Article Processing Charges and Waivers
A full waiver scheme is in place for all Thematic Series. To receive this, please request a waiver during submission and state the reason for the request as "submitting to a Thematic Series”. If you would like to request a waiver for a regular submission, please contact the Editor-in-Chief. For more information on Article Processing Charges and waivers, please see here.
Open thematic series
Thematic Series submissions are eligible for a waiver, please request this during submission and state the reason for the request as "submitting to a Thematic Series".
Deadline for submissions: 1st January, 2016
Submissions are invited to a Thematic Series which is dedicated to all aspects of space-based quantum technologies from fundamental physics to quantum communication protocols including proposals for new space-based quantum experiments as well as terrestrial experimental tests of new quantum technologies for space deployment.
EPJ is a rapidly growing series of internationally reputed, peer-reviewed journals that are indexed in all major citation databases. The editorial boards of the EPJ are composed of leading specialists in their respective fields and have made it their mission to uphold the highest standards of scientific quality in the journals. EPJ started in the late 1990s as a merger and co-publication of Zeitschrift für Physik (Springer), Journal de Physique (EDP Sciences) and Il Nuovo Cimento (Società Italiana di Fisica) covering all aspects of the pure and applied physical sciences. Its spectrum has since expanded to encompass many interdisciplinary topics, including complexity and data sciences.
SpringerOpen is Springer’s new suite of open access journals which will cover all disciplines. SpringerOpen journals are fully and immediately open access and will publish articles under the Creative Commons Attribution license. This makes it easy for authors to fully comply with open access mandates and retain copyright. SpringerOpen journals combine open access and our expertise in delivering high-quality and rapid publications, from online submission systems and in-depth peer review to an efficient, author-friendly production process.
Aims & scope
Driven by advances in technology and experimental capability, the last decade has seen the emergence of quantum technology: a new praxis for controlling the quantum world. It is now possible to engineer complex, multi-component systems that merge the once distinct fields of quantum optics and condensed matter physics.
EPJ Quantum Technology will cover theoretical and experimental advances in subjects including but not limited to the following:
- Quantum measurement, metrology and lithography
- Quantum complex systems, networks and cellular automata
- Quantum electromechanical systems
- Quantum optomechanical systems
- Quantum machines, engineering and nanorobotics
- Quantum control theory
- Quantum information, communication and computation
- Quantum thermodynamics
- Quantum metamaterials
- The effect of Casimir forces on micro- and nano-electromechanical systems
- Quantum biology
- Quantum sensing
- Hybrid quantum systems
- Quantum simulations
The journal will NOT consider the following topics:
- Foundations of quantum mechanics
- Alternative approaches to, new structures for or different interpretations of QM (e.g. Bohmian Mechanics)
- Non-technical applications such as "quantum consciousness", "quantum psychology" , "quantum economics" etc.
