Having always been at the forefront of information management and open access, High-Energy Physics (HEP) proves to be an ideal test-bed for innovations in scholarly communication including new information and communication technologies. Three selected topics of scholarly communication in High-Energy Physics are presented here: a new open access business model, SCOAP3, a world-wide sponsoring consortium for peer-reviewed HEP literature; the design, development and deployment of an e… Expand
SCOAP3 and Open Access
TLDR
This installment of “The Balance Point” presents articles written by three Open Access advocates, outlining the SCOAP3 proposal, benefits of participation, and some of the roles libraries, publishers and scientists can play in making important changes to scholarly communication. Expand
SCOAP3 and Open Access
Abstract SCOAP3 is an innovative Open Access initiative for publishing in high-energy physics. The model is viewed by many as a potential solution to multiple issues related to the financial crisis,Expand

TLDR
The HEP publication landscape and the bibliometric studies at the basis of the SCOAP3 model are described, and the status of the initiative is presented, debriefing the lessons learned in this attempt to achieve a large-scale conversion of an entire field to Open Access. Expand
Citing and reading behaviours in high-energy physics
TLDR
The analysis of citation data demonstrates that free and immediate online dissemination of preprints creates an immense citation advantage in HEP, whereas publication in Open Access journals presents no discernible advantage. Expand
Drivers and barriers in digital scholarly communication
TLDR
This thesis frames a new and comprehensive picture of digital scholarly communication today, highlighting that opportunities of Open Science are not yet explored widely and that with targeted support, it is possible to build on best practices and develop strategies that engage communities in new innovations.

Opening Up Science: Towards an Agenda of Open Science in Industry and Academia
The shift towards open innovation has substantially changed the scientific and practical perception of corporate innovation. While scientific studies on open innovation are burgeoning, presentExpand
SCOAP3: where libraries, scientists and publishers meet repositories, peer-reviewed journals and Open Access.
TLDR
The field of High-Energy Physics has decades of tradition in cross-border collaboration and Open Access and is now proposing an innovative model for scientific publishing: SCOAP3. Expand
Citing and Reading Behaviors of High-Energy Physics or How a Community Stopped Worrying about Journals and Learned to Love Repositories
TLDR
The analysis of citation data demonstrates that free and immediate online dissemination of preprints creates an immense citation advantage in HEP, whereas publication in Open Access journals presents no discernible advantage. Expand
Converting the Literature of a Scientific Field to Open Access through Global Collaboration: The Experience of SCOAP3 in Particle Physics
TLDR
The economic principles of SCOAP3 are described, the collaborative approach of the partnership is described, and the financial results after four years of successful operation are summarized. Expand

First results from the PARSE.Insight project: HEP survey on data preservation, re-use and (open) access
TLDR
The survey reveals the widespread opinion that data preservation is "very important" to "crucial" and highlights the chronic lack of resources and infrastructure to tackle this issue, as well as deeply-rooted concerns on the access to, and the understanding of, preserved data in future analyses.

Communication Patterns in High-Energy Physics
This historical paper was written in 1965 by Luisella Goldschmidt-Clermont, who envisioned and inspired the preprint communication system. For complex reasons, it has not been published until now,Expand
