Optical Memory & Neural Networks (Information Optics)

ISSN PRINT: 1060-992X
ISSN ONLINE: 1934-7898


The journal covers a wide range of issues in information optics such as optical memory, mechanisms for optical data recording and processing, photosensitive materials, optical, optoelectronic and holographic nanostructures, articles on optics and photonics and many other related topics. Papers on memory systems using holographic and biological structures and concepts of brain operation are also included. The journal pays particular attention to research in the field of neural net systems that may lead to a new generation of computational technologies by endowing them with intelligence.

Guidelines for Authors

Author's Agreement Form

To simplify interaction between author(s) and publisher, please submit copyright transfer agreements (in the Russian or English language) together with the manuscript to the editorial board of the journal. The copyright transfer agreement can be sent as a digital copy of the original (this is preferable) or as a paper copy. The copyright transfer agreement should be filled out using MS Word or hand-printed and signed by all authors (coauthors and copyright holders).

These agreements are contracts of adhesion.

A copyright transfer agreement enters into force if a manuscript is accepted for publication in English. If for any reason your article is rejected by the editorial board of a journal, the agreement loses its force. The decision on acceptance of a manuscript for publication is the exclusive right of the editorial board of the respective journal. By signing the agreement, the authors guarantee that they have familiarized themselves and agree with its conditions.

The editorial boards of journals do not accept manuscripts without copyright transfer agreements.

All questions regarding copyright transfer agreements can be sent by e-mail to dogovor@maik.ru. You can use our web-based feedback form or contact the editorial board.
