Focus and Scope

The Revista Mexicana de Física (Rev. Mex. Fis.) publishes original papers of interest to our readers from the physical science com unity. Language may be English or Spanish, however, given the nature of our readers, English is recommended. Articles are classified as follows:

Research. Articles reporting original results in physi­cs.

Reviews. Critical surveys of specific physics topics in which recent published information is analyzed and discussed. Reviews should provide valuable bibliography to the specialists. Reviews are requested by invitation. Alternatively, authors can submit a review project. In the latter case, the editorial committee will decide whether or not to accept the project.

Comments. Short papers (four pages maximum) that critically address papers by others authors previously published in the Revista Mexicana de Física. A comment should state clearly to which paper it refers.

Errata. Short papers (two pages maximum) where results of previous published work is ammended.

Revista Mexicana de Física is publishedbimonthly and can be freely accessed through our webpage (http://rmf.smf.mx). It is also sent to libraries of many academic institutions in México and other countries, as well as to subscribers and active members of the Mexican Physical Society.

The Revista Mexicana de Física is indexed in the following data bases: Actualidad Iberoamericana, Astron. & Astrophys. Abstr., Bull. Signal, Chem. Abstr., Curr. Cont., Curr. Math. Pub., Curr. Pap. Phys., Electr. & Electron. Abstr., INIS Atomind, Math. Sci., LatIndex, Math. Rev., Nucl. Sci. Abstr., PERIODICA, Phys. Abstr., Phys. Ber., Res. Alert, Sci. Abstr., Sci. Cit. Ind., SciSearch, and VINITI. It is also indexed in the “Revistas Mexicanas de Investigación Científica y Tecnológica Index” by the Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología.

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.

There is no publication fee.

Signed papers are the authors sole responsibility.

Full or partial reproduction of articles is authorized provided appropriate bibliographic citation: Revista Mexicana de Física, or Rev. Mex. Fis.
