New IOP platform - IOPScience

| No Comments

The Institute of Physics (IOP) has a new platform for IOP journals called IOPScience. The new platform offers more searching and refining capability as well as content customization through a personal account. Here is IOP's list of new functionality and content:

  • Speed up your research: find relevant content quickly with enhanced search filtering
  • Save time: re-run previous searches, tagging your favorite articles
  • Keep up to date: receive RSS feeds and email alerts when new content is published
  • Access more content: view articles plus preprints and news
  • Interact and share: embrace social bookmarking to share articles
  • Discover related research: explore relevant articles based on subject classification codes
  • Make it personal: customize your alerts, save articles of interest, and view newly published articles within your subject areas

IOP-Science-Express-100x191px.gifAlong with the new platform, IOP has also developed two new free iPhone apps. Physicsworld.com newsflash gives you access to the latest news from physicsworld.com on your iPhone or iPod Touch. IOPscience express allows you to search and download up to 20 IOP journal articles per month on your iPhone or iPod touch. Both are available in the App Store on your device, but you can read more at http://iopscience.iop.org/page/version

Starting March 16th, IOP's Electronic Journals website and links will be redirected to IOPScience. Members of the Princeton University community should have no trouble accessing Princeton's electronic subscriptions to IOP Journals through IOPScience. Please contact me (wdressel@princeton.edu) your subject librarian if you have any problems with the transition.
