LaTeX template for journal articles

LaTeX guidelines and class file

The text of articles may be submitted in any common variant of TeX including LaTeX2e, REVTeX, AmSTeX, AmSLaTeX and plain TeX (including pdfTeX/pdfLaTeX). A LaTeX2e class file together with full documentation is available to help authors prepare articles for consideration by IOP journals, but it is not essential to format your paper in this way or to use this class file. Any common variant of TeX is acceptable. Note that there is an incompatibility between amsmath.sty and iopart.cls. If your article relies on commands in amsmath.sty that are not available in iopart.cls, you may wish to consider using a different class file.

The files are available in zipped format and Unix tar gzipped format:
