Authors' opinion

  • "The rapid research letters came up with a great review and editorial process for rapid dissemination of important cross-disciplinary research results."

Alexander A. Balandin, University of California, Riverside

  • "physica status solidi has developed into one of the most prestigious scientific journals in the field of condensed matter physics. I was really impressed by the deep remarks of referees regardless of the positive or negative sense of the remarks. The rank of a publication in the rapid research letters is of higher value than in most other scientific journals with a Letter style."

Sergei Baranovski, Philipps-Universität, Marburg
