El modelo del CERN para la publicación en acceso abierto

Alicia López Medina

At the Conference on «Scientific Publishing in the European Research Area» held in Brussels on 15-16 February 2007, the Director General of CERN, Dr. Robert Aymar, outlined a practical approach for a transition of High Energy Physics scientific publishing to Open Access.

This approach is centred on the conversion of existing high-quality journals to Open Access by re-directing subscriptions through a sponsoring consortium of High Energy Physics funding agencies and libraries worldwide.

Those of you who wish to access additional details on this initiative, named SCOAP3 (Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics), can now consult a detailed document which is available at http://cern.ch/oa/Scoap3WPReport.pdf.
