Information Security

Confidentiality

IOP Editing Services respects the confidentiality of research. We receive unpublished manuscripts detailing groundbreaking research and ideas from the best researchers and universities around the world and we understand the confidentiality risks associated with submitting unpublished work. We adhere to a privacy policy that guarantees 100% confidentiality and allows researchers worldwide to submit their work to us with complete confidence.

  • All our editors sign confidentiality agreements and will not make any client information available to anyone outside IOP Editing Services, unless authorized in writing by you.
  • Your personal information (name, address, email address, contact number, etc.) will never be made available to any outside party.
  • All documents submitted are managed through a secure online job management system; your documents can only be viewed by your customer service manager and the editors/publication experts working on your assignment.
  • On request, we will also sign a confidentiality agreement with you before you submit your data to us.
