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.
