The SCOAP^{3} tendering process conducted by CERN for the benefit of SCOAP^{3}, resulted in agreedupon Article Processing Charges (APCs) for journals participating in the first phase of SCOAP^{3} (20142016) and defined the corresponding maximum annual payment amounts.
Within the SCOAP^{3} model, these APCs are not paid by authors, but centrally by SCOAP^{3}, from a common fund to which libraries, library consortia, research institutions and funding agencies jointly contribute. SCOAP^{3} articles are defined as either all articles appearing in journals mostly carrying HighEnergy Physics content, or articles appearing in “broad band” journals which have been submitted by researchers to arXiv under one of the HighEnergy Physics categories.
The maximum yearly payment by SCOAP^{3} for each journal for the first year of operation (2014) was based on the journal APC and the number of SCOAP^{3} articles published in 2011 (the latest year for which complete data were available at the time of tendering). The APCs themselves and the SCOAP^{3} budget envelope are fixed for the duration of the threeyear contract period (2014 – 2016). In 2015 and 2016, the maximum yearly payment amounts consider a growth component of between 8% for “large” journals and 50% for “small” journals, to account for the increasing number number of articles and the dynamics introduced by SCOAP^{3}.
Taking into account these caps and the actual growth of the journals, the average effective cost per article for SCOAP^{3} is ca. 1,100 EUR. More details are given in a recent working paper.

Authors of HighEnergy Physics articles publishing in journals participating in SCOAP^{3} benefit from:
The submission process itself is not different to other journals and remains unchanged with the introduction of SCOAP^{3}. Authors will not need to pay any fees to publish in a SCOAP^{3} journal. For journals which are not fully covered by SCOAP^{3}, as they also publish material beyond HighEnergy Physics, SCOAP^{3} usually covers only publications of preprints previously submitted to one of the HighEnergy Physics categories in arXiv.It is always recommended to include your ORCiD in the entire process.
