Dear Colleagues and PLU23 conference participants,

I’m happy to inform that you have the opportunity to publish the manuscript in Phase Transition Journal (Taylor & Francis) or Optical Materials (Elsevier). However, you should remember that the subject of the manuscript should be consistent with the profile of each journal. Below I will briefly present how to submit manuscripts to both journals:

1. Phase Transition
Please login on your personal account by website: and next choose: “Go to submission site” (link opens in a new window). When start submission and during fulfilling “Manuscript Details” you find the question: Are you submitting your paper for a specific special issue or article collection? (This is typically in response to a Call For Papers, Editor request, or direct invitation) please choose Yes
And next, take from the menu: VI Polish-Lithuanian-Ukrainian conference, and follow the page guide.

2. Optical Materials
Please send to and cc:  abstract or full text of the manuscript. (Please, let know Professor Piasecki if you are interested in the publication in the journal – the deadline for notification of Professor Piasecki is mid-November). The final deadline for full manuscript submission is January 15-th, 2024. Next, after initial evaluation, you will be invited (and obtain detailed guidance) how to submit manuscript by the website (Editorial Manager) to a special number of the journal
