500 titles now available to a broader audience

UK-based IOP Publishing has extended access to its ebook program with the launch of its new online bookstore. For the first time, all the titles in the collection will be available to purchase individually in one place. The IOP ebooks collection brings together digital publishing with leading authors from across the physical sciences. Available in a range of digital formats with multimedia features, the program now comprises 500 titles in 16 subject areas spanning physics, astronomy, materials science and the biomedical sciences.

While IOP ebooks are already available in university libraries around the world, the new online platform enables those not affiliated with an academic institution to gain direct access. Books can be purchased both in print and digital formats.

Associate director David McDade said,  “Our ebook programme is thriving. More titles are constantly being added to our portfolio and demand for the content continues to rise, so extending the reach to individual buyers via our online bookstore was the natural next step.  The site is simple and intuitive, delivering a fast and flexible solution that allows our readers, authors and society partner members to purchase titles individually in the format that works best for them.”

IOP Publishing provides publications through which 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.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
