IOP Publishing’s new name-change policy supports greater inclusion in publishing


IOP Publishing (IOPP) has implemented a new policy which will allow authors to change their name on previously published research. The move is part of IOPP’s commitment to ensuring open, supportive and inclusive research environment. People change their name for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to gender identity, marriage, divorce, or a change in religion. In many cases, particularly for trans and non-binary authors, changing names needs to be approached with discretion and sensitivity.
