For physics, for physicists, for all.

The Institute of Physics (IOP) is the physical society for UK and Ireland and comprises 50,000 members from sectors such as academia, business, education and government. The IOP’s purpose is to gather, inspire, guide, represent and celebrate all who share a passion for physics and, as a charity, to ensure that physics delivers on its potential to benefit society.

Alongside professional support for our members, we engage with policymakers and the general public to develop awareness and understanding of the value of physics. Our subsidiary company, IOP Publishing, is a global publisher of journals, ebooks, magazines and websites.
