Salvatore Mele

Head of Open Access
Salvatore Mele holds a PhD in Physics and is head of Open Access at CERN, where he architected the SCOAP3 initiative [scoap3.org]: a partnership of 3’000 libraries and funding agencies in 46 countries which converted to Open Access the majority of High-Energy Physics articles. It is transparent for authors and leverages the CERN model of international collaboration.

Salvatore’s team at CERN, with partners in the U.S., Germany and China, runs the INSPIRE service [inspirehep.net], a Open Access digital library for High-Energy Physics, queried twice per second by scientists of the field.

Salvatore supports the ORCID and the DataCite initiatives by serving on their Boards of Directors.

Long ago, he enjoyed a fifteen years carriers in physics as a research scientist both at CERN and at the Italian National Institute for Nuclear Physics, measuring fundamental physics constants and searching for such exotic things as extra space dimensions.
