SCOAP3

Free open access publishing for all authors in 8 ‘High Energy Physics’ journals

Ten journals in the field of ‘high energy physics’ are converted to full open access for a period of three years. These are journals from various publishers as Elsevier, Springer and IOP. This initiative by CERN, which has been named SCOAP3, is supported by TU/e and other Dutch universities.

  • Acta Physica Polonica B
  • Advances in High Energy Physics
  • Chinese Physics C
  • European Physical Journal C
  • Journal of High Energy Physics
  • Nuclear Physics B
  • Physics Letters B
  • Progress of Theoretical and experimental Physics

From 1 January 2018 this list will be expanded with:

  • Physical Review C
  • Physical Review D
  • Physical Review Letters

How to publish your article open access in these journal

SCOAP3 centrally pays publishers from a common fund at CERN, to which libraries, library consortia, research institutions and funding agencies jointly contribute. Publishing in open access is free for all authors. Therefore, no special steps are required to make you article open access. Just submit your article as you would normally do and upon acceptance it will automatically be made available free of charge.
