• Open access books sponsored by CERN

    Following its spirit of openness, CERN is supporting the publication of open access books. The books are published by a various open access publishers, while the author fees are covered by CERN (for some cases in collaboration with partners).

    For CERN authors seeking sponsorship, please consult the Scientific Information Service website.

    For more open access  books in high-energy physics books, see: SCOAP3 for Books initiative. 

  • TEAching Methods for Science

    TEaching Methods for Science (TeaMS) is a bilingual Italian-English publication that aims at disseminating knowledge about school projects and initiatives that are innovative, promote the teaching of advanced and contemporary science, and are based on a methodology having a multidisciplinar/multicultural/inclusive approach. 

  • ICFA beam dynamics newsletter

    The International Committee for Future Accelerators (ICFA) was created in 1976 by the Particle and Fields Division of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) to promote international collaboration towards construction and use of accelerators for high energy physics.

    The Beam Dynamics Panel of ICFA encourages and promotes collaboration on beam dynamics studies for present and future accelerators via workshops and regularly appearing newsletters dedicated to selected themes –coordinated by an issue editor. The spectrum of beam dynamics themes includes medium energy and high energy / high luminosity electron facilities / colliders as well as medium energy and high energy / high intensity hadron facilities. The series of such newsletters started in 1987.

    Publication of the Beam Dynamics Newsletter as Special Issue of the Journal of Instrumentation started in 2020 with Newsletter #79. It includes a general report with forewords/news from the panel chair (editor in chief) and the issue editor as well as reports from past workshops/conferences, PhD thesis abstracts and other reports; followed by papers submitted from individual authors on the special theme of the issue.

    Access current and previous newsletters via the CERN Library.

  • Proceedings of the International Open Search Symposium

    The symposium series brings together the Open Internet Search community in Europe, involving science, computing centres, libraries, politics, legal and ethics experts and society. The Symposium provides a forum to discuss and advance the ideas and concepts of Open Internet search in Europe.

    The individual contributions are available from Zenodo in the dedicated community International Open Search Symposium #ossym.

  • CERN Yellow Reports: Monographs

    The CERN Yellow Reports: Monographs series publishes monographs (Technical Design Reports on detectors, technical papers from individual CERN departments, historical reports, etc.) which were previously published in the more general CERN Reports (Yellow Reports) series.
  • CERN Yellow Reports: School Proceedings

    The CERN Yellow Reports: School Proceedings series publishes the proceedings of the CERN Schools of High-Energy Physics and the proceedings of the CERN Accelerator School organized by CERN and previously published in the Proceedings of the CERN Schools of High-Energy Physics and in the CERN Reports (Yellow Reports) series respectively.
  • CERN Proceedings

    The CERN Proceedings series was created to publish proceedings of Conferences and Workshops that were not suitable for publication in the CERN Yellow Reports: Conference Proceedings series. The series ceased publication in 2021.

  • CERN Yellow Reports: Conference Proceedings

    The CERN Yellow Reports: Conference Proceedings series publishes the proceedings of Conferences and Worskshops in High-Energy and Accelerator Physics, the criteria for consideration being that they have a large impact on the future of CERN and that the audience should be large and the duration of interest long.

  • Progress in Science Education (PriSE)

    The open access journal Progress in Science Education (PriSE) aims at stimulating exchange between researchers, teachers, and other stakeholders in the field, trying to investigate their ideas and visions, and to suggest approaches for an effective and sustainable development of science education in various settings. Especially early career researchers are encouraged to contribute and stimulate this exchange with their ideas. Progress in Science Education and CERN as publisher propose a new dynamic platform, offering the possibility of peer reviewed, timely publication of high quality research papers in four languages (English, French, German, and Italian). With its online open access format, it will be freely accessible to a large European and overseas public, including teachers. PriSE welcomes quantitative and qualitative empirical research, as well as theoretical, philosophical, programmatic, sociological, and historical work. It is open to all areas of science education (life, physical, earth, environmental, and integrated science) and neighbouring fields (e.g. mathematics, engineering, computer education).


  • CERN Annual Reports

    The CERN Annual Reports have been published every year since 1955 and contain a report of all CERN activities over each given year.
  • CERN IdeaSquare Journal of Experimental Innovation

    The CERN IdeaSquare Journal of Experimental Innovation (CIJ) is targeted at communicating thought-provoking, contemporary, and latest findings in experimentation-driven innovation research.

    CIJ is an interdisciplinary, open on-line journal that publishes both empirical and theoretical research that aims to push the boundaries of a variety of topics around in-situ experimental innovation. CIJ encourages research that is between and even beyond disciplinary lines, and welcomes research advancing innovation process methodologies, tools, educational approaches, knowledge exchange, management, and policy. The intent of CIJ is to be intellectually challenging in the name of true scientific curiosity and to cultivate evidence-based, novel insights to advance understanding on how new knowledge and basic research turn into use for society through innovation.

  • CERN Yellow Reports

    The CERN Report series (popularly known as Yellow Reports) was started in 1955. It provides a medium for communicating CERN-related work where publication in a journal is not appropriate.

    The CERN Yellow Reports series includes proceedings of conferences, schools and workshops having a large impact on the future of CERN, as well as reports on new activities which do not yet have a natural platform. The series also includes reports on detectors and technical papers from individual CERN departments, again criteria being that the audience should be large and the duration of interest long.

    In 2017 the existing CERN Yellow Report series have been re-organized into three new ones: CERN Yellow Reports: School Proceedings, CERN Yellow Reports: Conference Proceedings and CERN Yellow Reports: Monographs, to better accomodate different types of content they publish.

  • CERN Environment Report—Rapport sur l’environnement

    The report will be published bi-annually both in French and English.
