22/09/2011, SCOAP3 tendering process has started

The SCOAP3 partnership is moving towards the implementation of 
its Open Access initiative.

An international team of experts from institutions participating 
in SCOAP3 has prepared a detailed description of the peer-review 
and open access services that the consortium intends to purchase 
through high-quality peer-reviewed journals, the conditions for 
the provision of these services and the implications on existing 
licensing agreements

CERN has now issued a Market Survey for the benefit of SCOAP3. It 
is publicly available at: http://cdsweb.cern.ch/record/1384149

Publishers of high-quality peer-reviewed journals carrying 
content in the field of High-Energy Physics are invited to answer 
to this Market Survey, whose purpose is to identify potential 
bidders for the provision of peer-review and open access services 
to SCOAP3. The following phase of the process will be an 
invitation to tender to qualified providers by the end of 2011, 
for contracts to be placed during 2012 with services commencing 1 
January 2013.

The deadline for interested publishers to answer the Market 
Survey is October 19th.
