The University of Münster joined the SCOAP3 consortium [de] (Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics) at the beginning of 2014. This is a worldwide association of libraries and scientists with the aim of making scientific publications in high-energy physics (HEP) freely accessible. The project is coordinated by CERN.
All articles in ten high-energy physics journals are freely available under a Creative Commons license (CC-BY) as of publication. Authors of the University of Münster do not pay publication fees for articles in these journals.
