Scientific publishing has reached the point where unrestricted access to publications has become crucial for the development of the academic community. As we have already announced, the Central European Journal of Physics (CEJP) has now been changed into an Open Access journal. This will also be reflected in the journal’s new title, as starting from Volume 2015 CEJP will become OPEN PHYSICS (www.degruyter.com/journals/phys). However, the coverage in the Abstracting/Indexing services will remain unchanged.
We are grateful to the contributing authors, reviewers and readers for their loyalty and constant interest in our journal, and we are looking forward to greeting all new members.


We recommend reading review article entitled "Origins of mass" by Frank Wilczek. The paper is available in Volume 10, Issue 5, October 2012 of CEJP.


We recommend reading our latest topical issue devoted to Fractional calculus: theory and numerical methods.

De Gruyter Open is excited to announce a groundbreaking publishing initiative. Central European Journal of Physics (CEJP) is now becoming Open Access, which means freely available to everyone, anywhere in the world. Starting with volume 2015, CEJP will provide our users with free, instant, and permanent access to all content worldwide. This is a fantastic opportunity for our authors, since we can now guarantee the widest possible readership for their works – including a new generation of readers, both inside and outside the field of physics. Hence very soon, we aim for CEJP to become a major high-impact journal in the world of physics.


As the most important aspect of the journal has always been the quality of its published research, we are happy to confirm that CEJP will maintain its practice of detailed and critical peer review, as well as its extensive editorial involvement throughout the publication process. CEJP will also explore new ways to distribute its content, thus making it much more visible to the academic community. As a result, not only are we confident that CEJP will continue to maintain the high standard of scholarship it currently enjoys, but we expect this new opportunity to attract increasingly exciting research in volumes to come.


Moreover, it must be pointed out that the preparation of a peer-reviewed, edited, and formatted article for online publication - and hosting it on a server that remains accessible around the clock - is not without costs. These expenses will be covered by Article Processing Charges, which are paid by the author’s funder, sponsor or affiliated institution. Manuscripts accepted for publication in CEJP will be subject to Article Processing Charges of 1000 EUR. However, it is important to remember that authors from countries where no such funding schemes are in place will be given the opportunity to publish in the journal free of charge.


Finally, please note that due to a significant backlog of manuscripts, all new submissions to CEJP will be considered for publication in the 2015 volume.
