Typographically distinguish matrices, operators, and other general quantities only to avoid confusion; in such cases use boldface or a caret. The Physical Review Style and Notation Guide includes further details on notations and mathematical expressions, along with exceptions to these conventions.
Some include:. Physical Review follows the recommendations of the S. Tables are numbered with roman numerals in the order in which they appear in text. Give each table a caption that explains the contents of the table and that includes definition of symbols. Keep column headings simple and include units in these headings. Very simple and brief tabular material may appear in the text without a number or caption.
Use a single horizontal rule to separate the column headings from the entries in the table. Use horizontal space within the body of the table to separate broad groups of entries. Extra vertical space may be used between columns.
Avoid vertical rules in tables. Use lower-case roman letters for footnotes placed at the bottom of a table. If space allows, long data tables can be included directly in the manuscript, rather than in the Supplemental Material. This decision is influenced by whether readers can accurately obtain the data from a figure and by how many readers are likely to use the numbers. If experimental results are likely to be used as reference values by other authors, publication of the numbers is desirable.
Extensive datasets may be deposited as Supplemental Material. If additional numerical data are available, include a statement regarding the availability of the data at the end of the manuscript, before the Acknowledgments. The statement should cite a reference that provides the information needed to access the data e.
See the Physical Review Style and Notation Guide for complete information regarding the proper form for data citations. Figures should have a width of a 8. Use a width of 1. Authors are required to submit all figures electronically for production. Preferred formats are. Number figures in the order in which they are referred to in the text. Give each figure a caption that clearly summarizes the contents of the figure. Define figure symbols and curves either in a legend in the figure itself or in the caption.
Label subfigures a , b , etc. If possible, submit figures with multiple panels as one file. Format figures such that their content and details are readable when they are sized for the journal page. Make the height of the smallest capital letters and numerals at least 2 mm and make the diameter of each data point at least 1 mm.
Avoid small open symbols, shading, and cross-hatching in figures. Label figure axes with the quantities plotted and place units in parentheses after the quantity. Keep the style of figures and text consistent. Submit photographic images either grayscale or color as high-resolution. Avoid submitting prescreened scanned images of photographic material as they may not have sufficient resolution.
If scanned images have to be used, make scans with as high a resolution as possible preferably dpi or higher and then scale the figure to its final size. Figures should accurately present the scientific results. If adjustments to images, such as changing its brightness, are made, state the adjustment in the figure caption. For color-online-only figures, a. Ensure color online figures are intelligible in grey scale.
To achieve this goal, use colors that have clearly distinguished grey-scale values. To assist in differentiating colored curves, use different line styles dashed, solid, etc. If colored figures are desired in the print version of the journal, as in the online version, clearly indicate which figures are intended to be printed in color when the manuscript is submitted. Information about our pricing and payment policy for printed color figures is available via Color Figures in the Print Journal.
In order to reproduce previously published figures, tables, etc. Authors can demonstrate they have permission to reproduce the material by sending a written agreement from the publisher and author of the originally published work. If the original journal is published by APS, only a written agreement from the original author is required. The Physical Review Style and Notation Guide includes further details on formatting figures and tables. Submit manuscripts via our Submissions server. The Submissions server is designed to enable fast and easy uploading of the manuscript and to enable entering of information required for the peer-review process.
Receipt of a submission during business hours is acknowledged by email within one business day. Specify the author to whom correspondence should be addressed, and give all available contact information for this individual postal and email addresses, phone number. If an important subject of the manuscript is not classifiable by a PhySH concept, please give an appropriate keyword or phrase, and indicate approximately where in the scheme this topic would be best placed. Feedback on the PhySH scheme is welcomed.
Upload the main body of the manuscript including figures, tables, captions, etc. Also send a cover letter, auxiliary files and figures, and Supplemental Material via the Submissions server. Copies of the manuscript sent by regular mail are not processed. While the agreement takes effect only when the manuscript is accepted for publication in a Physical Review journal, the prompt completion of this process prevents unnecessary processing delays. Accepted manuscripts are not forwarded to production until the journal is in receipt of the agreement.
The Editorial Policies and Practices include further details on submission policies. When resubmitting a manuscript, please include a summary of changes made and a concise, point-by-point response to all recommendations and criticisms. The modified manuscript and figures can be uploaded using the interactive resubmission forms available on our Submissions server. These forms should also be used when a manuscript previously submitted to one Physical Review journal is transferred to another.
Send the complete text file if there have been any changes. For any resubmission, please state whether or not the figures have been modified, and supply new electronic figures if there have been changes. It is only necessary to resend figure files when the previous versions are no longer valid. Please update any other information e.
The Editorial Policies and Practices include further details on resubmission policies. Information regarding the status of a manuscript under consideration by the Physical Review journals is available on the following webpage. If clarification is needed, send an email message to the journal with the following subject line: Status, Manuscript ID, Corresponding Author Name. For accepted papers, information about the production status is available via a similar service maintained by the production vendor.
A link to this service is provided on the manuscript status page. The following information provides details regarding the review process for manuscripts submitted to the Physical Review journals. For more information on our standard peer-review practices, please consult the Editorial Policies and Practices.
Peer Review : Peer review by independent, anonymous referees is one of the most important reasons for the existence of a scientific journal. Journal readers benefit since at least one independent expert has judged that the manuscript is new and interesting, that it contributes to the advancement of the field, and that it is without apparent flaws. Of course, it is impossible for either the journal or the referees to guarantee the correctness or the originality of the research.
Authors benefit from peer review via feedback on the research and the style of presentation. Note that the review policies and procedures vary by journal. The time authors take to respond to referee comments and revise the manuscript also plays a role in the review timeline. Referee Selection : Editors choose one or more referees from a common database of thousands of potential referees.
Suggesting Referees : Authors are encouraged to suggest the names of potential referees. Referee suggestions can be added during the manuscript submission process on the Editorial Info page. The editors consider the suggestions, but the suggested referees are not necessarily chosen. Authors should avoid listing previous coauthors and collaborators. Excluding Referees : Authors can request that certain referees are not contacted.
The names of these referees can be added during the manuscript submission process on the Editorial Info page. In the text box, provide the names of a few specific people not names of research groups, collaborations, or institutions and include a brief explanation of why you are making the request. Although such requests are usually honored it is customary to give authors whose work is criticized in a manuscript an opportunity to respond to the criticism.
Number of Referees : The number of referees contacted to review a manuscript varies by journal. Typically, editors choose one or two referees to initially review a manuscript. In some cases, the editors may contact more than two referees, for example to gain input from referees with differing expertise or if there is uncertainty about the availability of a particular expert. If a referee is tardy, the editors may contact an additional referee, and if the tardy referee then responds, we may receive more anonymous reports than usual.
If an impasse is reached between the authors and referees, the editors may consult another referee in an effort to close the review process. Rejection without Review : Not all manuscripts are sent for review. Editors often reject manuscripts that they judge to be clearly unsuitable for the journal. However, no manuscript is accepted for publication without review by external referees. Rounds of Review : Editors typically reach a final decision on whether to publish a manuscript after one or two rounds of review.
Responding to Referee Reports : Authors should read referee reports carefully and dispassionately and approach the reports with an open mind. What may at first seem like a devastating blow is perhaps a request for more information or for a more detailed explanation. At other times the referee may indeed have found a fatal flaw in the research or logic.
Put yourself in the position of a reader, which is exactly the position of the referee. Is the manuscript well written? Is the presentation clear, unambiguous, and logical? Respond to all referee comments, suggestions, and criticisms. When writing your response, please formulate it in gender-neutral terms.
Explain which changes have been made and state your position on points of disagreement.. If your paper is accepted for publication in a Physical Review journal, please consider submitting a summary of the paper. Send the plain text summary no LaTeX or Word documents to author-summaries aps. When emailing the summary, consider sending one or a few low-resolution image files that illustrate the results. These papers are judged to be particularly important, interesting, or well written, and are prominently displayed on the journal web pages.
Hints for Writing a Good Summary : Be brief. Shorter summaries are often better as they include fewer details that tend to distract from the main points. Think of the way a newspaper article is written, with the most important points at the top. Aim the summary at non-scientists and not physicists. Using this style helps those reading the summary to visualize how the topic could be presented to a non-scientific audience. Avoid or define any jargon. State why the result is important in direct terms, even if it seems obvious.
Clearly distinguish between what is new in the paper and what is merely background information. The press office may want to mention the paper in their own publications or may want to inform local media. The email addresses of institutional press offices are searchable at Newswise. Color Figures Charges : Color illustrations in the print journal should be used only when there is a clear need.
The additional costs for printing illustrations are borne in full by authors and their institutions. Authors are reminded that Color Figures Online Only is a service provided in Physical Review journals without charge to authors. Authors desiring color in print, who are willing and able to pay the associated charges, should indicate their request, preferably upon submission, and indicate which figures are intended for color in print.
Full payment of the color charges is required before the article is sent to production. If payment is not received within 21 working days, the article is sent to production with the figures designated as color online only, provided those figures have been properly prepared as individual electronic files color online only results in no charges to the author.
If authors require more time to pay the charges, the article will be held until the anticipated payment date. Any questions or concerns regarding color in print may be directed to payments aps. For those who require invoices to make payment, the system offers this option as well.
Please note that reprints are created and mailed after the journal issue has been printed. The Physical Review family offers some of the most-trusted, most-read, most-cited, and fastest-growing fully open access and hybrid journals in physics and related areas of research.
