About Journal of Physics: Conference Series (JPCS)

In 2004 IOP Publishing launched JPCS as a fast, flexible and affordable proceedings service to support and complement the existing portfolio of journals. Since this time the title has grown rapidly, having now published over 300 volumes, and attracting some of the most prestigious events in physics.
