Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics (SCOAP3)
https://scoap3.org

Researchers, students, readers with an interest in particle physics, and librarians may appreciate the work of the Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics, or SCOAP3 for short. Describing itself as “a one-of-its-kind partnership of over 3,000 libraries, key funding agencies and research centers in 44 countries and 3 intergovernmental organizations,” SCOAP3 works with leading publishers like Elsevier and Springer to convert academic journals in the field of high energy physics to an open access model with no publication fees for authors. Since its launch in January 2014, SCOAP3 has funded more than 30,000 articles, with more than 5,000 articles funded in 2019 as of this write-up. Currently, there are 11 journals participating in SCOAP3, including Nuclear Physics B, Physical Review Letters, and Progress of Theoretical and Experimental Physics. Those interested in reading open-access articles from these and other journals can find them in the SCOAP3 Repository, while those interested in learning more about how SCOAP3 works will find helpful explanations in the FAQ section as well as several recorded webinars in the Resources section.

Statistics in Schools: History Activities

October 24, 2019

Statistics in Schools: History Activities
https://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/sis/activities/history.html

From the U.S. Census Bureau’s Statistics in Schools (SIS) program comes this collection of classroom history and social studies activities intended to “supplement the standard curriculum while providing useful learning tools related to real life data.” This collection features well-developed activity plans for K-12 students, each focused on a specific topic. Activities are broadly grouped into grade-level appropriate subjects: elementary grades (e.g. “Jamestown – Factors Affecting Population Change, 1630-1700”), middle school (e.g. “Where Should I Live? Using U.S. Census Bureau Data to Make Decisions”), and high school (e.g. “19th Century Immigration – Causes & Effects”). The webpage for each activity gives a description, states the time and materials required, and provides a list of learning objectives. Some activities also take advantage of the Census Bureau’s interactive digital tools, such as QuickFacts. Each lesson includes attractively designed and downloadable PDFs of teacher and student versions of the activity. This will be added to Education Resources Subject Tracer™.
