Authors should remember that readers of the journal will come from a wide variety of backgrounds, both mathematical (not only combinatorics but also algebra, topology, geometry, analysis, probability, etc) and physical (quantum field theory, statistical mechanics, quantum gravity etc). Therefore, authors should write with such a diverse audience in mind and should take care to provide, in the introductory section of their article, a clear statement of the problem to be studied and the mathematical and/or physical background from which it arises. Authors are also encouraged to provide, in the second section of the article, a brief pedagogical review of the mathematical or physical tools that will be used in their work.

The list of specific subject areas in which articles are anticipated includes:

 Combinatorics of renormalization ;

 Combinatorics of cluster, virial and related expansions ;

 Discrete geometry and combinatorics of quantum gravity ;

 Graph polynomials and statisticalmechanics models ;

 Topological graph polynomials and quantum field theory ;

 Physical applications of combinatorial Hopf algebras, matroids, combinatorial species, and other combinatorial structures ;

 Exact solutions of statisticalmechanical models ;

 Combinatorics and algebra of integrable systems ;

 Computational complexity and its relation with statistical physics ;

 Computational/algorithmic aspects of combinatorial physics ;

 Interactions of combinatorial physics with topology, geometry, probability theory, or computer science.
