Since 2017, the journal "Physics and Chemistry of Solid State" published simultaneously in both versions: 
1) Ukrainian submission with English abstract (ISSN 1729-4428 (Print), ISSN 2309-8589 (Online); 
2) English submission (translated Ukrainian version) with Ukrainian abstract (ISSN 2309-8589 (Online);

The editorial board aims to present as much as possible your original scientific results among the world scientific community through their dissemination in leading international science and technology databases.
