beta site

This is our public testing space – where we are unveiling new features and asking for your feedback as we work towards a complete redesign of our website.

Our aim is to create a simple, user friendly digital experience, bringing all our content together in one place. This beta is the first step on that journey.

Initially, only a small proportion of our content and services will be available here - just enough to help you understand the direction we want to travel in. New functionality and resources will be added regularly over the coming months by our team, until we are confident it is ready to replace the current If you are unable to find something on this site, please check

Gathering your feedback

Your views are critical to this process. You can tell us what you think and send suggestions to You’ll be able to do this from launch, right up until the completion of the project. We won’t be able to respond individually, but all feedback will go direct to the project team for consideration. Your input is vital to ensuring we deliver the that you need.

IOPConnect for members

IOPConnect, which replaced MyIOP, is where members can manage their membership and personalise their experience, tailoring preferences to see only the most relevant content.

Our vision is for to be a hub for all things physics. For the first time, IOPConnect will bring together the best of everything we do, all in one place. Over time, further options for personalisation will be added, with all our services and subsidiaries eventually feeding into IOPConnect, making it an evolving, ever more powerful tool.

Service interruptions

While we make this happen, will remain online, so that you can still access the vast majority of our content. Section by section, the best of that content will be moved to the new site. Only once that process is complete will we shut the old site down.

As the infrastructure that underpins our digital services is updated, some features on the old site will be decommissioned before they’re up and running on the new site. Please bear with us while we do this - we are working very hard to minimise disruption.

A leap forward

It is a time of great change for the Institute. Once complete, we believe this redevelopment will represent a significant improvement to everything we do digitally.

Please take a moment to explore the beta site. We hope you enjoy watching it evolve over the coming months, and we look forward to hearing your feedback.
