IOP Publishing
IOP Publishing (IOP) provides publications through which leading-edge scientific research is distributed worldwide. IOP Publishing is central to the Institute of Physics, a not-for-profit society. Any financial surplus earned by IOP Publishing goes to support science through the activities of the Institute.

IOP currently publishes seven fully open-access titles and offers a free service, eprintweb.org, that was developed in collaboration with arXiv.org. IOP makes a high percentage of its content available either under the gold open-access model or within a restricted timeframe through the ‘This months papers’ service.

IOP is also committed to making content available for free or at very low cost to researchers in developing countries through collaborations with organisations like INASP and eIFL.

Beyond its traditional journals programme, IOP makes high-value scientific information easily accessible through an evolving portfolio of community websites, magazines, conference proceedings and a multitude of electronic services.  IOP is focused on making the most of new technologies and is continually improving electronic interfaces to make it easier for researchers to find exactly what they need, when they need it, in the format that suits them best.
