Due to the Russian military invasion of Ukraine, the review process has become much longer. Many reviewers are currently defending our country from the occupiers. This causes inconvenience to many authors. But Ukraine will win and the PCSS Journal will work at full capacity again and will have a higher impact!

Accordingly, the Journal “Physics and Chemistry of Solid State” temporarily does not accept manuscripts from Russian-affiliated authors, as research results in physics or chemistry can often have a dual purpose and be used for defense purposes (for russia it should be understood as "promoting international terrorism").

These restrictions are temporary and will be lifted immediately after the surrender of the Russian Federation, the liberation of all occupied territories, the full payment of all repatriations and the unconditional creation of a demilitarized zone on territory of RF.

We always try to make science open to all and strive to develop constructive cooperation!

Since 2017, the journal "Physics and Chemistry of Solid State" published simultaneously in both versions: 
1) Ukrainian submission with English abstract (ISSN 1729-4428 (Print), ISSN 2309-8589 (Online); 
2) English submission (translated Ukrainian version) with Ukrainian abstract (ISSN 2309-8589 (Online); 
(The both versions will be in open access on the journal’s web-site). 
The editorial board, accordingly, requests to submit papers in Ukrainian and a copy in English.

For foreign authors, the Ukrainian version of submission is no necessary

The editorial board aims to present as much as possible your original scientific results among the world scientific community through their dissemination in leading international science and technology databases.
