What determine your quality

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

    • Authorship practices


Helpful techniques for writing your paper

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


Something to avoid

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


More helpful tips

More helpful tips

  • Allow time for rewriting

  • Use figures instead of tables

  • Ask a colleague to read and comment on an early draft

  • Avoid using too much jargon

  • Check the structure of the paper:

    • Title and Abstract

    • Introduction

    • Method

    • Results and Discussion

    • Conclusion

    • References

  • 或网上直投: Online submission


Process at the journal

Process at the journal

  • Editor acknowledges your paper, assign a ref number, e.g. CM/232162/PAP/260501

  • 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


What referees do for your paper

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


Referees assessment scientific quality

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


Referees assessment presentation

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


International refereeing

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


Responding to referees comments

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


If your paper is rejected

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


If your paper is accepted

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

    IOP北京代表处提供稿件预审和免费英文修改服务

    • 国内稿件质量不齐, 低质量论文对高水平论文带来不利影响,造成多种浪费 —时间、声誉

    • 对稿件内容水平和写作把关,增加可读性

    • 国际审稿时加速审稿过程, 增加可接受性,提高命中率

    • 整体上提高学术声誉


    How to get published in iop journals

    被拒稿的国内论文主要存在的一些问题

    • 科学水平不高,追求论文数量。

    • 写作水平和英文水平欠缺,不能正确表达研究结果和对其进行充分的讨论,难以达到学术交流目的,甚至使审稿人难以相信你的研究结果 – 不一定是偏见。

    • 内容不适合所投期刊,如JPCM强调基础凝聚态物理,因此,属于材料科学的论文难以被发表

    • 关于如何发表高水平研究论文,请参见:http://www.iop.org/iopbeijing/howto_get_published_in_chinese.html

    How to get published in iop journals

    几点建议

    • 做好研究工作是写好论文的基础

    • 利用互联网和电子期刊全面检索本领域的研究进展

    • 提早全面准备写论文,不要等到最后

    • 采用标准格式建立参考文献的电子数据库如Excel文件方式,方便以后检索和引用

    • 在研究过程中尽可能采用标准方式记录研究数据,争取形成数据—图表—引用的自动数据链

    • 提早训练写作英语(或其他外语)科技论文,检索一些本领域的范文论文,反复熟记其语言写作特点和语言用法,克服写作自己论文时的语言障碍, 但切记不可照搬!

    • 多与老师、同学或同事讨论,认真思考不同的观点

    • 写好第一篇外语论文,不要急于投稿
