IOP Publishing (IOPP), the publishing arm of the Institute of Physics, has partnered with Morressier, provider of virtual conference and content solutions for professional and academic organisations, to enhance the publishing workflow for conference research. The new offering will provide an enhanced user-experience via a streamlined and user-friendly review and submission process, as well as convenient management tools for the hundreds of conference organisers with whom IOPP partners, all within the same platform.
IOPP, which is one of the world’s largest conference proceedings publishers, will leverage Morressier’s powerful conference tools to digitally capture, index and publish an expanded range of content, including proceeding articles, posters, and video presentations. Morressier’s user-friendly content submission process will enable more efficient open access publication to IOPP’s content platform, IOPscience.
David McDade, associate director, IOP Publishing said: “Delivering product and service innovations that meet the changing needs of the communities we serve is central to our conference series programme. Our partnership with Morressier comes as the Covid-19 pandemic has significantly altered the way that researchers work and collaborate. Morressier is the natural choice to enable us to re-imagine the publishing workflow to make life easier for conference organisers and increase the impact and visibility of conference research.”
Sami Benchekroun, co-founder and managing director of Morressier, said: “2020 saw scientific meetings transition into the online realm, resulting in a new way of discussing and exchanging conference content. This unprecedented shift means that the scientific community now has the unique opportunity to discover a far more diverse landscape of research, all at the tip of their fingers. We are thrilled to partner with IOPP to solve the challenge of structuring this valuable early-stage content in a way that dramatically increases the visibility of physics innovations worldwide.”
