Chinese Physics C (CPC) publishes original research articles, rapid communications and reviews in the fields of particle physics, nuclear physics, astrophysics, cosmology, and accelerator physics.
Manuscripts submitted to Chinese Physics C must be submitted through the web-based submission system on this site. Submissions by email will not be accepted.
By submitting a paper for publication in Chinese Physics C, the authors imply that the material has not been published previously nor has been submitted for publication elsewhere.
Notification. The corresponding author will receive an automatic email acknowledgementwhen the manuscript is received. The final decision regarding acceptance or rejection of the article will be sent to the corresponding author by email within three months.
Review process. All manuscripts which pass initial editorial review will be peer-reviewed. If necessary, the author(s) may be asked to revise their manuscript and resubmit a modified version within two months. Revised manuscripts received later than two months will be considered new submissions. Revised manuscripts received later than six months after review will not be accepted.
Copyright transfer. If the paper is accepted for publication, the copyright of the paper should be transferred to the Editorial Department of Chinese Physics C. All responsibility for the contents
of the paper rests with the author(s), including correct ordering of author names, any matters relating to protection of state secrets, etc.
We recommend that all authors submit their manuscripts to the relevant sections of arXiv at http://arxiv.org or http://cn.arxiv.org, specifying ‘Submitted to Chinese Physics C’ in the header of the first page of the article. The relevant arXiv categories are:
hep-ex, hep-th, hep-ph, hep-lat, nucl-ex, nucl-th, physics, astro-ph, gr-qc, quant-ph
For high energy physics articles in the hep-ex, hep-ph, hep-th and hep-lat categories, you must submit your manuscript to arXiv and provide us with the arXiv number. Otherwise, your submission will not be sent for review.
Please send the arXiv number for your article to the CPC Editorial Office at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
Authors will receive a free PDF of their article when it is published. Qualifying high energy physics articles will be freely available to read and reuse under our Open Access policy via SCOAP3.
Chinese Physics C is published monthly. Accepted articles may appear online before publication of the print version.
Access to old manuscript system
From January 2016, we changed to a new manuscript system. If you have manuscripts in the old system (manuscript IDs 2016-0015 and earlier), you can check these here:
