Peer Review Process Link
Peer Review Policy
All journals published by IOP Publishing (IOP) are peer reviewed and our journals are devoted to publishing high-quality work in a timely fashion. For most IOP journals the peer-review is managed in-house, ensuring an efficient service. For every article that passes an initial assessment, (normally) two independent experts are selected to act anonymously as referees (our default process is “double anonymous”) and these referees submit reports which recommend whether the article should be accepted or rejected. If the referees give conflicting advice, a senior referee or Editorial Board member will normally act as an adjudicator. An increasing number of our journals now enable ‘transparent peer review reports’, meaning that the reports can be published, usually anonymously, alongside articles.
