Condensed Matter Physics, 2016, vol. 19, No. 1, 10001

Title: Editorial

Dear colleagues - our authors and readers,

At the turn of the year 2016 we would like to thank you all for your valuable contributions to our journal activities and we are happy to continue serving for the benefit of a broad scientific community. In these somewhat restless and uneasy times, we see our role not in merely technical assistance for publishing activities but also in sharing scientific knowledge from Ukrainian authors to a wider international audience, as well as in introducing the cutting edge research results to the native Ukrainian reader. We hope that these activities serve the purpose of strengthening the existing scientific links between the Ukrainian science and the rest of the world and help to establish new mutually beneficial links.

In this respect, we start our publishing year with two special issues. The issue No.1 is entitled "Phenomena at solid-fluid interfaces: Theory and computer simulations". It will be published in honour of Stefan Sokołowski who works prolifically in this field for more than 30 years, being an active member of our Editorial Board and a frequently contributing author. The issue No.2 is the Festschrift in honour of Anthony Haymet, renowned expert in theoretical Physical Chemistry, with a long-lasting collaboration and influence over several leading researchers of the Institute for Condensed Matter Physics. Two other issues in 2016 will be of a regular type containing research papers in various fields within a scientific scope of our journal.

The 2014 ISI impact factor of our journal is 0.748.

Using the occasion, we wish you all a fruitful year 2016 with new scientific achievements and valuable results and, as always, invite you to contribute your research to our journal in the form of a regular article, review or brief communication.
