Researchers in high energy physics and instrumentation

IOP Publishing has two publishing agreements to enable researchers in high energy physics and instrumentation to publish on an open access basis without having to pay the article publication charge (APC) themselves.

CERN and Journal of Instrumentation
CERN authors can publish on an open access basis in Journal of Instrumentation as a result of an agreement between CERN, IOP Publishing and SISSA Medialab. CERN authors should select the CERN open access option during the submission process and will not need to pay an APC.
SCOAP3 and Chinese Physics C
SCOAP3 is a consortium of libraries, funders and research institutions that aims to support open access publishing in high energy physics. Chinese Physics C is one of the journals in the SCOAP3 project.

SCOAP3 will pay the APCs for qualifying articles published in participating journals.
