How to prepare for your Paper

IOP Conference Series uses author-supplied PDFs for all online 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.

  • Paper length is 6 - 8 pages
  • Paper size is European A4
  • Margins are 4cm (top), 2.5cm (left and right) and 2.7cm (bottom)
  • The paper includes the author name and affiliation (full address including country)
  • There are no page numbers, or headers and footers, within the paper
  • The PDF is free of formatting errors (e.g. corrupt equations, missing or low-resolution figures), since conversion from Word to PDF can introduce formatting errors
  • 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
  • Figures are placed within the text, not collected at the end of the document
  • A thorough proofread is conducted to check the standard of English and ensure wording is clear and concise
