The Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics (SCOAP3) started its second year of operation and celebrates the publication of the first 5,000 articles.
More than 18,000 scientists from 86 countries have benefited from this Open Access initiative, publishing articles at no direct costs.
All these Open Access articles have appeared in high quality peer-reviewed journals from participating publishers and are released under a CC-BY license. In addition to being accessible on publishers’ websites with no barriers, articles are also available on the SCOAP3 repository at repo.scoap3.org
