About the Journal

This is the primary website of The Abraham Zelmanov Journal. You may like to visit the French-hosted mirror of the journal at and The Abraham Zelmanov Journal is now postponed. Therefore, the editors offer to redirect all submissions to Progress in Physics, the US journal of general physics containing a substantial part of publications on General Relativity and cosmology.

This journal is named after Abraham Zelmanov (1913-1987), a prominent scientist working in the General Theory of Relativity and cosmology, whose main goal was the mathematical apparatus for calculation of the physical observable quantities in the General Theory of Relativity (it is also known as the theory of chronometric invariants). He also developed the basics of the theory of an inhomogeneous anisotropic universe, and the classification of all possible models of cosmology which could be theoretically conceivable in the space-time of General Relativity (the Zelmanov classification). He also introduced the Anthropic Principle and the Infinite Relativity Principle in cosmology. A short biographic essay about Zelmanov is accessed on the pages.

The main idea of this journal is to publish most creative works on relativity produced by the modern authors, and also the legacy of the classics which was unaccessed in English before. This journal therefore is open for submissions containing a valuable result in the General Theory of Relativity, gravitation, cosmology, and also the related themes from physics, mathematics, and astronomy. All submitted papers should be in good English, and be designed in LaTeX format using our LaTeX template (you may like our list of free LaTeX software to install it on your computer). The LaTeX file(s) should be submitted to the Editor.

This journal is a non-commercial, academic edition. It is printed from private donations (we are welcome to donations which could support the journal; contact the Editor for the current information on this subject). Upon publication, the authors of each paper will be sent 3 copies of the journal (the authors are requested to pay postal charges dependent on the location), whilst any academic library can register for the printed copies of the journal free of charge. To order printed issues, contact the Editor.
