Projects

  • Open Access Publication Funding Open Access Publication Funding: DESY Hamburg 2022-2024 The "Open Access Publication Funding" programme of the German Research Foundation highlights the pivotal role of Open Access in improving scientific communication. It aims to create structural adjustment in financial flows, thus enabling the transformation towards Open Access while improving transparency regarding the costs for publication of research results. To this end it grants a fixed allowance for the publication of research results in Open Access.
  • openCost automated, standardised delivery and open provision of publication costs and publishing agreements The project "openCost: automated, standardised delivery and open provision of publication costs and publishing agreements" was launched by Bielefeld University Library, the German Electron Synchrotron DESY (Hamburg) and Regensburg University Library. It aims to create a technical infrastructure with which publication costs for Open Access publications can be comprehensively recorded and made openly accessible using standardised interfaces.
  • PUNCH4NFDI Particles, Universe, NuClei and Hadrons for the NFDI PUNCH4NFDI is the NFDI consortium of particle, astro-, astroparticle, hadron and nuclear physics, representing about 9.000 scientists from universities, the Max Planck society, the Leibniz Association, and the Helmholtz Association in Germany. PUNCH physics addresses the fundamental constituents of matter and their interactions, as well as their role for the development of the largest structures in the universe - stars and galaxies. The achievements of PUNCH science range from the discovery of the Higgs boson, the installation of a 1 cubic kilometre particle detector for neutrino detection in the antarctic ice, the detection of the quark-gluon plasma in heavy-ion collisions to the first picture ever of the black hole at the heart of the Milky Way.
  • SCOAP³ Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics Unrestricted access to published scientific results is essential for wide dissemination and efficient usage of scientific knowledge.
  • iNSPIRE Run in collaboration by CERN, DESY, Fermilab, IHEP, IN2P3, and SLAC, INSPIRE has been serving the scientific community for almost 50 years. Previously known as SPIRES, it was the first website outside Europe and the first database on the web. Close interaction with the user community and with arXiv, ADS, HEPData, ORCID, PDG and publishers is the backbone of INSPIRE’s evolution.
