Manuscript submission

Information and guidelines for authors

In the Journal of Innovative Materials in Extreme Conditions you can publish original scientific papers, previous communications, reviews and professional papers, as well as short reviews of new books and scientific meetings in the fields of experimental and computational investigations of materials obtained or operated under extreme conditions. The emphasis is on the innovative materials processed and/or exploited at high pressures, under high magnetic and electric fields, over a wide range of temperatures, radiation conditions, corrosive environments, under extreme mechanical loads and non-equilibrium thermodynamic conditions. Due to the limitations of experimental methods under extreme conditions, a theoretical approach is also encouraged, independently, or as a complement to experimental research. Contributions include, but are not limited to, a variety of topics such as: Physics and chemistry of hydrogen and other light elements under extreme conditions, Materials in high magnetic and electric field, Materials response under radiation, Intense laser irradiation, Plasma processing, Materials for hostile chemical and corrosive environments, Structural components exposed to extreme loadings, Materials under shock waves, Biomedical engineering materials, Materials for vacuum technique. Short abstracts of the M. Sc. and Ph. D. thesis defended at Universities from the countries of the Balkan Region, or done by the young researchers from Balkan Region at the Universities worldwide, are also welcome. 

Manuscript will be considered only on the understanding that it is not currently being submitted to other journals.
Submission of an article implies that the results described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis), that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication is approved by all authors and that, if accepted, it will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in English or in any other language, without the written consent of the Publisher.
All papers will be sent for peer reviews, to two independent experts. Authors are obliged to follow remarks and comments of the reviewers, as well as to follow Instructions for preparing manuscripts, Reference list specification and technical remarks and corrections of the Editorial Board. 

The corresponding author is obliged to send an Authors’ Check list, fulfilled and signed.
Papers will be published in English, and authors are obliged to submit papers only in English, free of typing errors (please use Spell Checking). All titles of the papers listed in the list of references have to be in English, or translated in English with indication of the original language. 

Editorial Board has right to make small lector corrections and to shorten text of the paper, which would not influence author’s ideas and presentation. After computer lay-out of the paper, authors will obtain text as .pdf file for approval.

For each author full name, personal (or first) name(s) and family (or last) name(s), and affiliation, have to be given. Family or last name(s) has to be written in capital letters. In the case of more than one author, the name of the corresponding author should be indicated, with full postal address, E-mail address, and affiliation.

Each paper has to be written according to following order: title, author(s), affiliation(s), abstract, key words, body of the text with numerated sections and subsections including introduction, conclusions, acknowledgment (if necessary), nomenclature, and references. The pages must have page numbers.

The papers not prepared according to the instruction rules will be returned to the authors for proper preparation.

The manuscripts, not exceeding 5 pages (for review papers maximum 20 pages), including figures and tables, should be submitted in electronic form only in MS Word (.doc and .docx file) or LaTex format (.tex file), and sent to the JIMEC journal manager:
