Particle physics takes a big leap towards Open Access. Broad dissemination of preliminary findings was already customary in the field; the new SCOAP3-initiative adds peer review and widens the audience further. Representatives from the science funding agencies and library communities of 29 countries have this week launched the SCOAP3 Open Access initiative. Open Access revolutionizes the traditional scientific publishing model with scientific papers being made freely available to all, and publishers paid directly for their indispensable peer-review services to the community.
