SCOAP3 launches from 1 January 2014

Ten high-energy physics journals will be available as open access journals from 2014.

After several years of negotiations with libraries, publishers and funding agencies, the SCOAP3 initiative has succeeded in transforming ten core journals in the field of high-energy physics into an open access business model. The SCOAP3 (external link) (Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics) project is coordinated by CERN in Switzerland.
