What we do with your article after acceptance

After acceptance, your article will be typeset into our house style (see our Style guide for journal articles) using the source files that you have provided. This includes conversion of figure files and sizing them to fit the journal template. A proof will then be produced, which you will be asked to check.

Most IOP Publishing journals offer the option to make the Accepted Manuscript version available within 24 hours of acceptance. At this point, you can start to promote your paper to your peers (see the ‘After publication’ section for more details). For further information on the ‘Accepted Manuscript’ process, and which of our journals offer this option, please see our Accepted Manuscripts page.

Please note that, in exceptional circumstances, we reserve the right to withdraw an article at any time before publishing.
