To showcase its strong performance in 2018, and explain how it plans to respond to the challenges facing scientific publishing, IOP Publishing (IOPP) has launched  its annual report for 2018.

IOPP recorded an excellent all-round performance in 2018, thanks to the strong relationships its people have developed with its customers – authors, referees, editorial boards, librarians and partner organisations.

The report shows how IOPP uses this emphasis on customer experience, as well as its global reach and focus on operational excellence to provide impact, recognition and value for the physical science communities.

Alongside that, as a specialist publisher, IOPP must manage the multiple expectations of researchers, funders, and librarians with ever-greater efficiency, while providing the same high quality of service to all its customers and partners.

The annual report sets out how IOPP is responding to challenges in scientific publishing: increasing the visibility of the research it publishes, through both technical means and an expansion of its open access publishing; increasing impact and recognition for its authors; and supporting the scientific mission of its partners by providing operational excellence and guidance across all stages of the publishing cycle.
