Journal of Physics: Conference Series author receives “outstanding paper” accolade
During celebrations to mark the 10th anniversary of IOP Publishing’s Moscow office, Nataliya Chistyakova and her co-authors from Moscow State University were presented with the award for most outstanding paper published in an IOP journal during 2010. The paper, entitled Mössbauer study of isomorphous substitutions in Cu2Fe1-xCuxSnS4 and Cu2Fe1-xZnxSnS4 series, was published in JPCS Volume 217 as part of the proceedings of the International Conference on the Applications of the Mössbauer Effect (ICAME 2009). This paper can be found online (free to read and download), along with the other 146 papers published as part of this proceedings volume. On winning the prize, Nataliya Chistyakova commented on the speed and efficiency with which her paper was published.
LT26 proceedings to be published in JPCS
We are pleased to announce that JPCS has finalized an agreement to publish the proceedings from the 26th International Conference on Low Temperature Physics (LT26), held in Beijing from the 10-17 August 2011. JPCS published LT25 in 2009, and we are delighted to work with the community again on what will undoubtedly be another valuable and high-quality proceedings. All papers will be open access and are expected to be published in early 2012.
Annual downloads exceed 2 million
IOP Conference Series received more than 2.3 million article downloads during 2010, up 50% on the 2009 figure. This is a significant milestone and reflects the growing readership and prominence of the Series within the academic community. IOP Conference Series is open access, and papers are highly visible thanks to inclusion within several A+I databases. This means papers remain accessible in perpetuity and IOP Conference Series represents an excellent permanent repository for conference papers.
EES and MSE now indexed in Scopus
We are delighted to announce that IOP Conference Series: Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) and IOP Conference Series: Earth and Environmental Science (EES) are now indexed by Scopus, the world’s largest abstract and citation database for peer-reviewed research, alongside JPCS. All existing volumes of the journals will be indexed and subscribers to Scopus will be able to search the entire archive. This is a further boost to the visibility of JPCS, MSE and EES, which are already indexed in Compendex and Inspec, and helps ensure that your proceedings reach the widest possible audience in academia and industry. In addition, Polymer Library, the No 1 source for literature on plastics, rubber, polymeric composites and adhesives, will now be indexing MSE.
