LYRASIS has signed a Collaboration Agreement with CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, to serve as the US National Contact Point for the SCOAP3 initiative, whose mission is to convert peer-reviewed literature in particle physics to open access. SCOAP3 is a consortium of research institutions, funding agencies, libraries and library consortia. It is the first-ever planned experiment in converting an entire discipline to open access, in partnership with leading publishers. Through its broad membership reach, non-profit status, sound business infrastructure, as well as the long-time participation of its staff in SCOAP3 design and planning, LYRASIS is uniquely positioned to be the National Contact Point for the US and to bring the initiative to fruition.
Here you will find a variety of docume​nts about SCOAP3 and the LYRASIS effort to coordinate the participation in SCOAP3 by United States libraries.
Many US libraries with interest in High Energy Physics have previously submitted an Expression of Interest in SCOAP3. These and other libraries, library consortia and research institutions can now get more detailed information from Ann Okerson​, SCOAP US National Contact Person.
