About the Journal

Jurnal Ilmu Fisika (JIF) translated Journal of Physical Science is a peer-reviewed open access journal on interdisciplinary studies of physics, and is published twice a year (March and September).  JIF’s first issue was published in 2009 and it is made available in electronic form since March 2018 (Vol. 10, No.1). The journal publication is maintained by Jurusan Fisika (Department of Physics), Universitas Andalas, Padang, west Sumatra, Indonesia as the publisher. JIF works closely with Physical Society Indonesia (PSI) which provides editorial members, peer reviewers, and authors, it is a professional institution related to JIF's aims and scopes. Accepted papers are in English only. We welcome other language articles, subject to translation cost before publication acceptance.
