Alexander Kohls, SCOAP3 Operations Manager had contact us to spread out about the contribution of Malaysian scientists in SCOAP3. SCOAP3 can be referred as:-
” one-of-its-kind partnership of over three thousands libraries, key funding agencies and research centers in 44 countries and 3 intergovernmental organisations. Working with leading publishers, SCOAP3 has converted key journals in the field of High-Energy Physics to Open Access at no cost for authors. SCOAP3 centrally pays publishers for costs involved in providing Open Access, publishers in turn reduce subscription fees to all their customers, who can re-direct these funds to contribute to SCOAP3. Each country contributes in a way commensurate to its scientific output in the field. In addition, existing Open Access journals are also centrally supported, removing any existing financial barrier for authors.”
From https://repo.scoap3.org/, there are 168 articles related to Malaysia and the number of publication going to be increased daily.
This showed that Malaysia physics scientists well perform in Open Access publication.
