Paper submission





Selected papers from the 19th ISHW and 16th IEA-RFP workshop will be published as a cluster issue of Plasma Physics and Controlled Fusion (PPCF).


IOP Publishing will manage the peer-review of the PPCF cluster issue. This means that manuscripts should be submitted electronically, directly to PPCF, and authors’ main contact throughout the reviewing process will be with the PPCF editorial office, contactable at ppcf@iop.org.



Articles must be submitted to PPCF by 31 December 2013. If articles are submitted after this date then we cannot guarantee that they will be considered for inclusion in the cluster issue. If it is possible for you to submit your article before this date then please do so.


Articles must be submitted electronically. You can submit in the following ways:


Via our online submission service at http://authors.iop.org/submit

Or by email to ppcf@iop.org  


On submission, please indicate that your paper is for the 19th ISHW and 16th RFP special issue.


Full details on the submission process can be found at http://www.iop.org/journals/guidelines




Page Limits

The page limit for articles in this issue is 8 journal pages. PPCF is published in US letter format, so each page is equivalent to around 900 words, including tables and figures (tables and figures occupy the equivalent of approximately 300 words each).



The requirements for cluster issue papers are the same as for regular submissions to PPCF (or any IOP journal). For full details of acceptable formats, please visit http://authors.iop.org



Once submitted, your paper will enter PPCF’s electronic refereeing system. Articles will be refereed to the journal’s usual high standards, and you may be asked to make amendments or revisions to your paper. 


If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the PPCF editorial team at ppcf@iop.org. We look forward to receiving your submission.
