A new partnership to create the defining collection of ebooks in medical physics and biomedical engineering

The Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM) and IOP Publishing have come together to create the defining collection of ebooks in medical physics and biomedical engineering.

Drawing upon IOP’s award-winning innovation in digital publishing and the vast knowledge and experience of IPEM in this field, the Series in Physics and Engineering in Medicine and Biology will allow IPEM to enhance its mission to “advance physics and engineering applied to medicine and biology for the public good”.

About the series

In the initial first phase of the partnership, all ebooks will be approved and endorsed by the IPEM Editorial Advisory Board and published within the IOP Expanding Physics™ collection. During this time, the IPEM Series in Physics and Engineering in Medicine and Biology will be simultaneously developed to create a leading set of texts focussing on key areas within IPEM’s community including, but not limited to, clinical engineering, diagnostic radiology, informatics and computing, magnetic-resonance imaging, nuclear medicine, physiological measurement, radiation protection, radiotherapy, rehabilitation engineering, and ultrasound and non-ionising radiation.

Why ebooks?

By creating born-digital ebooks, authors are able to fully exploit ever-evolving digital publishing capabilities such as embedded video and audio. Multimedia and advanced features become an integral part of the ebook, offering an enhanced reading and research experience.

Why publish in Series in Physics and Engineering in Medicine and Biology?

  • Fully integrated platform — ebook and IPEM journal content in one place on IOPscience™
  • No DRM — designed specifically for electronic delivery, we allow simultaneous access for all users
  • E-reader compatibility — ebooks and chapters are published in HTML, PDF, MOBI and ePub3 formats
  • Rapid publication times — ebooks will be published within four months of acceptance of final manuscript
  • Multimedia content — watch embedded content without leaving the page
