The High Energy Accelerator Research Organization (KEK), National Institute of Informatics (NII) and Coordinating Committee for Japanese University Libraries (CCJUL) have jointly established a partnership with the SCOAP3 initiative.
Following the earlier support of the Japanese scientific community, KEK, NII and CCJUL have jointly pledged financial support for the Japanese share of the SCOAP3 budget envelope.
The partnership of the Japanese community and SCOAP3 is extremely important for the success of this initiative which now counts supporters in 28 countries in Africa, America, Asia, Europe and Oceania. Partners worldwide have collectively pledged 80.5% of the SCOAP3 budget envelope of 10 million Euros/year, fairly shared according to their contribution to High-Energy Physics literature.
Following a recent consensus decision, the SCOAP3 partnership is now in moving forward with the implementation of its Open Access initiative, while further partnership are built in Asia, South America and the U.S.
