IOP Publishing joins open abstract initiative | Research Information

“IOP Publishing (IOPP) has joined the Initiative for Open Abstracts (I4OA), a collaboration between publishers, infrastructure organisations, librarians, and researchers to promote the open availability of abstracts. 

IOPP will deposit abstracts of their scholarly communications with Crossref, the not-for-profit Digital Object Identifier (DOI) registration agency bringing together abstracts in a common format in one searchable cross-disciplinary database. 

By joining the initiative, IOPP will make all of its abstracts part of the fundamental metadata of the article so that they will be openly available and accessible to the scientific community for unrestricted machine reading. This expanded availability of article abstracts will boost the discoverability of scholarly research and increase their impact. …”
