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-affiliated authors and experimental collaborations

CERN and IOP Publishing have an agreement that covers open access publishing in the majority of IOP journals at no cost to authors, including Journal of Physics G: Nuclear and Particle Physics and Journal of Instrumentation. For more information please see the CERN dedicated support page.


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.
