SCOAP3 – Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics

Denmark supports SCOAP3.

As the Danish national contact institution, Danmarks Elektroniske Fag- og Forskningsbibliotek (DEFF) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding on participation in SCOAP3 from january 2014. The SCOAP3 model is intended to redirect resources which are currently being spent on subscriptions for journals which participate in SCOAP3 to supporting their conversion to Open Access, as well as covering Article Processing Charges (APCs) in existing Open Access journals.

In cooperation with leading publishers, SCOAP3 is converting key journals in the field of high energy physics to Open Access at no charge for the authors. As a resultat, articles become Open Access, the copyright remains with the authors, and a liberal CC-BY licence allows for text- and data-mining applications.

These journals take part in SCOAP3:

Elsevier: Nuclear Physics B and Physics Letters B

Hindawi: Advances in High Energy Physics

Institute of Physics Publishing: Chinese Physics C, Journal of Cosmology and Stroparticle Physics, and New Journal or Physics

Jagiellonian University: Acta Physica Polonica B

Oxford University Press: Progress of Theoretical and Experimental Physics

Springer: European Physical Journal C and Journal of High Energy Physics
