SciPost permanently archived in CLOCKSS


SciPost has recently been included in the CLOCKSS archive, which is a not-for-profit joint venture between leading academic publishers and research libraries providing a sustainable, geographically distributed archive to ensure long-term survival of scholarly publications for the benefit of the greater global research community.

Come rain, come snow, come hail or sleet, you can trust that SciPost publications will always be available.

Citable Reports, Replies and Comments


SciPost's peer-witnessed refereeing process is rapidly gaining recognition as a top-quality, stringent yet constructive and useful way of implementing peer review. In order to further stimulate our referees and authors to do a professional and timely job, we will from now on provide a citable DOI to the publicly-visible Reports, Author Replies and Contributor Comments, provided the College judges those to be of sufficiently high quality. The work you put into Reports, Replies and Comments will thus find its proper place in the citable scientific record.

Launch of SciPost Physics Proceedings


Following community requests, we have launched a new Journal for Physics: SciPost Physics Proceedings.

This new Journal aims at providing a high-quality, openly accessible publishing venue for conference/workshop/school proceedings. It follows SciPost's core principles of two-way open access and peer-witnessed refereeing.

Interested in setting up a Proceedings issue? Learn more about the features and procedures by following the link below.

Launch of Supporting Partners Board


We are pleased to announce the official launch of the SciPost Supporting Partners Board.

The SPB's purpose is to provide the main financial backing to ensure the long-term viability of our operations. Partnership is primarily aimed at funding agencies, universities, libraries, foundations and governments, and provides multiple benefits for minimal costs.

Do communicate this information to your local institution's librarian/open access officer (or send us their contact details).

With this initiative, SciPost is taking the next step in the professionalization of its services for the scientific community.
