Established in 2014, SCOAP3 is a partnership of over 3,000 libraries, funding agencies, and research organizations from 45 countries and 3 intergovernmental organizations, hosted at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). The model allows everybody in the world to access high-quality scientific knowledge and for researchers worldwide working in the discipline of high energy physics to publish new discoveries in the leading peer-reviewed particle physics journals at no cost. Working with publishers of leading journals in the discipline, SCOAP3 has collectively supported open access publishing of research articles, enabling free global readership and re-use for high energy physics research, as well as barrier-free and equal publishing (i.e. without Article Processing Charges, APCs) for authors from 120 countries across the world.
