The Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM) and the Institute of Physics Publishing (IOPP) have been journal-publishing partners for more than 40 years and are now creating a new ebook programme specifically designed for the medical physics and biomedical engineering communities.
It will be supported by a specially selected editorial advisory board who will identify key areas of interest for IPEM members and the wider community, including physicists, clinical and biomedical engineers, and technologists working in medicine and biology.
Through IOP’s award-winning ebooks programme, the new books will be available in PDF, ePub and Kindle format. This means that books will be available to read on different devices and with the option for multimedia and mathML. Content will be without digital rights management, therefore allowing unlimited concurrent usage. Print on demand will also be available.
