About the book

This book is devoted to discussing several topics on quantum information science. Studying this subject, we see its consequences are related to quantum effects in physics. We realize that quantum theory and the interpretation of quantum mechanics are responsible for various theoretical progress and experimental topics, visioning quantum devices' implementation. However, the understanding of quantum physics and engineering is a serious challenge to solve. In the last decade, quantum information science development is considerable compared to before two decades ago, or more, and some remarkable progress in manufacturing quantum computers are observed recently. The discussion of topics related to quantum information science is now crucial. For this reason, several efforts made to discuss topics addressed from the fundamentals to applications is relevant. In the current issue, theoretical background and other topics such as quantum communication, quantum algorithm, other applications as quantum complexity, and physical implementations, including other quantum information topics, are welcome.

Publishing process

Book initiated and editor appointed

Date completed: February 1st 2021

Applications to edit the book are assessed and a suitable editor is selected, at which point the process begins.

Chapter proposals submitted and reviewed

Deadline Extended: Open for Submissions

Potential authors submit chapter proposals ready for review by the academic editor and our publishing review team.

Approved chapters written in full and submitted

Deadline for full chapters: April 30th 2021

Once approved by the academic editor and publishing review team, chapters are written and submitted according to pre-agreed parameters

Full chapters peer reviewed

Review results due: July 19th 2021

Full chapter manuscripts are screened for plagiarism and undergo a Main Editor Peer Review. Results are sent to authors within 30 days of submission, with suggestions for rounds of revisions.

Book compiled, published and promoted

Expected publication date: September 17th 2021

All chapters are copy-checked and typesetted before being published. IntechOpen regularly submits its books to major databases for evaluation and coverage, including the Clarivate Analytics Book Citation Index in the Web of ScienceTM Core Collection. Other discipline-specific databases are also targeted, such as Web of Science's BIOSIS Previews.

About the editor

Sergio Curilef

Universidad Católica del Norte

Sergio Curilef has been a full professor in the Physics Department, Universidad Católica del Norte, Antofagasta, Chile, since 1998. He obtained his Ph.D. in Physics from the Brazilian Center for Research in Physics (CBPF)-RJ, Brazil, in July 1997.  His main research interests are statistical physics and quantum mechanics of systems with long-range interactions, particles in magnetic fields, and nonlinear phenomena. He has recently developed research on complex systems and applications to science and engineering. He is the principal investigator in several research projects, and he did a sabbatical year at the University of Pretoria, South Africa, in 2007. He has also created the undergraduate and postgraduate programs in Physics at his university, where he is currently director of the Physics Department.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Maja Bozicevic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
