2014 Mid-year update on SCOAP3

The SCOAP3 consortium (Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics), which converted journals in high energy physics to open access in 2014, includes two Springer journals.

They are the Journal of High Energy Physics, published by Springer for the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA – Trieste, Italy), and The European Physical Journal C, co-published by Società Italiana di Fisica (SIF – Bologna, Italy).

Under SCOAP3, both journals have been converted to fully open access journals with a Creative Commons Attribution license in January 2014. The costs are centrally covered by the SCOAP3 consortium through a process of reduction and re-direction of subscription fees.


To facilitate SCOAP3, Springer reconciles the reductions in subscription fees and adjusts library licenses worldwide.
