IOP Publishing joins Researcher to keep academics on top of leading physics research

Readers of IOP Publishing (IOPP) journals can now easily keep up to date with the latest papers in their fields, thanks to Researcher.

Researcher is a free mobile and web app that gives users a social media-style feed of the latest papers, which they can filter with keywords according to their areas of interest.

As well as filters, Researcher allows users to share papers and data they discover with their peers and colleagues.

Claire Webber, associate director of content and engagement marketing at IOPP, said: “Researcher is a brilliant way to condense all the latest research in a precise area of focus into one simple feed. Keeping up to date with new studies is clearly essential for academics, but they are often short on time.

“With the huge volumes of papers being published daily, we want to make it as easy as possible for them to see the most relevant content from our journals, freeing up their time to concentrate on their own research. Researcher offers the perfect solution for this.”

Olly Cooper, CEO of Researcher said: “Researcher makes it easy for scientists and academics to stay up to date, so they can concentrate on moving their research forward. Researcher helps scientists and researchers create personalised social media style ‘feeds’ with content from specific journals so they stay abreast of publications in their niche areas of research.

“It aggregates over 16,000 peer-reviewed journals, preprints and research from leading publishers and societies and you can now discover the latest papers from IOPP. Simply download the Researcher app on iOS, Android or use the web version and search for IOPP titles to follow them.”
