  • (1) The paper submitted to the Special Issue should not have the text identical with one appeared in the SSDM2014 Extended Abstracts. The content of the paper should be original. It should be noted that you are not eligible for submission to the JJAP without presentation at the conference.
  • (2) The submitted paper will be reviewed based on the JJAP standard for an original paper. All papers submitted are not necessarily accepted in the final review.
  • (3) Note that the manuscript will not be included in the Special Issues, if the manuscript is not accepted for publication by the deadline for the Special Issue as a consequence of revisions requested by referees.
  • (4) From February 2015, online publishing on WEB site will be started. When all papers are accepted until January 26 in 2015, paper-based publishing will be performed.
  • (5) The authors of invited papers are also welcome to submit any original part of their presentations. Note that above items from (1) to (4) are also valid in this case.
  • (6) The authors (or their institution) are requested to pay publication charge (10,000 JPY/page). See for details NOTES TO CONTRIBUTORS for JJAP. The invoice will be sent to authors by e-mail within two or three days after the online publication.
  • (7) Authors should read the contents of the following URLs carefully before submitting papers: Papers should be submitted on the web-based system. For online submission, authors are requested to register as a user.
  • (8) By the investigation of the publication office of JJAP, it was found that the number of referenced papers for JJAP is smaller than that for famous journals in the same field, such as J. Appl. Phys (28 refs. in average). Thus, the number of referenced papers in JJAP should be more than 30.
    Please refer your own previous papers and other related papers, as many as possible, to make the difference between your new paper and other papers. It will improve the value of your papers.
