CERN is a scientific laboratory whose main purpose is fundamental research in High-Energy Physics (HEP). An important task of the Organization is to communicate its work, discoveries, and achievements via publications in books, journals, and proceedings of conferences, in paper and/or electronic form.
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 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: Conference Proceedings
The CERN Yellow Reports: Conference Proceedings series publishes the proceedings of Conferences and Worskshops in High-Energy and Accelerator Physcs, the criteria con consideration being that the have a large impact on the future of CERN and that the audience should be large and the durantion of interest long.
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 experimental innovation research.
CIJ is a research journal that publishes results of empirical research on the practice of strategic technology and innovation management. CIJ is a multi-disciplinary, open on-line journal that is devoted to the latest research and theory development in in-situ innovation experimentation, strategic innovation management, knowledge exchange and management, and innovation policy issues in cross-sections of science, technology, innovation, and business. The intent of CIJ is to be intellectually challenging providing evidence-based results that guide decision-making in managing innovations.
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.
