Opto-Electronics Review was established in 1992 for the
publication of scientific papers concerning optoelectronics and
photonics materials, system and signal processing. This journal covers
the whole field of theory, experimental verification, techniques and
instrumentation and brings together, within one journal, contributions
from a wide range of disciplines. Papers covering novel topics extending
the frontiers in optoelectronics and photonics are very encourage. The
main goal of this magazine is promotion of papers presented by European
scientific teams, especially those submitted by important team from
Central and Eastern Europe. However, contributions from other parts of
the world are by no means excluded.
Articles are published in OPELRE in the following categories:
-invited reviews presenting the current state of the knowledge,
-specialized topics at the forefront of optoelectronics and photonics
and their applications,
-refereed research contributions reporting on original scientific or
-conference papers printed in normal issues as invited or contributed
Authors of review papers are encouraged to write articles of relevance
to a wide readership including both those established in this field of
research and non-specialists working in related areas. Papers considered
as “letters” are not published in OPELRE.
Opto-Electronics Review is published quarterly as a journal of the
Association of Polish Electrical Engineers (SEP) and Polish Academy of
Sciences (PAS) in cooperation with the Military University of Technology
and under the auspices of the Polish Optoelectronics Committee of SEP.

Policies and ethics:
The editors of the journal place particular emphasis on compliance with
the following principles:
Authorship of the paper: Authorship should be limited to those
who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design,
execution, or interpretation of the reported study.
Originality and plagiarism: The authors should ensure that they
have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the
work and/or words of others, that this has been appropriately cited or
Data access and retention: Authors may be asked to provide the
raw data in connection with a paper for editorial review, and should be
prepared to provide public access to such data.
Multiple, redundant or concurrent publication: An author should
not in general publish manuscripts describing essentially the same
research in more than one journal or primary publication.
Acknowledgement of sources: Proper acknowledgment of the work of
others must always be given.
Disclosure and conflicts of interest: All submissions must
include disclosure of all relationships that could be viewed as
presenting a potential conflict of interest.
Fundamental errors in published works: When an author discovers a
significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the
author's obligation to promptly notify the journal editor or publisher
and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper.
Reporting standards: Authors of reports of original research
should present an accurate account of the work performed as well as an
objective discussion of its significance.
Hazards and human or animal subjects: Statements of compliance
are required if the work involves chemicals, procedures or equipment
that have any unusual hazards inherent in their use, or if it involves
the use of animal or human subjects.
Use of patient images or case details: Studies on patients or
volunteers require ethics committee approval and informed consent, which
should be documented in the paper.
