Welcome to IOP Publishing

Working closely with the global scientific community has been at the heart of our publishing activity for more than a century.

With a portfolio including journals, books, conference proceedings and science news resources, we focus on physics, materials science, biosciences, astronomy and astrophysics, environmental sciences, mathematics and education. IOP Publishing also publishes on behalf of other scientific organisations and represents their needs and those of their members.

With over 400 staff in locations across the world, we support researchers, librarians and societies in their endeavours.

IOP Publishing – delivering impact, recognition and value to the scientific community.


We publish academic journals, as well as books and conference proceedings.

All our academic publications are hosted on IOPscience, a platform specifically designed to help readers access scientific, technical and medical content quickly and easily.

We also provide expert science journalism through Physics World, a trusted source of science news.



We work closely with researchers for the benefit of science and scientific research dissemination. Find out how we’re meeting their needs on our dedicated Publishing Support site.


IOP Publishing is proud to have a close working relationship with thousands of librarians around the world. Visit Librarians Support for help, information and useful resources.


Numerous scientific societies and organisations have entrusted us with their journals, books and magazines.
