i noted sean' reference to the high energy consortium
** SCOAP3

i wasnt familiar with it

basically as i undertand their project= funding agencies put
money into a central consortium rather than to libraries that
pay for subcriptions=

In this new model, the publishers' subscription income from multiple
institutions is
replaced by income from a single financial partner, the "Sponsoring
Consortium for
Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics" (SCOAP3

readers get access for free globally

ttp://www.scoap3.org/index.html
*

*A consortium <http://www.scoap3.org/whoisscoap3.html> facilitates Open
Access publishing in High Energy Physics by re-directing subscription money.
This answers the request <http://www.scoap3.org/community.html> of the High
Energy Physics community.*

*Today: (funding bodies through) libraries buy journal subscriptions to
support the peer-review service and allow their patrons to read articles.*

*Tomorrow: funding bodies and libraries contribute to the consortium, which
pays centrally for the peer-review service. Articles are free to read for
everyone.*

*Read now:
-The Executive Summary of the Report of the SCOAP3 Working
Party<http://www.scoap3.org/files/Scoap3ExecutiveSummary.pdf>
-The complete report <http://www.scoap3.org/files/Scoap3WPReport.pdf>*

*
*

*I suspect that this model might work for high energy physics = as the*

*research community is rather homogeneous and funded by one or two funding*

*agencies per country= almost always national funding agencies*

*
*

*the 'centralised' model is already much in play ( Eg CERN is a multi*

*national rearch center, as is the new fusion facility ITER) and the list*

*of recognised journal easy to establish ( they name just 6 that publish 90%
*

*of the high energy physics literature)
*

*they state: The financing and governance of SCOAP3 will follow as much as
possible the
example of large research collaborations and each country will contribute
according
to the number of its scientific publications, as presented in the appended
figure.*

*
*

*
*

*i have trouble imaging a centralised consortium or art/tech*

*funding agencies, national and local and private, getting together*

*to fund journals in the art/tech field !! or establishing a list*

*of journals that would be supported that way
*
