The SCOAP3, (Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics) launched in Beta on January 1, 2014. The particle physics community has always been at the forefront of the open access movement. Today, the overwhelming majority of scientific results in high energy physics are freely available as eprints on institutional or subject repositories like arXiv.org, but often not in their final published form. The SCOAP3 initiative proposes a new business model for scientific publishing, with the goal of extending open-access to the bulk of peer-reviewed particle physics literature. An international consortium of funding agencies, libraries and research institutions aims to convert prestigious peer-reviewed journals to open access in a way transparent to authors, at the same time being open for any new high-quality particle physics journal. Publication costs will be centrally borne by the consortium and will be shared according to the respective number of journal articles of its member countries.
