IOP Publishing (IOP) has unveiled the first titles in the company’s new eBooks publishing programme at this year’s Frankfurt Book Fair (9–13 October 2013).
IOP announced its entrance into the eBook market and a new partnership with Morgan & Claypool Publishers (M&C) at the book fair in 2012. One year later and IOP is returning to reveal both the company’s new eBooks platform and the very first published titles.
The IOP eBooks programme will initially comprise two complementary collections. These are IOP Expanding Physics and IOP Concise Physics (the latter produced in partnership with M&C).
IOP has now published the first two books in the IOP Expanding Physics collection and will publish the first Concise Physics titles imminently. A further 25 books are commissioned for publication across both collections in 2014. This list includes work from high-profile authors including Prof. Shlomo Havlin, Prof. David K Ferry, Prof. John Inglesfield, Prof. Beverly Berger and Prof. David Elliot.
The new book content has been fully integrated with IOPscience, the company’s online journals platform for seamless searching and exceptional discoverability. The programme has been built without DRM and provides multiple options for reading on different devices (HTML, PDF and ePub3) and includes embedded multimedia, interactive charting and MathML.
