[+] SCOAP3 & Journals of High-Energy Physics

Dear university members,

 HEAL-Link is a member of SCOAP3 project since 2014.

 SCOAP3 is a one-of-its-kind partnership of over 3.000 libraries, key funding agencies and research centers in 44 countries and 3 intergovernmental organisations. Working with leading publishers, SCOAP3 has converted key journals in the field of High-Energy Physics to Open Access at no cost for authors. SCOAP3 centrally pays publishers for costs involved in providing Open Access, publishers in turn reduce subscription fees to all their customers, who can re-direct these funds to contribute to SCOAP3. Each country contributes in a way commensurate to its scientific output in the field. In addition, existing Open Access journals are also centrally supported, removing any existing financial barrier for authors. SCOAP3 journals are open for any scientist to publish in without any financial barriers. Copyright stays with authors, and a permissive CC-BY license allow text- and data-mining. SCOAP3 addresses Open Access mandates at no burden for authors. All articles appear in the SCOAP33 repository for further distribution, as well as being Open Access on publishers’ websites.


The SCOAP3 model is based on a lightweight central administration which arranges payment of Article Processing Charges at a competitive level, through funds made available from a redirection of former subscription money. Participating libraries redirect the money previously used for subscribing to the SCOAP3 journals into a common fund, from which the publication costs are paid. This redirection is possible as all publishers are reducing or eliminating subscription costs to the SCOAP3 journals and credit all their clients respectively. The total amount contributed by each country is commensurate with its share in the worldwide scientific output in High-Energy Physics.
