New Content


In addition to review articles, the journal now also welcomes original papers and letters.

  • The change takes immediate effect, i.e. researchers can submit their original papers or letters now.
  • All articles will undergo a pre-screening. Suitable manuscripts will be subject to a strict peer-review process. The number of research papers and letter articles will be limited.
  • All accepted articles will be published online as soon as possible and thus appear online well ahead of the print version. All online articles are fully citable.
  • Letter articles are limited to 4 print pages. They will enjoy priority handling, but also need to prove that they are of high importance and urgency.

LPR Call for Paper

Submit your first class research articles to Laser & Photonics Reviews now.
As always, article submission is handled via our standard submission tool:
