IOP Publishing’s (IOP) 2015 Product Catalogue and prices are now available on our Librarian Channel.
The Product Catalogue is available online to allow IOP to reduce its environmental impact. However, a print/save-on-demand function is available for customers wanting a printed version.
Titles going electronic only
Beginning in 2015, nine journals in the IOP portfolio are going electronic only. This decision has been prompted by a decline in demand for the print editions of these journals, while the number of electronic-only subscribers has significantly grown. Five of our medical journals as well as titles published in partnership with the American Astronomical Society (AAS) are affected:
Libraries that currently subscribe to the print and electronic versions of these journals will be offered an electronic-only renewal for 2015.

Invoicing for The Japan Society of Applied Physics titles
From 2015, existing IOPscience extra or IOPcorporate subscribers will no longer have to renew their Japanese Journal of Applied Physics (JJAP) and Applied Physics Express (APEX) subscriptions separately. Subscribers will be invoiced a single amount for IOPscience extra or IOPcorporate, which will include the JJAP and APEX value. Subscribers no longer need to take out a separate stand-alone JJAP or APEX subscription.
Subscription invoices will automatically incur a reduction in price where research articles have been partially funded by SCOAP3 in Chinese Physics C and the Journal of Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics. The relevant discount applied to the 2015 prices is in accordance with the percentages agreed with the SCOAP3 consortia. For further information on SCOAP3, visit IOPscience.
The IOP ebooks programme, launched in 2013 and named a finalist in the ALPSP Innovation in Publishing Awards, comprises two complementary collections. The 2015 release is now available for permanent purchase and includes 20 IOP Expanding Physics TM titles and 40 IOP Concise PhysicsTM titles.
New materials journals
Pack Z subscribers will automatically gain access to these titles through their 2015 subscription.
