Top physics laboratories sign up to open access with PhysMath Central
Date:12/13/2007

PhysMath Central, the Open Access publisher for Physics, Mathematics and Computer Science, today announced membership agreements with the CERN and DESY high-energy physics laboratories. Under these agreements the organizations will centrally cover article-processing charges for all research published by their investigators in the peer-reviewed open access journal, PMC Physics A.

PMC Physics A is edited by professor Ken Peach of University of Oxford and Royal Holloway and was launched in October 2007. All articles published in the journal are made immediately and freely available on the web in their final published form and are indexed by speciality databases such as SPIRES.

Jens Vigen, CERN head librarian commented This membership program is an important, intermediate, step towards the SCOAP3 publishing model, where high-energy physics literature will be open access and article processing costs borne centrally in a transparent way for authors. Salvatore Mele, SCOAP3 project leader, echoing Vigens views, stated The SCOAP3 consortium will be open to all high-quality peer-reviewed journals, including emerging publishing outlets as well as established titles.

Rolf-Dieter Heuer, Research Director at DESY, is also optimistic about the future. "We at DESY have long been active supporters of open access and welcome this new OA journal. This is another important step in removing access barriers to knowledge about high-energy physics experiments and theories. Increased choice and diversity is a benefit to all, leading to a healthy and dynamic market in academic publishing in particle physics, in line with the spirit of SCOAP."

PhysMath Centrals Christopher Leonard commented, We are exceptionally pleased to welcome these major institutions on board. This reinforces CERN and DESYs commitment to supporting open access publication of the research from their laboratories. Central funding for article processing charges makes life much simpler for authors, and so accelerates the take up of open access.
