Published 2015


OPTO−ELECTRONICS REVIEW (O−ER) was established in 1992 for the publication of scientific papers concerning optoelectronics materials, systems and signal processing. This journal covers the whole field of theory, experimental, techniques and instrumentation and brings together, within one journal, contributions from a wide range of disciplines.

Papers covering novel topics extending the frontiers in optoelectronics are very encouraged. The main goal of this magazine is promotion of papers presented by European scientific teams, especially those submitted by important teams from Central and Eastern Europe. However, contributions from other parts of the world are by no means excluded. Now, O−ER is starting a new stage in its development, one that will strongly improve its position among scientific journals in the field of optoelectronics and photonics.

Articles are published in OE−R in the following categories:

  • invited reviews presenting the current state of the knowledge,
  • specialized topics at the forefront of optoelectronics and its applications,
  • refereed research contributions reporting on original scientific or technological achievements,
  • conference papers printed either in O−ER Special Issue, serving as Conference Proceedings, or in normal issues as invited or contributed papers.

Author of review papers are encouraged to write articles of relevance to a wide readership including both those established in this field of research and non−specialists working in related areas. The papers considered as "letters" are not published in O-ER.

OPTO−ELECTRONICS REVIEW is published quarterly as a journal of the Association of Polish Electrical Engineers (SEP) in cooperation with the Military University of Technology and under the auspices of the Polish Optoelectronics Committee of SEP.

OPTO−ELECTRONICS REVIEW is sponsored by the Polish Ministry of Education and Science.

Opto-Electronics Review w elitarnej grupie światowych czasopism naukowych


Począwszy od bieżącego roku, to znaczy od vol. 20, nr 1, czasopismo Opto-Electronics Review (O-ER) zostało włączone do elitarnej grupy pism naukowych na świecie. Jest indeksowane w dwu bazach Thomson Reuter – popularnego w ewaluacji czasopism naukowych Instytutu Filadelfijskiego:

  • Current Contents®/Physical Chemical and Earth Sciences
  • Current Contents®/Engineering Computing and Technology

Ogółem przez Thomson Reuter jest indeksowanych około 8 500 czasopism naukowych. Jednakże do Current Contents® włączonych jest znacznie mniej, bo około 3 tysięcy czasopism.

Średni impact factor dla O-ER za ostanie pięć lat wynosi ponad 1. Pismo to jest najwyżej notowanym pismem technicznym w Polsce.

Właścicielem O-ER jest Stowarzyszenie Elektryków Polskich. Trzeba jednak podkreślić, że utrzymanie wysokiego standardu pisma jest możliwe dzięki wsparciu finansowemu Wojskowej Akademii Technicznej.

Authors Guide

Authors are urgently requested, in their own interest, to comply carefully with this recommendation.

Manuscripts preferred for publication in Opto−Electronics Review (O−ER) are those that:

  1. contain original work – which is not and has not been published elsewhere in any other medium by the authors or anyone else, and is not under consideration for publication elsewhere. This restriction does not apply to review articles,
  2. are focused on the core aims and scope of the journal – O−ER is a scientific journal publishing fundamental research results from all fields of optoelectronics,
  3. are clearly and correctly written – should contain all essential features of a complete scientific paper, should be written in a clear, easy to understand manner, and be readable for a wide audience of scientists,
  4. are written in English – should be clearly and grammatically written, in an easily readable style. This will help avoid severe misunderstandings which might lead to rejection of the paper,
  5. are submitted in electronic format.

Manuscripts should be submitted in single−column format via the online system available at The text should be prepared in the native format of the word−processor used – as a .doc file. Authors should register themselves first and then upload their manuscripts. In case of any technical problems, please contact the Managing Editor of O−ER –


Preparation of the text


  1. The manuscript should contain title page, abstract, keywords, text, figures, and reference list. Generally a standard scientific paper is divided into:
    • introduction: to present the subject of your paper clearly, indicate scope of the subject, present the goals of your paper and finally the organization of your paper,
    • main text: to present all important elements of your scientific message,
    • conclusions: to summarize your paper.
  2. Each manuscript should start with a brief concise title in which only the first word is capitalised and no acronyms are used (unless they are widely known).
  3. The title page should include the author's (authors') name(s) given without titles or scientific degrees like Prof., Ph.D., etc., however, with the corresponding author marked by an asterisk. This should be followed by the affiliation of each of the authors. For the corresponding author, the full mailing address with e−mail address are needed.
  4. The text of the paper should be preceded by a concise abstract, and at least three keywords, which characterise the subject of the paper. The abstract should be self−contained (without footnotes) presenting all items of the paper's subject about which new results have been gained and emphasising the conclusions most important from scientific point of view. The abstract should not exceed 200 words in length. The main text of paper should be divided into sections and subsections (if needed the subsections may be divided in paragraphs). These parts of the text should have relevant headings numbered accordingly by only one number (1.), two numbers (1.1.), or three numbers (1.1.1.).
  5. In the text, the greatest care must be taken to observe consistency in the use of abbreviations for units and other expressions.




Source references in the text of the article should be given in square brackets, e.g. [4], numbered consequentially in citation order and listed at the end of the manuscript. Journal references are to be written as follows: initial(s) and surname(s) of author(s), title of a paper, journal name (italic) abbreviated according to the ISI standards (see reference/ abbreviations/), volume (bold), issue (only if needed), page numbers (inclusive), and year in brackets; while book references should be written as follows: initial(s) and surname(s) of author(s), title of a paper, title of book (italic), volume number, page numbers (inclusive), the publisher, its location, and year of edition. Follow the three examples; for a journal, a book and a paper in a book, accordingly:

  1. D.A. Scriber, M.R. Kruer, and J.M. Killiany, "Infrared focal plane array technology", Proc. IEEE 79, 66–85 (1991).
  2. P.Y. Yu and M. Cardona, Fundaments of Semiconductors, Springer−Verlag, Berlin, 1996.
  3. M.A. Kinch, "Metal−insulator−semiconductor infrared detectors", in Semiconductors and Semimetals, Vol. 18, pp. 313–378, edited by R.K. Willardson and A.C. Beer, Academic Press, New York, 1981.

Please use the following format to cite material from O−ER journal: Author(s), "Title of paper", Opto−Electron. Rev. volume, page numbers (year). For example:

C.R. Wronski, L. Liao, R. Koval, and R.W. Collins, "Recent advances in the understanding of a−Si:H based materials for performance of their solar cells," Opto−Electron. Rev. 8, 275–279 (2000).

Copyright Transfer – submission of a manuscript indicates a tacit understanding that the paper is not actively under consideration for publication with other journals. Once the paper is accepted, authors are assumed to have transferred the copyright of the paper to O−ER. After submission the authors are asked to send as soon as possible the Transfer of Copyright Agreement (original) by post to the following address:


Institute of Applied Physics,Military University of Technology

2 Urbanowicza Str., 00−908 Warsaw, Poland




Figures should be numbered consecutively and should carry a caption. Decimals not fractions should be used with metric units. SI units are preferred. All illustrations should be able to withstand 50% reduction. Please ensure maximum black−white contrast in your original figures. Figures may be published in colour, if this is judged essential by the Editor. The Publisher and the author will each bear part of the extra costs involved.

Please convert the images to one of the following formats (note the resolution requirements for line drawings, halftones, and line/halftone):

  • eps: vector drawings – embed the font or save the text as "graphics",
  • tiff: colour or grayscale photographs (halftones): always use a minimum of 300 dpi,
  • tiff: bitmapped line drawings: use a minimum of 600 dpi,
  • tiff: combinations bitmapped line/half−tone (colour or grayscale): a minimum of 300 dpi is required.

If your electronic artwork is created in a Microsoft Office application (Word, PowerPoint, Excel) then please supply "as is".

Please do not:

  • supply files that are optimised for screen use and their resolution is too low,
  • supply files that are too low in resolution,
  • submit graphics that are disproportionately large for the content.

Photographs are expensive to reproduce and should only be included when they undoubtedly contribute to a better understanding of the text. Authors can attach files in most popular formats, including images in .bmp, .jpg, and .tiff formats. Photographs and other graphs have to be sent as separate files.

Tables should be numbered consecutively. Their positions in text should be indicated clearly. They should have brief titles and column headings.




The proof in .pdf format will be sent by e−mail to the corresponding author. If you do not wish to use the .pdf annotations function, you may list the corrections. Please use this proof only for checking the typesetting, editing, completeness and correctness of the text, tables and figures. Significant changes to the article as accepted for publication will only be considered at this stage with permission from the Editor. Please let us have all your corrections within 48 hours.
