The global SCOAP3 project, which aims to convert peer reviewed High Energy Physics journals to an open access model, has achieved a number of milestones in 2012.  Beginning in late 2012, libraries that previously made Expressions of Interest will be asked to calculate exactly their firm pledges and in early 2013 will authorize the re-direction from their subscription-based charges to SCOAP3 article payments.  CERN (Switzerland) hosts and manages this project for the benefit of SCOAP3.  An international Steering Committee has been working with CERN leadership over the past 1.5 years to realize this initiative.

This session will provide a brief overview of SCOAP3, key dates and deliverables, structures, and future prospects.

Presented by Ann Okerson, SCOAP3 Steering Committee Member, and Senior Advisor for Electronic Strategies, Center for Research Libraries.

Note: Overflow seating is available for all plenary sessions in the Francis Marion Colonial and Gold Ballrooms.
