IOP Publishing (IOP) has announced its entrance into the book market as part of a long-term strategy to expand its support to the research community.
The ebook programme will provide an additional content channel for authors looking to publish with a society publisher and has been designed to meet the demands of today's research community by delivering authoritative physics books.
The new portfolio will cover topics across the physical sciences and will support the needs of physicists as well as researchers from other disciplines who are working in interdisciplinary areas of research.
At the same time, IOP has also announced a strategic partnership with Morgan and Claypool Publishers (M&C) to build a dedicated collection as part of the overall ebook initative.
Olaf Ernst, Commercial Director of IOP Publishing, said: "It is a natural fit for IOP, through its close relationship with the physics community, to launch a high-quality ebook programme that will complement its existing journals portfolio.
“We have a shared vision with M&C to serve the research community by delivering high-quality content through an innovative publishing approach.”
