Commencing its publishing activities in 1987, IOS Press serves the information needs of scientific and medical communities worldwide. IOS Press now publishes 90 international journals and about 130 book titles each year on subjects ranging from computer sciences and mathematics to medicine and the natural sciences.
IOS Press continues its rapid growth, embracing new technologies for the timely dissemination of information. All journals are available electronically and an e-book platform was launched in 2006.
Headquartered in Amsterdam with satellite offices in the USA, Germany and China, IOS Press has established several strategic co-publishing initiatives. Notable acquisitions included Delft University Press in 2005 and Millpress Science Publishers in 2008.
IOS Press, Inc. was established in the Washington, D.C. area in 1990 and shortly after, a co-publishing relationship was established with Ohmsha. Ltd., Tokyo. In 1996 IOS Press and Ohmsha re-established the Akademische Verlagsgesellschaft Aka GmbH in Berlin, Germany. Aka publishes books and journals in German. The first book appeared in 1997, the first journal in 1998. In 2000 Aka merged with the German publisher Infix, a publisher of German language books in Artificial Intelligence and other areas of Computer Science. IOS Press is responsible for the marketing of the English language part of the Aka list. In 1998 a joint venture between Science Press, Beijing, Ohmsha and IOS Press was established in Beijing, reflecting the ever-increasing importance of scientific research being conducted in China. This company publishes for the Chinese market and does typesetting work in world languages. In October 2005, IOS Press took over the Delft University Press list, a well-established Dutch university publishing house, with an annual production of 100 book titles. The complete list of Delft University Press, which was built up by the scientific publishing house of the TU Delft over the last 30 years, consists of 800 titles.
As of 1998, IOS Press also became the publisher for the NATO Advanced Study Institutes and Partnership subseries publications in the subject disciplines of Life and Behavioural Sciences and Computer & Systems Sciences. In 2005, NATO's Security through Science Program was launched, resulting in two new book series for IOS Press; Information and Communication and Human and Societal Dynamics
