IOP Publishing endorses KBART

IOP Publishing endorses the KBART (Knowledge Bases And Related Tools) Recommended Practice, a joint NISO and UKSG initiative, as part of its commitment to supporting librarians.

The initiative has established industry standards for the timely exchange of metadata between content providers and libraries in OpenURL knowledge bases. Through endorsing the KBART initiative, library professionals can be assured that their library management systems have accurate, comprehensive and up-to-date metadata about IOP Publishing’s journals.

Graham McCann, Head of Product Management and Innovation, IOP Publishing, said: “We are pleased to be endorsing the KBART initiative and are committed to following industry standards for the benefit of our customers”.

Details of the IOP Publishing KBART-compliant knowledge base can be found on the KBART Contacts Registry.
