IOP Publishing provides a range of journals, ebooks, magazines, conference proceedings and websites for the scientific community. These products and services enable researchers and research organisations to reach the widest possible audience for their research. We combine the culture of a learned society with global reach and highly efficient and effective publishing systems and processes.

Beyond publication in peer-reviewed journals, we make the latest scientific information easily accessible to a wider audience through a portfolio of websites, magazines, conference proceedings and a multitude of electronic services. Our range of websites includes a site dedicated to showcasing research from the Asia-Pacific region as well as local-language websites for Japan, China and Latin America. We exploit new technology and our understanding of how researchers work to deliver scientific information in the formats that users need and in ways that maximise recognition for authors.
