  6. QUALITY ASSESSMENT CRITERIA FOR IOP JOURNALS • Q1 Makes major contributions to the advancement of the subject world-wide (top 15%) • Q2 Good quality work - original and internationally competitive • Q3 Borderline work of limited interest • Q4 Low quality work - adds little or no new knowledge • Q5 Poor work, clearly unsuitable • Q1 or Q2 papers are expected • Q3 papers unlikely to be accepted • Q4 or Q5 papers will be rejected

  9. What determine your quality • Original work, novel and significant • Interest to the community • Have sound motivation and purpose • Not previously published • Not under consideration for publication in any other journal or any other form • Scientific quality not quantity of papers • Ethical code: • Research results – true, properly recorded • Authorship practices – who can be your co-authors

  10. Helpful techniques for writing your paper • Focus on new and important research results • Make sure the language is clear and precise, especially your conclusions • Ensure that figures and tables are clear • Ensure that the paper is of the right length

  11. Something to avoid • Presenting new but trivial or obvious results • Making unsubstantiated conclusions • Burying new results beneath too much scene-setting • Recapping of findings already published • Presenting incremental research • Being long winded – keep short • ‘Flowery’ language • Abbreviations and jargon • Speculation or anecdotes – keep to the facts • A ‘gimmicky’ title • makes wild, unjustified claims • Poor or incomplete references • Poor quality figures • Incomplete data • Don’t cover up or ‘fudge’ the data

  12. More helpful tips • Allow time for rewriting • Use figures instead of tables • Ask a colleague to read and comment on an early draft • Check the structure of the paper: • Title – proper and complete • Abstract – more details, key words, PACS • Introduction – history, why, what you have done • Method – details and standard • Results and Discussion – fact and more • Conclusion – what you have achieved • References – objective and up-to-date

  13. Selecting the journal • Choose the right one for you

  14. 电子投稿Electronic Submission • 对所有IOPP期刊,可直接电子邮件投稿至 • E-mail: mingfang.lu@iop.org • 在标题栏中用英文注明电子投稿及所投期刊 标准格式,如: Electronic submission to JPCM 稿件(附件)+英文投稿信(Cover Letter) 适用于所有IOP期刊,简单、快速、可靠! • 或网上直投: Online submission

  15. Process at the journal • Via esub@iop.org or Online – temporary ID, but unable to track your paper, e.g. CM/T123052/FTC/29135/ • Editor acknowledges your paper, assign a ref number, e.g. CM/337116/PAP/183301 • Pre-screening process • Editor selects referees for the paper • Referees send their reports back to the Editor • Editor makes decision based on referee reports • Adjudicator is selected if the reports are conflicting

  16. What referees do for your paper? • Independent assessment by experts in the field • Referees provide constructive criticism and feedback on your paper • A ‘filter’ for scientific quality control • Publishing a paper in a peer-reviewed journal gives more credibility to your work than if you post it on your own web site • Peer review is an essential part of publishing in a journal or obtaining a grant

  17. Referees’ assessment: Scientific Quality • Scientific merit: significant new results and originality • Accurate and correct • Sufficient discussion of the context of the work, and suitable referencing • Suitable material for the Journal

  18. Referees’ assessment: Presentation • Title: is it adequate/appropriate? • Abstract: is it complete by itself and suitable for direct inclusion in an abstracting service? • Diagrams, tables, and captions: are they clear and essential? • Text and mathematics: are they brief but still clear? • Conclusion: does it summarise what has been learned and why it is interesting and useful? • References: objective and up-to-date • Clear writing and communication of ideas, readability and discussion of concepts

  19. International Refereeing • Fully international refereeing is possible through the internet • We still need more referees from China • only ~1% of referee reports • Volunteer at http://referees.iop.org • or contact the IOP journal where you have published

  20. Responding to referees’ comments • Read referees’ report and put away for a day! • Read them again! • Respond to each and every comment specifically • Keep a list of your changes • Where you disagree, explain why • If referee misses a point it is not necessarily his/her fault • Be polite! • Prepare a detailed covering letter with your response

  21. If your paper is rejected • Do not despair: treat referees’ comments as a free expert advice • You may be able to re-write your article taking into account the suggestions of the referees and re-submit it • Note: If you re-submit the paper to any IOP journal, you need to add enough significant new results in it • If you think the review was unfair, appeal to the journal by sending a letter and explaining why you think your work did not receive a fair treatment

  22. If your paper is accepted • Great - celebrate! • The journal will expect you to check your proofs rapidly • Nominate another person if you are unavailable • Give one copy of proofs to somebody else to read • Reply to editor’s queries
