Quantitative study of the geographical distribution of the authorship of high-energy physics journals

  title={Quantitative study of the geographical distribution of the authorship of high-energy physics journals},
  author={Jan Krause and Salvatore Mele and Carl M{\aa}rten Lindqvist},
The recent debate on Open Access publishing in High-Energy Physics has exposed the problem of assessing the scientic production of every country where scholars are active in this discipline. This assessment is complicated by the highly-collaborative cross-border tradition of High-Energy Physics research. We present the results of a quantitative study of the geographical distribution of authors of High-Energy Physics articles, which takes into account cross-border co-authorship by attributing… Expand
Scientometric indicators for Brazilian research on High Energy Physics, 1983-2013.
An analysis of Brazilian research on High Energy Physics (HEP) indexed by Web of Science from 1983 to 2013 concluded that the scientometric indicators suggested scientific maturity in the Brazilian HEP community due to its long history of experimental research. Expand

A Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics (SCOAP 3) is proposed as a central body which would remunerate publishers for the peer-review service, effectively replacing the “reader-pays” model of traditional subscriptions with an “author-side” funding. Expand
Converting the Literature of a Scientific Field to Open Access through Global Collaboration: The Experience of SCOAP3 in Particle Physics
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
A sustainable business model for Open-Access journal publishing: a proposed plan for High-Energy Physics
A Working Party has been established to bring together funding agencies, laboratories and libraries into a single consortium, called SCOAP3 (Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics), which will engage with publishers to build a sustainable model for Open access publishing.

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
First results from the PARSE.Insight project: HEP survey on data preservation, re-use and (open) access
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.

Scholarly Communication in High-Energy Physics: Past, Present and Future Innovations
Unprecedented technological advancements have radically changed the way we communicate and, at the same time, are effectively transforming science into e-science. In turn, this transformation callsExpand
A road long travelled: is SCOAP3 now arriving?
The Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics (SCOAP 3) has created an innovative model for OA publishing that federates funding agencies and libraries to cover journals' professional publication costs explicitly, while publishers make the electronic versions of their journals free to read.
