European Journal of Physics

Aims and scope

The primary mission of the European Journal of Physics is to assist in maintaining and improving the standard of taught physics in universities and other institutes of higher education. Authors submitting articles must indicate the usefulness of their material to physics education and make clear the level of readership (undergraduate, graduate, general physicist, or specialist) for which the article is intended. Submissions that omit this information or which, in the publisher's opinion, do not contribute to the above mission will not be considered for publication. To this end, we welcome articles that provide original insights and aim to enhance learning in one or more areas of physics. They should normally include at least one of the following: Explanations of how contemporary research can inform the understanding of physics at university level: for example a survey of a research field at a level accessible to students, explaining how it illustrates some general principles. Original insights into the derivation of results. These should be of some general interest, consisting of more than corrections to textbooks. Descriptions of novel laboratory exercises illustrating new techniques of general interest. Those based on relatively inexpensive equipment are specially welcome. Articles of a scholarly or reflective nature that are aimed to be of interest to, and at a level appropriate for, physics students or recent graduates. Descriptions of successful and original student projects, experimental, theoretical or computational. Discussions of the history, philosophy and epistemology of physics, at a level accessible to physics students and teachers. Reports of new developments in physics curricula and the techniques for teaching physics. The journal is not a vehicle for the publication of original research unless it fulfills one or more of the above criteria. Manuscripts must be clearly written, technically sound and include references to the relevant literature. Contributions can be in the form of papers of typical length of not more than 4 000 words, or Letters which must be not more than 1 200 words. Comments on articles previously published in the Journal are also acceptable. However, authors submitting such a comment will be asked to correspond directly with the author(s) of the original article in the hope that they can agree a text to appear under both names. If this proves impossible, a separate Comment and Reply will be considered. In either case, Comments will be subject to the normal refereeing procedures. The Journal will from time to time solicit reviews of books relevant to its subject remit.
