Reduction Policy


The scientific journal Kondensirovannye sredy i mezhfaznye granitsy = Condensed Matter and Interphases is a leading scientific publication in Russia dedicated to key issues of condensed matter and physicochemical processes at interfaces and within their volume.

 The aim of the journal is to publish the results of new research projects at the intersection of contemporary condensed matter physics and chemistry, material science and nanoindustry, solid state chemistry, inorganic chemistry, and physical chemistry and to share scientific data in the following sections:

  • Devices and New Research Methods.
    Valery A. Ketsko, Dr. Sci. (Chem.) (Kurnakov Institute of General and Inorganic Chemistry of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russia).   RSCI  Researcher iD
    Aleksandr D. Izotov, Dr. Sci. (Chem.), Professor, Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences (Kurnakov Institute of General and Inorganic Chemistry of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russia). RSCI  Scopus iD Researcher iD
    Vera B. Gorfinkel, Dr. Sci. (Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, USA).Scopus iD

The purpose of the journal is to acquaint the Russian scientific community with the current issues in the area of condensed matter and interphases, to focus their attention on unresolved theoretical and practical problems, to expand its audience by attracting specialists from related fields of chemical science, thereby raising the discussion and the quality of publications to a higher level.

The core of the journal is original articles describing the results of major ongoing projects and completed investigations. Along with original scientific articles, the journal publishes short reports as well as reviews prepared to special order by the editorial office.

The journal is international in scope, it welcomes articles in English by specialists in the field of condensed matter from all around the world.
