Florida Atlantic University Libraries is proud to support Open Access by becoming a SCOAP³ (Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics) partner. On January 1, 2014, CERN announced the start of the SCOAP³ Open Access publishing initiative. Eleven publishers of high quality content, including Springer, Elsevier and IOP, are participating in this innovative open-access venture.
“With the support of partners in 24 countries, a vast fraction of scientific articles in the field of High-Energy Physics will become Open Access at no cost for any author: everyone will be able to read them; authors will retain copyright; and generous licenses will enable wide re-use of this information.” CERN Press Release (12/15/13).
On February 17th the SCOAP³ Repository was launched in beta, containing all articles funded by SCOAP³.
