IOP Publishing for...


“Our relationship with IOP Publishing began in the spring of 2007. We were faced with the monumental task of shifting our publishing operation entirely for the first time ever. IOP presented a detailed transition plan for our journals, worked closely with us to make the transition easier than expected, and went beyond contractual obligations to make it a success. This excellent service and partnership has continued with the regular publication process of our journals, with rapid processing and publication, consistent online access support and technological enhancements. We view our partnership with IOP as a vital component in the fulfillment of the mission of the American Astronomical Society to enhance and share humanity’s understanding of the Universe.”

Kevin Marvel, Executive Officer, American Astronomical Society
