IOP Publishing launches first Spanish language site

29 Oct 2010Bristol, UK

IOP Publishing has today announced the launch of its first Spanish language website to help create better access to its services in Latin America.

The site has been launched in response to research by IOP publishing among scientists, librarians, and students in Latin America about scholarly communications. “Latin America is an important market for us and we wanted to be sure our customers in this region felt sufficiently represented on the web” said Sharice Collins, Vice President of Marketing, IOP Publishing, Inc. “This new site is a dedicated forum for communication about scientific, librarian, or school related issues, and provides an online home for the Latin American physics community.”

The site will have information about upcoming scientific meetings in Latin America, the most recent scientific research coming out of the continent, and ways that researchers in Latin America are partnering with IOP.

The site is now live at www.latinoamerica.iop.org.

This is the third own language site launched by IOP Publishing in 2010 and follows the earlier launches of china.iop.org and japan.iop.org.
