The European Physical Journal Special Topics
To submit a formal proposal for EPJ ST (edited volumes)
Please propose a sufficiently specific title, give names and affiliations of all volume editors and provide a short rationale for putting such a special issue together.
Please submit a list (even if partially tentative), giving the abstracts of the contributions, as well as names and affiliations of the contributing authors and (important) the article type for each contribution, see below:
a) Minireview: A typically 10-15 pages contribution, where approximately half of the material is in form of representative mini-review of the entire subtopic/subfield, followed by, approximately of the same length, a short review of own past and present work, coherently summarized and explained in the broader context of the first part.
b) Tutorial Review: A 15+ pages tutorial review (lecture) on a broader topic that adds significantly more introductory and background material to make this reasonably self-contained reading for graduate students and non-specialists from related areas.
c) Original Paper (v1): A typically 5-10 pages contribution, which contains a significant fraction of original material e.g. because it is a follow up paper of a recently published letter or rapid communication providing more background and details and/or possibly an update re results.
d) Original Paper (v2) : A short study, typically 3-5 pages containing predominantly new material, on a very specific aspect of some broader research published elsewhere.
Not accepted are the following paper categories:
e) Only review of own recent work
f) Summaries and/or condensates of recently published (or to be published) material
No a priori restrictions regarding the mix of categories a)-d) above are given from the side of EPJ ST. The abstracts must clearly and explicitly reflect the article type.
Proposals will be refereed and thereby either accept
