Austrian consortium sponsors SciPost
12 December 2018
We are extremely pleased to announce that Austria will form the first national consortium to sponsor SciPost. Led by the FWF, this consortium includes the Universities of Graz, Innsbruck, Linz, Salzburg and Vienna, the Technical Universities of Graz and of Vienna, the Montanuniversität Leoben, the IST Austria, and the Austrian Academy of Sciences. The consortium will sponsor SciPost for a period of 5 years.
These resources will be entirely dedicated to furthering SciPost's mission to transform scientific publishing by providing a Genuine Open Access solution to researchers worldwide. Our operations naturally align with and fulfil the requirements of the ambitions formulated in Plan S from cOAlition S.
Many Austrian researchers have already adopted and contributed to the SciPost platform, and we hope that this mark of recognition from this consortium will encourage many more to join in and further fuel our expanding operations.
