Notice: Institute of Physics Journals Package Reconfiguration Effective November 1

The immediate impact is the reconfiguration of the Institute of Physics (IOP) journals package, expiring November 1, 2020. A rigorous analysis of the Institute of Physics (IOP) journals package considered usage, cost per use, research impact, anticipated interlibrary loan and copyright fees, and perpetual content access. As a result, as of November 1, 2020, the USF Libraries will not renew the IOP ScienceExtra package, but rather subscribe to 25 titles individually (list is attached). Articles from titles that are not on this list will be available through interlibrary loan upon request.

In 2013, the USF Libraries purchased IOP backfiles through 2009. Beginning in 2013, annual subscription included perpetual access. This material continues to be available as part of the permanent collection.

The USF Libraries’ commitment to providing USF faculty and students with access to the content needed for research and instruction is unwavering. For more information on the USF Libraries’ revisioning of collection management, please see: Updates will be posted to this page in the coming weeks.
