SCOAP3 Extension

SCOAP3CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, and the ‘host organization’ of SCOAP3 announced that it has signed contracts with 10 leading scientific publishers and learned societies to extend this Open Access initiative for three more years. This was the last step for this unique global Open Access partnership to continue supporting authors worldwide through at least December 2019.  Eight journals will participate in this three-year extension of the initiative, of which five are published by learned societies. All articles will be published Open Access in perpetuity, under Creative Commons CC-BY licenses at no direct cost to any authors. In addition to availability on the publishers’ platforms, articles will be also available on the SCOAP3 Repository, enabling partners to build value-added services.
