Group and division guidelines
The following guidelines are useful for representative members of IOP Groups and Divisions who submit content for the IOP's website.
IOP Groups and Divisions have up to eleven pages.
Standard provided pages are:
Optional additional pages are:
- News page (can include optional sub-page ‘newsletter’)
- Prize page (can include related sub sections, e.g. past winners)
- History page
- Members network page (link to MyIOP)
- Useful links page
- An additional two pages as desired by the group/division
The landing page acts as an introductory page for the Group/Division. It should usually feature a short introduction (around 200 words) about the Group/Division and preferably an image related to the group/division’s area of interest.
The landing page can also feature a noticeboard.
The committee page features a list of all the members of your committee. For each member, their name, job title and employer may be listed. It is also possible to add a photograph of each member, and committees are encouraged to do so.
Please be aware that the information listed for each member is automatically synchronized with information from the membership database. Any updates needed to this information must be requested by the individual member. Please contact Member services for help with this.
In addition to the committee page, the contact page features the contact details for the Group/Division officers. As well as listing names, job titles and employer names, a contact address, telephone and email address is also listed. Please note that we will not display private address/telephone details or any details which you have specifically requested to remain private.
The calendar page features a calendar that advertises all events organised or co-sponsored by the Group, along with any related events which the Group/Division committee wishes to highlight.
This information feeds in to the combined group and division calendar as well as the main IOP calendar.
Any older copies of the Group’s newsletter can be uploaded to the Group’s page on MyIOP by a Group representative.
Groups can also choose to feature key stories/articles from their newsletter on this page in the form of a ‘news column’. In this instance, the page will be renamed to ‘News’ and a sub-section will be added to the page specifically for the newsletter.
The news section can also feature an archive, containing stories/articles from the past two years.
Please note, that Groups may also keep this information along with older archive information on their MyIOP pages if they wish. Groups can update their MyIOP pages directly; this will not happen automatically.
If the group/division presents more than one prize, a sub-section can be set up on this page for each prize. Sub-sections can also be set up to contain information such as past winners, eligibility details, etc.
Members network page
This page will feature a direct link to the MyIOP network for the group.
Group committees can edit their own MyIOP pages. Please contact the Science Support Officer for your Group login details. If you have any queries regarding individual login details or how to use MyIOP, please email Member services.
It can also feature links to pages that already exist on the IOP website. Please note that this section cannot feature any links to files.
The additional pages can have links to file downloads.
