Particle Physics Journals Move to Open Access

The Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics (SCOAP3) has announced that it has negotiated agreements with twelve journals in particle physics that will make some ninety percent of their articles available via open access in perpetuity beginning in 2014. Article publishing fees will be paid centrally by SCOAP3 from a fund to which libraries, research agencies, and consortial partners contribute, and participating journals will lower their licensing/subscription fees.
