It is a strong policy of the F S R C to
include in the
F S R C Books of Reports as many
Manuscripts (MS) as possible.
Some authors need more time for
preparation of their MSs.
In these cases the F S RC slides the
deadline to accommodate the requests.
This in many cases lead to a (significant) delay in publishing process.
Taking into account in-depth-local-review
character of the F S R C Books of Reports
the quality is of ultimate importance
as opposed to ordinary conference proceedings
which are published immediately after the
conference without a serious editorial work.
Once published the F S R C Books of
Reports are highly acclaimed publications and are of a
long-term importance for the scientific research
OF THE MANUSCRIPTS
The manuscripts are published in one of
the following book series:
TRENDS IN PHYSICS (
I A P S Press, La Jolla, CA)
(dealing with traditional subfields of physics)
FRONTIERS IN INTERDISCIPLINARY
( I A P S Press,
La Jolla, CA)
(biological physics, health physics, environmental
physics, technological physics and similar)
in SCIENCE and TECHNOLOGY ( I
A P S Press, La Jolla, CA )
series of books are forums for the publication of edited
topical books within key fields of physics, interdisciplinary
physics,and science and technology.. Volumes in the series are
based largely on invited symposia organized by the La Jolla
International School of Science and The Institute for Advanced
Physics Studies, La Jolla, California. These small (up to 60-70
attendees) select meetings (invited talks are selected by the
members of the Science Advisory Board) bring together prominent
researchers from around the world to exchange ideas and
approaches, discuss critical issues, critique a field's present
status, and point the way toward new avenues in research.
contributions are reviews of author's (author's group) research
in the past few years. They are elaborated and in-depth
presentations of the chosen topics. The length is up to the
author(s) and varies from 10 -50 pages. The style is also up to
the author(s) (usually it follows the rules for the publication
in journal(s) of most interest for the particular author(s)).
The author(s) are encouraged to submit the manuscripts during
the conference. However, if this can affect the quality of
presentation it is preferable that the author(s) take more time
for the preparation of the manuscripts.
in the series--all of whom appear by invitation-- are also
asked to go beyond the narrow particulars of their work and to
reflect on larger questions, problems, and trends. The
resulting volumes will document the latest thinking regarding
the current and future states of physics, interdisciplinary
physics,and science research for the international
science research community.
The manuscript should be submitted at the time of
conference (or later) on disk, Microsoft
Word, or emailed to us in MS Word format.
publication of F S R C Conference Books is planned to be
3-4 months after the particular conference.
deadline strongly depends on the time frame the
manuscripts are received.
Some of the authors ask for more time to prepare their
is always OK-ed by the F S R C.
most important aspect for the FSRC
is the quality of the published
rather than expedience as in the case of regular
cases when the publication of the
is urgent the F SR C do not interfere
with copyright. In
other words the MS can be published in a journal and later
review-type version of the MS can be published in the F S
R C Books.
