I have published an article in an IOP journal. May I reuse figures, tables, or text extracts, in future published works?

Yes. If you published your article on a subscription basis within an IOP owned journal, our Author Rights Policy grants you back the right to reuse, without permission, your figures, tables, and text extracts of up to 400 words, in future published works. This also applies to the Partner owned journals we publish that share our Author Rights Policy, and also to some that have their own policy. For more information on the author rights policy applicable to each journal, please see our Quick Check Guide.

When reusing content in this way, you must display adequate citation information and IOP’s and/or our Partner’s copyright notice. This information is necessary in order to show where any reuse requests should be directed and to avoid any suggestion of self-plagiarism.

If you published your article on a Gold Open Access basis under a CC BY licence, you—in common with all third parties—may deal with the article in any way you wish (such as reusing figures, tables, and text extracts, in new works), so long as you include attribution to the authors, the journal citation and notice of the CC BY licence. For full licence terms and attribution requirements, please refer to the CC BY licence on the Creative Commons website.
