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
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
   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
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
Selecting the journal
   Choose the right one for you
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
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
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
 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
 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
  Fully international refereeing is possible
   through the internet

   We still need more referees from China
     Account for 2.7% of the total referee reports


   Volunteer at http://referees.iop.org
      or contact the IOP journal where you have
       published
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

    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
 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
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:

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
