Aims and Scope
The focus of CPC is on contemporary computational methods and techniques and their implementation, the effectiveness of which will normally be evidenced by the author(s) within the context of a substantive problem in physics. Within this setting CPC publishes two types of paper.

Computer Programs in Physics (CPiP)
These papers describe significant computer programs to be archived in the CPC Program Library which is held in the Mendeley Data repository. The submitted software must be covered by an approved open source licence. Papers and associated computer programs that address a problem of contemporary interest in physics that cannot be solved by current software are particularly encouraged.
Computational Physics Papers (CP)
These are research papers in, but are not limited to, the following themes across computational physics and related disciplines.
mathematical and numerical methods and algorithms;
computational models including those associated with the design, control and analysis of experiments; and
algebraic computation.
Each will normally include software implementation and performance details. The software implementation should, ideally, be available via GitHub, Zenodo or an institutional repository.In addition, research papers on the impact of advanced computer architecture and special purpose computers on computing in the physical sciences and software topics related to, and of importance in, the physical sciences may be considered.

The journal is biased towards computer programs, and I submitted a computer-related paper. Initially, the review process was delayed, but it was expedited after urging. The submission volume is not large, and the acceptance rate is relatively high. Overall, it is quite good and falls under the second-tier category, offering good value for money.

Hello, may I ask how long the technical review process of this journal usually takes after submission? Is there a notification via email when it is transferred from the technical editor to the editor-in-chief or associate editor? Thank you very much!
