6 Jul 2011Moscow, Russia

The outstanding contribution of Russian researchers to the worldwide scientific community was recently celebrated at a reception to mark the 10th anniversary of IOP Publishing’s (IOP) editorial office in the P.N. Lebedev Institute, Moscow.

The event brought together a number of leading Russian scientists and an award was presented for an outstanding paper published in 2010 in an IOP journal.

The award was won by Nataliya Chistyakova and her co-authors from Moscow State University for their paper, “M Össbauer study of isomorphous substitutions in Cu2Fe 1-xCuxSnS4 and Cu2Fe 1-xZnxSnS4 series”, published in Journal of Physics: Conference Series.

On winning the prize, Nataliya Chistyakova commented on the speed and efficiency through which her paper was published in Journal of Physics: Conference Series.

On the night, a host of leading members of the Russian scientific community, including V Rubakov and A Slavnov, were joined by IOP staff to celebrate this latest landmark in the special relationship IOP holds with the Russian scientific community, that spans over twenty years.

IOP’s first Russian editorial office was opened in 1990 in Saint-Petersburg, and the editorial teams in both cities have worked closely with hundreds of researchers to help them showcase their work to the worldwide scientific community and raise their international profile.

“We are very excited to see the number of published papers from Russian authors increase every year as the research of Russian scientists increasingly gets the attention of the international audience it deserves. We are very pleased that by publishing with IOP and through the support of the editorial teams here in Russia we can help researchers get worldwide recognition”, said Dr Nina Couzin, Editorial Business Manager of IOP Publishing.

Dr Margarita Man’ko, Coordinator of the Moscow office, said, “The editorial office at the Lebedev provides authors with guidance on how to write and submit a paper to get it accepted in an international journal. IOP publishes over 60 prestigious journals that span the whole of physics and are an excellent publishing choice for researchers who want to increase visibility and impact of their work.”

Going forward, IOP Publishing will continue to work closely with Russian scientists as part of the company’s ongoing commitment to providing an outstanding publishing service to scientists worldwide.
