Instruction for full paper submission

The proceedings of the 32nd IAHR Symposium on hydraulic machinery and systems will be published in the Open Access IOP Conference Series: Earth and Environmental Science (EES), which is part of the IOP Conference Series. All papers published in IOP Conference Series are fully citable and will be free to download in perpetuity upon publication.

Preparing your paper

IOP Conference Series uses author-supplied PDFs for all online and print publications. According to the journal guidelines and templates, authors are asked to prepare their papers using Microsoft Word or LaTeX, and then convert these files to PDF. Full instructions on preparing your paper and templates can be found on the IOP Conference Series Website.

It is important to ensure that while submission, the paper is in its final form, ready for publication, and has been thoroughly proofread. IOP does not copy edit papers and will not send out author proofs before publication. Please note: post-publication changes are not usually permitted unless there are exceptional circumstances; therefore, it is requested to check your paper for errors.

Paper format

When preparing your paper, ensure that you follow the author guidelines, which are as follows:

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