IEEE announced today its interest in participating in the SCOAP3 initiative, mentioning that "SCOAP3 endorses principles such as the
value of peer review to validate scientific research, and the need for self-sustaining
business models. The IEEE is keenly interested in exploring
approaches that benefit the creators and consumers of technical literature."
IEEE publishes a "broadband" journal, IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science, which, among other engineering disciplines, carries articles about technical aspects of High-Energy Physics experiments. SCOAP3 aims to convert the High-Energy Physics content of such "broadband" journals to Open Access. IEEE agrees that "Under the SCOAP3 plan, paid subscribers to a broadband journal would receive a price reduction to account for the subset of the journal's articles that are supported by SCOAP3"
