Preparing your paper

IOP Conference Series uses author-supplied PDFs for all online and print publication. Authors are asked to prepare their papers using Microsoft Word or LaTeX, according to the journal guidelines and templates, and then convert these files to PDF. Full instructions on preparing your paper, along with templates, can be found on the IOP Conference Series website.

It is important to ensure that when you submit your paper, it is in its final form ready for publication, and has been thoroughly proofread. IOP do not copyedit papers and will not send out author proofs prior to publication. Please note: post-publication changes are not usually permitted, unless there are exceptional circumstances, so please ensure your paper has been checked for errors.

    • There are no page numbers, or headers and footers, within the paper.

    • Text is single spaced, not double spaced.
    • The PDF file is editable and not password protected.
    • All pages are portrait (landscape pages should be rotated).
    • Reference lists are checked for accuracy. References can only be linked via CrossRef if they are correct and complete.
