IOPscienceextra is a platform for IOP-hosted journal content.

That includes more than 60 titles covering different areas of science and engineering, which together provide access to more than 400,000 articles from 1874 to the present day. You can download a spreadsheet detailing all of our journals and their IOPscience URLs.

IOP Journals archive content

Customers who wish to access all of our archive content, including full-text articles going back to 1874, can choose to subscribe to our IOPscience extra service. Alternatively, the IOP Journal Archive offers access to a comprehensive digital collection of all the articles published by IOP that are more than 10 years old (1874-1999 in 2010).

Encyclopedia of Astronomy and Astrophysics

On 30 June 2005 Taylor & Francis acquired the IOP Publishing Books business. With this transaction, IOP Publishing transferred all rights to published and unpublished books to Taylor & Francis Group LLC, including electronic rights. This sale means that IOP Publishing will not be able to continue selling access to the Encyclopedia of Astronomy and Astrophysics (EAA)

Full list of content in KBART format for the IOP-CAUL 2017 Collection (21/3/17)

Providing Maximum Discoverability of IOP Content in the ProQuest Summon® service (28/2/17)

IOP sends journal data to the below library services. CAUL members can select the package highlighted to link to the 76 journals:
Serial Solutions Summon (IOP Science Extra)
EBSCO Discovery Service (IOP Journals)
Ex Libris Primo (IOP Science)
OCLC Worldcat (IOP Science Extra)  
We don’t have a journal feed for ALMA (our current agreement with ALMA is for ebooks-only). However libraries using ALMA who had access to the IOP complete journal collection in 2016 and prior have reported no issues with accessing our content - this is presumably set up and integrated via Primo.

Regarding Innovative Interfaces, we understand that this is a front-end system to access the EBSCO Discovery Service knowledgebase (who we do supply), so libraries can select the appropriate EBSCO collection.
We have attempted to get the other services to produce guides like the IOP-Summon one, but haven’t been successful on this yet. The discovery services have advised us that customers raising tickets directly with them, is the most efficient way of getting things set up if they do have any questions:
