About Jurnal Fizik Malaysia

Jurnal Fizik Malaysia (JFM) is a serial publication by the Malaysian Institute of Physics (IFM) since 1984. It serves the needs of physicists in Malaysia to communicate among themselves and with regional as well as international co-workers regarding all aspects of professional activities. The journal accepts original full length research papers. All papers submitted for consideration of publication will be refereed. The acceptance or rejection of a paper will be based on the referee(s)’s recommendation and is the sole prerogative of the Editorial Board.

e-ISSN: 2590-4191

Current Frequency: Yearly

Publication is almost immediately after acceptance and proof process.


JFM contains articles on Atomic, Molecular, Optical & Plasma Physics, High Energy Particle & Nuclear Physics, Astrophysics, Astronomy, Gravitation & Cosmology, Material Physics & Condensed Matter Physics, Fundamental Theory, Mathematical & Computational Physics, Physics Education and Applied & Interdisciplinary Physics.


Authors can refer to "Instructions to Contributors" regarding formatting and references. Manuscripts should be submitted using the online submission system.

We are glad to announce that Jurnal Fizik Malaysia is now indexed by Thomson Reuters Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI).
