Celebrating the 2000th publication
Today, we are very happy to publish a very special paper:
Universality class of the mode-locked glassy random laser
by Jacopo Niedda, Giacomo Gradenigo, Luca Leuzzi and Giorgio Parisi
SciPost Phys. 14, 144 (2023)
For you, this paper should be special due to its scientific quality.
For our initiative, it's a milestone because it is the 2000th paper published since our beginnings in 2016.
We would like to mark this event by expressing once again our deep gratitude to all authors, referees, Fellows, readers, advisors, supporters and sponsors who have made SciPost the successful Genuine Open Access publisher it is today.
This event also reinvigorates us to further improve and broaden our services, fulfilling our mission of providing a quality-focused, community-driven publishing solution for academics worldwide. The embrace of the community, driving the recent rapid growth we have experienced, is a convincing validation of our approach. On the one hand, this has put great strain on our currently severely limited resources; on the other hand it re-motivates us to expand our efforts to convince academic institutions and funding agencies to increase their support, so that we can bring the benefits of our activities to wider communities.

University of Bristol supports SciPost
We welcome the University of Bristol as our latest supporter. Their library contributes to the development of SciPost through Jisc’s Open Access Community Framework, that enables Jisc members to support various open access initiatives. We are delighted with this support, as that will enable SciPost to further develop its platform and publish more diamond open access papers. Thank you University of Bristol and thank you Jisc.
University College London supports SciPost
We want to thank the Library of the University College London for their generous support covering 2022-2024, through Jisc’s Open Access Community Framework program. We also thank the researchers from UCL for the many papers they submitted to SciPost journals. The support from libraries and scientists enables SciPost to further develop its journal publishing infrastructure, publish diamond open access journals and modernise the way scientific knowledge is shared.
Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz supports SciPost
SciPost is very happy to welcome the Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz as supporter. We are delighted because the scientists of this university belong to the most prolific contributors to the SciPost journals. SciPost is developing a community-led, fully open science publishing infrastructure and the support of leading academic organisations is crucial. We look forward to receiving more papers from Mainz!
First paper published in SciPost Physics Codebases
Today marks the start of our publishing operations in our latest Journal: SciPost Physics Codebases.
The first bundle is for the ALF (Algorithms for Lattice Fermions) project, and consists of codebase documentation and separately-published codebase release.
Congratulations to the whole ALF collaboration (F. F. Assaad, M. Bercx, F. Goth, A. Götz, J. S. Hofmann, E. Huffman, Z. Liu, F. Parisen Toldin, J. S. E. Portela, J. Schwab) for pioneering this new venue!
University of Sheffield is our latest supporter
The University of Sheffield is our latest supporter. The university library contributes to the development of SciPost through Jisc’s Open Access Community Framework, a wonderful program that enables Jisc members to support various open access initiatives. We are delighted to see that increasingly funding of open science activities (such as SciPost) is organised at a national level. Thank you University of Sheffield Library and thank you Jisc.
University of Pittsburgh supports SciPost
SciPost is really happy with the support of the University of Pittsburgh and the papers published by its researchers in SciPost’s diamond open access journals. We believe scientific publishing should be community-led, open, transparent, and non-profit. The contributions from our sponsors enable us to further develop the SciPost platform and offer our open science platform to more scientific disciplines.
California Digital Library supports SciPost
SciPost is thrilled to receive a generous investment from the California Digital Library. CDL is a frontrunner in pushing for a transformation in scientific publishing, so their recognition and support is greatc. SciPost is making real steps in offering a community-led diamond open access publishing infrastructure to scientists and with support from academic libraries we can make the transformation that science badly needs.
Sorbonne Université supports SciPost
We are delighted to welcome Sorbonne Université as sponsor of SciPost. Researchers of Sorbonne are among the most active contributors to the SciPost journals, see https://scipost.org/organizations/108/. Since we are a for-scientist-by-scientists organisation, we very much value the support of institutions of such active authors. Sponsorships enable us to further develop and expand our diamond open access journal program, without paywalls or APCs, fully transparent. Together with Sorbonne Université we work towards a real open science world.
