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.See the NWO award page

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.
