Solids (ISSN 2673-6497) is an international, multidisciplinary, peer-reviewed, and scientific open-access, open-source journal that encourages authors to submit high-quality papers in all areas of solid-state sciences. We accept reviews, regular research papers and communications reflecting the latest developments in the field.
Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their results in as much detail as possible. Full experimental details must be provided so that results can be reproduced. Electronic files regarding the full details of the experimental procedure, if unable to be published in a normal way, can be deposited as supplementary material or deposited in a publicly accessible repository with appropriate links specified. Code bases for modeling and simulations have to be described, including code versions/revisions, and if public open-source codes, links to relevant repositories have to be supplied; relevant input and output files have to be supplied as supplemental material or deposited in a publicly accessible repository with appropriate links specified.
We accept manuscripts on all aspects of solid-state sciences. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
- Synthesis of new solid materials
- Properties and potential applications of solids
- Structural, thermal, optical, electronical, coupled and other properties of solids
- Mechanics of solids
- Solid-state physics
- Surface and porosity
- Reactions in and on solids
- Spectroscopy of solids
- Modelling, simulation, and theory studies of solids
- Energy conversion and storage
- Characterization methods of solids
