SciPost does not charge any subscription fees or article processing charges (APCs): all our operations are performed as a community service, with no user-facing charges;
Our initiative's scope is resolutely international: we do not impose any geographical or institutional restrictions on the delivery of our services;
SciPost is dedicated to serving the academic community, with no further competing interests.
Our sharp focus on openness through our peer-witnessed refereeing procedure equips us with arguably the most stringent editorial quality control system available;
Our Editorial College is composed of a broad selection of top academics;
Our fully professional publishing services meet or surpass best practices in all respects. Our flagship journal SciPost Physics has been awarded the DOAJ Seal.
Our operations are obviously not without cost, but our strictly not-for-profit setup, community-led workflow, streamlined infrastructure and no-frills administration mean that the average per-publication costs are much lower than those of competing services;
Our financing model relies on sponsorship from the organizations which benefit from our activities (see our organizations page);
All sponsorship funds are pooled and exclusively used to run our infrastructure and services.
We are able to run a fully sustainable infrastructure at an estimated cost of under €400 per publication, much below the current norm for APCs. The more scientists shift their publishing to SciPost, the fewer subscription/article processing charges you will have to pay as an organization. Your sponsorship will help us scale up and make our initiative sustainable.
