The camera ready paper should be in regular version (max 6 pages). Papers selected for publication in conference supporting journals should be extended to avoid duplication. All topics are open to academic, research and industry contribution, including policy development, technical report, and research in progress.
1. General requirements
The following lists the essential requirements for an article to be published in an IOP: Conference
• the page size should be A4;
• each page should have clear margins of 4cm (top), 2.5cm (left and right) and 2.7cm (bottom);
• pages should not contain page numbers, running heads or footlines;
• all articles must contain an abstract;
• in the PDF, all fonts should be embedded.
1.1. Layout of the title page
The title should be followed by a list of all authors’ names and their affiliations. The style for
the names is initials (no periods) followed by the family name. The authors’ affiliations follow
the author list. If there is more than one address then a superscripted number should come
at the start of each address; each author should also have a superscripted number or numbers
following their name to indicate which address, or addresses, are the appropriate ones for them.
E-mail addresses may be given for any or all of the authors.
The abstract follows the list of addresses. The abstract text should be indented 25 mm from
the left margin. As the abstract is not part of the text it should be complete in itself; no table
numbers, figure numbers, references or displayed mathematical expressions should be included.
It should be suitable for direct inclusion in abstracting services.
2. The text
The text of your article should start on the same page as the abstract. Any Acknowledgments
should be placed immediately after the last numbered section of the paper, and any appendices
after the Acknowledgments section. The length limit will be provided by the conference
3. Figures and tables
Figures and tables should be numbered serially and positioned (centred on the width of the
page) close to where they are mentioned in the text, not grouped together at the end. Each
figure and table should have a brief explanatory caption.
3.1. Colour figures
There are no restrictions on the use of colour in the online version of your article. However,
you should bear in mind that any print version of your article is likely to be in black and white
which may make coloured lines difficult to distinguish.
4. Supplementary data
We are happy for authors to submit supplementary data attachments to enhance the online
versions of published articles. Supplementary data enhancements typically consist of video
clips, animations or supplementary data such as data files, tables of extra information or extra
Online references will be linked to their original source or to the article within a secondary
service such as INSPEC or ChemPort wherever possible. To facilitate this linking extra care
should be taken when preparing reference lists.
A complete reference should provide enough information to locate the article concerned in
print or electronic form. If you are unsure of a particular journal’s abbreviated title it is best
to leave the title in full. The terms loc. cit. and ibid. should not be used.
5.1. References to printed journal articles
References to printed journal articles should typically contain:
• the authors, in the form: family name (only the first letter capitalized) followed by initials
with no periods after the initials;
• the year of publication;
• the article title (optional) in lower case letters, except for an initial capital;
• the journal title (italic and abbreviated). Parts denoted by letters should be inserted after
the journal in Roman type;
• the volume number in bold type;
• the article number or the page numbers.
