The Institute of Physics is the professional body and learned society for physics in the UK and Ireland, inspiring people to develop their knowledge, understanding and enjoyment of physics.
IOP Publishing is a society-owned scientific publisher, providing impact, recognition and value for the scientific community. We work closely with researchers, librarians and partners worldwide to produce academic journals, books and conference series. Our aim is to cover the latest and best research in the physical sciences and beyond.

A society publisher

As a subsidiary of the Institute of Physics, any surplus made by IOP Publishing goes directly to the Institute to assist their mission to help everyone build their knowledge of physics and to provide professional support for physicists. IOP Publishing supports global schemes such as INASP and EIFL to promote the dissemination of and engagement with science in developing and transition countries.

Supporting open science

IOP Publishing is also a strong supporter of open science and open access to scientific research. We published more than 66,000 open access articles and conference proceedings papers in 2019. Our journals portfolio includes a rapidly growing number of fully open access journals, with four launched in 2018 and five in 2019. The OA programme includes the first fully open access journal in physics. The majority of subscription journals published by IOP Publishing and its partners also offer a hybrid open access option.
