Author Guidelines

Manuscripts intended for publication in the Journal of Physical Agents should be written in English and sent through this site. Papers must use the LaTeX or the corresponding Word template. JoPhA publishes scientific papers that should reflect original, previously unplubished work, and not simultaneously under consideration for publication elsewhere. The manuscript, if accepted, will be disseminated to the readers. It is the responsability of the authors to obtain written permission of the material used in the article previously published. Manuscripts should be submitted electronically in a double-column format using the JoPhA style file. Articles will be limited to 15 pages. Longer papers will be rejected without review.
