The SCOAP3 consortium (Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics), which will convert journals in high energy physics to open access, 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 SocietàItaliana di Fisica (SIF – Bologna, Italy). Under SCOAP3, both journals will be converted to fully open access journals with a Creative Commons Attribution license as of January 2014. The costs will be centrally covered by the SCOAP3 consortium through a process of reduction and re-direction of subscription fees.
