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.

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‑er/default.aspx. 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 – oer@​wat.​edu.​pl.


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 http://​libra​ry​.cal​tech​.edu/ 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:

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.
