The Korea Institute of Science & Technology Information (KISTI) and IOP Publishing (IOP) have signed an agreement on the provision and dissemination of scientific research in South Korea. 

The partnership will give Korean researchers access to over 400,000 articles in the IOP Journal Archive, which covers the years 1874-2011, and the Turpion Journal Archive, which covers 1958-2011. All institutions who are members of the KESLI (Korean Electronic Site License Initiative) will benefit from this new arrangement and Korean institutions that are not members of KESLI will now have access to both archives via a pay-per-view scheme. 

The memorandum of understanding was signed by Young-Seo Park, president of KISTI, and Olaf Ernst, commercial director of IOP at the KERIS & KESLI 2012 Online Expo, Seoul, Korea. It follows the recent licence and pay-per-view agreement, which provides Korean institutions with access to the IOP Journal Archive and the Turpion Journal Archive.
