Increasing access, transparency and inclusivity across the physical sciences
We believe conducting science more openly can accelerate scientific discovery. IOP Publishing is committed to supporting the wider adoption of open practices across the physical sciences and we call this approach open physics.
We have made all articles relating to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) free to read. View full list here

How do we support
Our contribution to open physics combines an evolving programme of publications, activities and policies that we believe will not only encourage and support increased access, transparency and inclusivity but do so in ways and timeframes that will serve the needs of the global physical science community.
As a learned society publisher, IOP Publishing is embedded in the physical science community, ensuring that our contribution to open physics will develop in dialogue and collaboration with the groups most central to its successful implementation, including physical scientists, librarians, partner societies and funders.
