Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics (SCOAP3)

Conditions of funding: The University Library is a participant in the international project SCOAP³, (Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics). The goal of this project is to completely transform established subscription-based high-energy physics journals to an Open Access model. Affiliates of the University of Graz can therefore also publish in Open Access in SCOAP³ at no cost.

The corresponding author is responsible for securing the agreement of all co-authors to Open Access publication and the related CC licence.


The Open Access agreement allows for publishing in the following journals:
High-energy physics journals:

  • Acta Physica Polonica B (APPB): Jagiellonen-Universität in Krakau
  • Advances in High Energy Physics (AHEP): Hindawi
  • Chinese Physics C (CPC): IOP Publishing
  • The European Physical Journal C (EPJC): Springer
  • The Journal of High Energy Physics (JHEP): Springer
  • Nuclear Physics B (NPB): Elsevier
  • Physics Letters B (PLB): Elsevier
  • Physical Review C (PRC): APS Physics
  • Physical Review D (PRD): APS Physics
  • Physical Review Letters (PRL): APS Physics
  • Progress of Theoretical and Experimental Physics (PTEP): Oxford University Press

Submission of articles:
Please use your official e-mail address (@uni-graz.at) and, if possible, submit your article from the University of Graz network. Follow the University of Graz affiliation guidelines when stating which institution you belong to.
You can indicate your membership of SCOAP³ during the submission process for any of these journals.

After publication:
Your article should be entered into the University of Graz Research Portal. The platform can be accessed from your UNIGRAZonline business card or at forschungsportal.uni-graz.at. For further information as well as instructions, (German only), please see the Intranet.
In accordance with the University of Graz Open Access policy, it is recommended that university members make previously published articles available in the institutional repository unipub, as long as there is no severe legal or financial reason not to do so.
