|Publication charge policy||IOP’s article publication charges are set at the level necessary to cover associated publishing costs and sustain IOP’s services to the research community.

|Peer review policy||http://atom.iop.org/atom/help.nsf/WebHelp/WebPeerReviewPolicy?OpenDocument
All journals published by IOP Publishing (IOP) are peer reviewed and our journals are devoted to publishing high-quality, novel work in a timely fashion. For most IOP journals the peer-review is managed in-house, ensuring an efficient service. For every article that passes an initial assessment, (normally) two independent experts are selected to act anonymously as referees (“single blind”) and these referees submit reports which recommend whether the article should be accepted or rejected. If the referees give conflicting advice, a senior referee or Editorial Board member will normally act as an adjudicator.
