Network licensing

Educational Institutions

Institutional rate subscriptions include online access to IOP Publishing journals at no extra cost.

Electronic access to subscribed journals may be networked to all physical sites that are legally part of a single educational institution, providing they are in the same country. If you have any queries about networking, please contact custserv@iop.org.

For the purposes of this policy, autonomous institutions that are part of a State or Regional educational system are each deemed to be single educational institutions. In this context, 'autonomous institutions' means universities and colleges that are funded by the State and are part of State or Regional systems, but are managed, controlled and administered locally.

Two or more legally separate educational institutions, including autonomous institutions that are part of a State system, may form a consortium to purchase electronic access to all IOP Publishing journals for an annual license fee.

For more information about the IOP Publishing's Consortium Agreement, please contact custserv@iop.org

Non-educational Institutions and Commercial Organizations

Institutional subscription rates apply to non-educational institutions and commercial organizations, and include online access to IOP Publishing journals at no extra cost.

Electronic access to subscribed journals covers the subscribing site only. If a non-educational institution or commercial organization wishes to network subscribed journals to another physical location, which is part of the same organization and which is more than 5 km distant from the subscribing site, it must obtain a national Network License.

Organizations that wish to network subscribed journals to sites in other countries must obtain an international Network License.

For more information about national and international Network Licenses, please contact custserv@iop.org.

IOP Publishing reserves the right to change or amend this policy without prior notice.
