Paper submission guideline

Accepted papers after the peer-review will be published in the Journal of Physics: Conference Series (JPCS).

Guide for the abstract submission: Abstract should be 150–300 words and it should reflect the actual work, which authors are going to present as results in the paper. Paper size A4 (2 cm margin all sides), double line spacing, 12 point font size, Times New Roman font, and the abstract should be left aligned.

The paper title must include phrase/keyword "Francis-99." This help to index the database, citation and searching papers associated with the Francis-99 test cases. The paper title should less than 100 characters with spaces.

The third Francis-99 workshop includes two different test cases, i.e., Hydrofoil and Turbine. If the authors want to work on both test cases, they may submit two separate papers. Authors are also permitted to combine both test cases into one paper. However, methodology, results and conclusion should be clearly distinguishable in the paper.

Guide for the full-length paper submission:

Abstract should be 100–200 words. IOP Conference Series uses author-supplied PDFs for all online and print publication. Authors are requested to prepare their papers using Microsoft Word or LaTeX, according to the guidelines and templates, and then convert these files to PDF. It is important to ensure that when you submit your paper, it is in its final form ready for publication, and has been thoroughly proofread. IOP do not copy edit or reformat papers and will not send out author proofs prior to publication. Post-publication changes are not permitted, so please ensure that your paper has been checked for errors. By submitting a paper an author and all co-authors are assumed to agree with the terms of the IOP Proceedings Licence.

As a summary, please ensure the following:

  1. Paper size is European A4.
  2. Margins are 4cm (top), 2.5cm (left and right) and 2.7cm (bottom).
  3. The paper includes the author name and affiliation (full address including country).
  4. There are no page numbers, or headers and footers, within the paper.
  5. The PDF is free of formatting errors (e.g. corrupt equations, missing or low-resolution figures), since conversion from Word to PDF can introduce formatting errors.
  6. Text is single spaced, not double spaced.
  7. The PDF file is editable and not password protected.
  8. All pages are portrait (landscape pages should be rotated).
  9. Reference lists are checked for accuracy. References can only be linked via Crossref if they are correct and complete.
  10. Figures are placed within the text, not collected at the end of the document.
  11. A thorough proofread is conducted to check the standard of English and ensure wording is clear and concise.

Submit Abstract and Manuscript by Email: Chirag Trivedi.
