JPhys+ is proud to support CDT-PV, a multicentre team across 7 Universities training highly skilled students in sustainable energy and photovoltaic technologies. Here we catch up with students Joel Smith and Rachael Greenhalgh and their recent training
This week’s Image of the Week comes from JPhysD article ‘Investigation of the effects of melt electrospinning parameters on the direct-writing fiber size using orthogonal design’, Feng-Li He et al 2017 J. Phys. D: Appl. Phys. 50 425601. Melt electrospinning is an effective and simple… Read More ›
In this paper Jeffrey Kuan uses symmetry of quantum groups to prove duality for the two-component asymmetric simple exclusion process. He spoke to Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical as about his Publisher’s Pick Who are you? Jeffrey Kuan,… Read More ›
This week’s Image of the Week is taken from JPhysD article Microfluidic angle of repose test for Pickering emulsions, L A Chacon and J C Baret 2017 J. Phys. D: Appl. Phys. 50 39LT04. In this paper the authors propose a microfluidic version of the… Read More ›
The norms in scientific publishing are evolving and publishers are taking note. IOP’s new journal embraces open access and objective peer review assessment to address the needs of today’s researchers.
This week the Ig Nobel Prizes were awarded; for achievements that first make you laugh, then make you think. The Ig Nobel prize for physics was awarded to a study On the Rheology of Cats, but these feline house guests… Read More ›
We’re asking our referees about why they do it, and how they would improve peer review.
IOPP and the scientific publishing community in general rely hugely on the peer review community and peer review is critical to the scientific process. These are the people who ensure quality and academic integrity is maintained across our journal portfolio… Read More ›
Peer Review Week 2017 has the central theme of transparancy. Find out more about our appeals procedure here.
Is there really any difference between peer reviewing papers for a conference or for a journal? It depends on whom you are talking to. The Editors of a journal will tell you to put the utmost care and effort into… Read More ›
Take a look at our animated tour of the peer review process at IOP Publishing.
It goes without saying that finding answers to questions raised by the Standard Model and General Relativity remains a huge part of theoretical physics. Recent developments in bimetric theory, a topical review published in Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical is the second most most highly cited article in the journal from 2016. Here we talk to one of the authors of the review, Angnis Schmidt-May, from Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, to discover why this field is so active and what discoveries she’d like to see.
Here at IOP Publishing it’s been a busy year since the last Peer Review Week!
In their recent paper in Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical researchers from China and South Korea investigate a Separability criterion for three-qubit states with a four dimensional norm. Kyung Hoon Han spoke to JPhys+ to explain more about their… Read More ›
The interface between quantum information and thermodynamics is currently a very active area. The topical review The role of quantum information in thermodynamics — a topical review, published in Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical is the most highly cited 2016 article in the journal. Here we talk to one of the authors of the review, Marcus Huber, from Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information Vienna, to discover why this field is so active and where he thinks it’s heading.
For our image this week we’ve taken an image from Covergent chaos, a recent paper published in Journal of Physics A. Marc Pradas, Alain Pumir, Greg Huber and Michael Wilkinson study the instabilities and convergence of trajectories revealing and commenting… Read More ›
