Reusing IOP Published Content

In order to reuse content published by IOP or its partners, you may need to request express permission. If permission is required, the way you will need to obtain this permission depends on what material you wish to reuse, and how you wish to reuse it. For full details on when permission is required, and how to obtain permission, please read the information below.

When permission is not needed:

There are a few instances in which you don’t need permission to reuse IOP published content:

  • If you are publishing a new work with IOP and wish to reuse content from an IOP journal or eBook, or a partner journal that we handle permissions for. IOP already has the permission to use this content, so you do not need to request it again.
  • If the content was published on an open-access basis that allows the type of reuse you need. For details of open access licences, please see Creative Commons Licences.
  • If you are the original author of the content you wish to reuse, and your reuse falls within the allowances of our Author Rights policy.

Using the CCC Marketplace:

To reuse content from many of our journals, we have partnered with the Copyright Clearance Centre (CCC) to use their Marketplace Republication Service. You can find further details on how to use this service here: CCC Republication Service
