SCOAP3 Publishing Model

Nuclear Physics B and Physics Letters B are included in SCOAP3, an innovative project designed to bring open access to the high-energy physics community.

What does this mean for you as an author?

Authors can simply continue to publish their research in these journals as they always have. Upon acceptance, articles will be published open access, under a CC-BY license. Authors do not have to pay any publication fees for open access as these are covered by the SCOAP3 project.

Journal Metrics

The academic community has demanded more choice, accuracy and insight into journal performance, and Elsevier has responded with new metrics.

CiteScore is one of these new metrics. It is defined by the number of citations received by a journal in one year to documents published in the three previous years, divided by the number of documents indexed in Scopus published in those same three years. For example, the 2015 CiteScore counts the citations received in 2015 to documents published in 2012, 2013 or 2014, and divides this by the number of documents indexed in Scopus published in 2012, 2013 and 2014.
