Electronic Affiliate membership
Electronic affiliate members enjoy a wide range of services delivered by the IOP through its various web sites and a wealth of opportunities to engage with other physicists around the world through the on-line members’ network.
IOP electronic affiliate membership allows you to keep up with developments in the world of physics through our websites and digital access magazines.
Working with national physical societies where these exist, electronic affiliate membership is another way to enhance the support their members gain.
How to apply
You can apply online. Please be sure to read all the information about this class of membership before applying.
Electronic affiliate membership is offered to members of IOP's partner societies either entirely free to countries on the World Bank’s list of low income economies, or for £10 per year to those in middle income economies.
If your national society has not signed up as a partner society and is interested in doing so, please email Beth Taylor, Director, Communications and External Relations. If you are unsure if your national society has signed an agreement, here is a list of eligible national societies.
