Taiwan joins SCOAP3

Share this on social media:

The Physics Research Promotion Center of Taiwan is joining the open-access, high-energy physics consortium SCOAP3.

The SCOAP3 partnership is now said to include several hundred libraries in 31 countries. Collectively, these partners have pledged 85 per cent of the SCOAP3 budget envelope of 10 million Euros/year. A network of national contact points is now supporting these libraries and consortia in calculating expected reductions in their current subscription contracts which will contribute to financing SCOAP3. This promises to be reconciled with calculations of publishers of subscription journals to be converted to open access under the SCOAP3 model.
