2016 SCOAP3 Forum

Posted on: Oct 24, 2016

As a participant in the SCOAP3 Open Access Project coordinated by the Canadian Research Knowledge Network, the Concordia Library would like to invite all interested parties to participate in the 2016 SCOAP3 Forum. The Forum is held each year to apprise SCOAP3 partners of the latest updates and to advise of new developments and next steps in the project. Two identical sessions are planned for Dec. 1 and Dec. 5. For more information and a registration form visit: https://scoap3.org/forum2016_registration/


SCOAP3 is a one-of-its-kind partnership of over three thousand libraries, key funding agencies and research centers in 44 countries and 3 intergovernmental organisations. Working with leading publishers, SCOAP3 has converted key journals in the field of High-Energy Physics to Open Access at no cost for authors. SCOAP3 centrally pays publishers for costs involved in providing Open Access, publishers in turn reduce subscription fees to all their customers, who can re-direct these funds to contribute to SCOAP3. Each country contributes in a way commensurate to its scientific output in the field. In addition, existing Open Access journals are also centrally supported, removing any existing financial barrier for authors. [from SCOAP3 website]
