. The reviewing of a paper takes in average about 10 weeks, but this depends strongly on the subject and the details of the article. Our main policy is not to compromise on quality, so in some cases the reviewing time can be longer. Once a paper has been  accepted for publication it will be elaborated by our copy-editor, so that it is suitable for on-line publication at the JNMP website. Before its publication, the galley proofs of the paper will be sent to the corresponding author for proofreading.

Publication policy and Open Access
Papers will be prepared for on-line publication on the JNMP website as soon as they have been accepted. From then on they will be available in PDF to the JNMP subscribers from the website of our publishing partner Taylor & Francis (http://www.tandfonline.com/loi/tnmp20). Authors will receive a copy of the final file as published in JNMP, incl. JNMP formatting and page numbers.

It is also possible to publish your paper in Open Access mode. For 2012 and 2013 a special publication fee of 1000 USD will be charged. For more details, please check here.

Code of Ethics, malpractice and conduct
The publication of an article in a peer-reviewed journal or conference proceedings is an essential building block in the development of a coherent and respected network of knowledge. It is a direct reflection of the quality of the work of the authors and the institutions that support them. Peer-reviewed articles support and embody the scientific method. It is therefore important to agree upon standards of expected ethical behavior for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer, the publisher and the society of society-owned or sponsored journals.
