IOP Conference Series titles have published hundreds of proceedings, including volumes containing papers from Nobel Laureates. With close to 100 new volumes being added every year, containing several thousand papers, IOP Conference Series provides access to a rapidly growing and uniquely valuable archive of work presented and discussed at conferences worldwide. In addition to the papers themselves, the many tens of thousands of linked references provide a wealth of connections to articles published in many fields, providing researchers with an excellent source of literature searches.
Volumes are published via IOPscience, our journals platform. Through the following links you can view all published content for each proceedings title:
Using the IOP Conference Series proceedings search facility you can browse published proceedings by subject area, conference date and conference location. If you require a full article-level search across the entire IOP Publishing content then please visit IOPscience.
Yes they are. We ask for the peer review of papers published in the IOP Conference Series titles to be undertaken through processes administered by the organizers and proceedings editors. The detailed procedures will vary from event to event according to the custom and practice of each community. In recognition of the work done by the editors, and for the awareness of researchers using our proceedings, every volume published in the IOP Conference Series contains a clear statement of peer review, which has been agreed by the editors of each proceedings. A typical statement of peer review is as follows:
“All papers published in this volume of Journal of Physics: Conference Series have been peer reviewed through processes administered by the proceedings Editors. Reviews were conducted by expert referees to the professional and scientific standards expected of a proceedings journal published by IOP Publishing.”
For full details please read our Peer Review Policy.
Yes they do. If you browse through published volumes, looking at the the table of contents, you can see a “cited by” link, which shows the citations we have been able to detect and link to. Indeed, papers published as early as 2004 are attracting new citations: here is an example of that. By way of another example, here is an established volume where nearly every paper is cited.
Any author who takes the time to write a paper and contribute it to a proceedings will, of course, value these citations to their work. So, if you read a paper in the IOP Conference Series and feel able to cite it we are sure that the authors will welcome this. Despite the fact that the counting and treatment of citations to proceedings is not publicly measured though the Impact Factor statistic, this does not mean that there are no citations. Quite the opposite is true.
