Series in Physics and Engineering in Medicine and Biology

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 have created a new ebook programme specifically designed for the medical physics and biomedical engineering communities.

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.

The new book series will be hosted on IOPscience alongside the two IPEM journals published by IOP, Physics in Medicine & Biology and Physiological Measurement, providing all content to researchers in one place.   Subjects include Clinical Engineering,Diagnostic Radiology,Informatics and Computing,Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Nuclear Medicine, Physiological Measurement, Radiation Protection, Radiotherapy, Rehabilitation and Biomechanics Engineering, Ultrasound and Non Ionising Radiation.
