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 project was designed and is run by a working group comprised of volunteers from among the SCOAP3 partner institutions. A first purchasing recommendation of 102 existing books (backlist) was approved by the GC in May 2021 and the books are in the process of being transitioned (see regularly updated list below). The working group is now preparing a second set of books that will consist of some more backlist titles to be transitioned to OA as well as new books directly made available Open Access. Based on the experience of these two pilot sets, the GC will make a decision about establishing a regular SCOAP3 for Books programme in 2022.

List of Books

Below you will find the list of books transitioned to Open Access with a link to the PDF hosted in the SCOAP3 Repository. The books will be also available via the INIS Repository, OAPEN, and on the respective publisher websites. Please note that this list will be continuously expanded as books become available OA
