Authors who would like to publish an article in a journal that participates in SCOAP³ can request that the costs (article processing charges) are covered from the central SCOAP³ fund.
SCOAP³ (Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics) is a consortium that makes available high energy physics publications under Open Access conditions. To this end, a central fund covers the publishing costs, rather than the authors. SCOAP³ was launched at the beginning of 2014, after several years of preparation.
Within the DFG-funded project SCOAP³-DH, TIB coordinates the involvement of German higher education institutions in the international pilot project SCOAP³.
