The University of Amsterdam has recently granted €60k to SciPost. This donation makes the UvA the most generous sponsor of our initiative up to now. We will make use of these funds to further develop our services and accelerate our expansion plans.
As background to this, we have talked to Gerard Kohler from the UvA's central library. In the short interview linked here under, he talks about the background reasons for this support, and his hopes for the future.
It is with great sadness that we mark the passing, at the young age of 45, of Prof. Olga Igonkina. As a Nikhef-affiliated particle physicist and prominent member of the ATLAS experiment at CERN, prof. Igonkina was an Open Access champion and great contributor to SciPost.
An independent study of scientific metadata collections has recently highlighted the quality of our publishing services. According to Dr Habermann (Boulder, Colorado), SciPost has the most complete metadata of all 8670 CrossRef members with current collections of journal articles.
SciPost guarantees free online access to all publications in all its Journals and does not charge any article processing fees for publishing. Sponsors provide operating funds to SciPost through a cost-slashing consortial model.
