SCOAP3 tendering process now complete

From SCOAP3's July 17 press release:

Acting for the benefit of SCOAP3, CERN conducted the tendering process and, on the basis of the bids submitted by publishers, has identified 12 journals from 7 publishers for participation in SCOAP3. This open and competitive procedure took into account the quality of the journals (as measured by Impact Factor), the quality of the services provided (as measured by re-use licenses and delivery formats), and the unit price for publishing each article.

Over 6'600 articles eligible for inclusion in SCOAP3 were published in these journals in 2011, comprising the vast majority of the high-quality peer-reviewed literature in the field of High Energy Physics.

Articles funded by SCOAP3 will be available Open Access in perpetuity, under a CC-BY license, while publishers will reduce their subscription fees accordingly. Detailed technical specifications are publicly available

Taking into account the projected SCOAP3 budget envelope of 10M EUR/year, publishers and journals to which a contract for Peer Review, Open Access and related publishing services may be awarded, include, in alphabetical order:

  • American Physical Society
  • Physical Review C
  • Physical Review D
