SCOAP3 Books

The SCOAP3 for Books initiative is a pilot that the SCOAP3 Governing Council (GC) has established at its May 2019 meeting to leverage the strong network of the Collaboration and the relationships with scholarly publishing to transition key textbooks and monographs in particle physics and neighboring fields to open access. The pilot project was designed and run by a working group comprised of volunteers from among the SCOAP3 partner institutions and concluded with a purchasing recommendation to transform 102 existing books to Open Access. On May 1st 2021 the GC approved the recommendation and the pilot is now in its implementation phase.

More details, including the complete list of books and the list of supporting SCOAP3 partners, will be announced on this page shortly.
