The Geneva-based European Organization for Nuclear Physics (CERN) has collaborated with funding agencies and libraries of 29 countries to make freely available access to otherwise expensive scientific articles in the field of particle physics.

The project, called the SCOAP3 Open Access initative, was launched at CERN’s office in Switzerland on 1 October. SCOAP stands for Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics.
