Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in PDF file format.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines, which is found in About the Journal.

Author Guidelines

Revista Mexicana de Física publishes articles  in English but occasionally also in Spanish. Submitted manuscripts must contain: a title; name, institution and address of each author; an abstract and one to five keywords. Articles in Spanish must include title and abstract in English.

NOTE: Please avoid writing acronyms in the title and abstract.

Manuscripts should be organized in numbered sections, with subtitles and references. References must be presented as follows: authors’ name, manuscript title, journal’s name (abbreviated according to international conventions), volume number in bold face, year (within parentheses), first page number, and DOI hyper-link. For books the reference must include: author´s name, book's name, publisher, place of publication and corresponding pages. Examples:

E. Ley-Koo, Recent progress in confined atoms and molecules: Superintegrability and symmetry breakings, Rev. Mex. Fis. 64 (2018) 326.

D.J. Griffiths, Introduction to Electrodynamics, 2nd ed. (Prentice Hall, Englewood Cliffs, NJ, 1989), pp. 331–334.

References and footnotes should be numbered consecutively.

To submit an article to Revista Mexicana de Física, authors are encouraged to use our website:

https://rmf.smf.mx/ojs/index.php/rmf

Please register as an author and upload your work, in pdf format, following the instructions.  You must classify your article in one of the corresponding sections: Reviews, Letters, Advanced Light Sources, Atomic and Molecular Physics, Condensed Matter, Fluid Dynamics, Gravitation, Mathematical Physics and Field Theory, High Energy Physics, Instrumentation, Material Sciences, Medical Physics, Nuclear Physics, Optics, Other areas in Physics, Plasma Physics, Solid State Physics, Thermodynamics and Statistical Physics, Comments, Errata.

The manuscript must be submitted with a presentation letter addressed to the Journal's Chief Editor, Dr. Alfredo Raya, signed by  the author to whom correspondence should be addressed.

The Journal will notify the author upon receipt of the manuscript and a reference number will be assigned which should be used in any further communication. In this manner, you will be able to follow up on line the progress of the editorial process.

By submitting an article to Revista Mexicana de Física the author(s) agrees that the article has not been published and will not be simultaneously submitted to another journal. In order to check the originality and plagiarism-free content of submitted papers, Revista Mexicana de Física runs each contribution through a plagiarism-free software.

Articles submitted to the Revista Mexicana de Física undergo a review process by worldwide specialized, independent, anonymous referees. The final decision on the publication of a paper is the sole responsibility of the Journal Chief Editor. Authors may appeal an editor's decision by sending an appeal letter. The Chief Editor will consider the appeal and in case this is sustained, she/he will seek the opinion of the corresponding section editor and if necessary of a second reviewer.

Papers are evaluated on the basis of the following criteria:

  1. Originality
  2. A clear separation of hypothesis, methods and conclusions
  3. Clarity of analysis
  4. An adequate number of references
  5. Appropriate length
  6. Information conveyed by legible and understandable wording

Once an article is accepted, authors will be requested for the final files. Only LaTeX files will be considered since LaTeX speeds up the editing process. For this purpose you can see the RMF template. In case you use LaTeX without the template we provide, it is recommended to include the \documentclass{article} in the preamble and write the text in a single column. If the paper contains illustrations (figures, drawings, photographs, etc.), these files are required to be sent in bmp or jpg formats with their respective legend and must be numbered consecutively. Tables must also contain their respective legend and be numbered consecutively.

Revista Mexicana de Física strives to shorten the time elapsed between the receipt and the ruling for papers to be accepted or not. Papers are submitted for peer review within one week after receipt and weekly reminders are sent to reviewers within two weeks of the original request.
