NWO funds development of SciPost’s infrastructure

27 October 2021

The NWO, as part of its Open Science Fund 2021, has awarded SciPost an infrastructure development grant to facilitate expanding to other disciplines. Working with several scientific communities in parallel necessitates further development of IT infrastructure and web app. This project will fund a developer to help upgrade SciPost’s systems, allowing working with multiple teams employing parallel editorial processes, dealing with growing numbers of authors and manuscripts, and covering the needs of additional research communities.

1000th Publication at SciPost

17 September 2021

SciPost, the innovative scientist-led diamond open access publishing portal, is delighted to announce it has published its 1000th article this week. The paper by Barry M. Dillon, Tilman Plehn, Christof Sauer and Peter Sorrenson, entitled “Better Latent Spaces for Better Autoencoders”, was published in SciPost Physics.

SciPost's mission is to develop a genuinely open access publication system, community-led, without subscription paywalls or publication costs for authors. SciPost is strictly non-profit and is fully guided by open science principles.

Since the launch of its first journal in 2016, SciPost Physics, SciPost has been embraced by the research and wider academic communities. In the following years several new journals were launched, in other disciplines (chemistry, astronomy) or publishing different article types (lecture notes, proceedings).

SciPost is owned and run by the research community. Over 170 professional scientists manage the innovative peer-witnessed review process and they are regularly consulted about SciPost’s policies and processes. The SciPost model delivers freely, openly, globally and perpetually accessible science, financially supported by over 60 universities, libraries and funding agencies around the world. These organisations recognise the benefits of this model.

We want to thank our authors, readers, referees, Fellows of the Editorial Colleges, Advisors, sponsors and supporters for contributing to SciPost’s success. We look forward to expanding our open science services, further empowering the research community to implement genuinely open scientific publishing.

SciPost is delighted and grateful for receiving Euro 26.461 from the Diamond Open Access Fund of the University of Amsterdam. This grant will allow us to further develop SciPost’s web based infrastructure and expand its publishing activities into other disciplines. The University of Amsterdam recognises that diamond open access journals contribute significantly towards independent, non-profit and for-scientists-by-scientists publishing practices, and that such initiatives need support from universities. The University of Amsterdam is committed to a full open access transition and the DOAF is one of their programs to support these developments.
