Journals

  • 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. 

  • 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.

  • 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 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 durantion of interest long.

  • 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 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.

  • Progress in Science Education (PriSE)

    Science education is a highly dynamic field of applied and basic research and of research-based development. Its ideas and problems arise at the intersection of theoretical and empirical research and of educational practice in science classrooms, informal learning and teacher education, of the important and manifold relations of modern societies with science and education, and of a scientific, evidence-based approach to science teaching and learning and science literacy.

    In this framework, Progress in Science Education (PriSE) aims at fostering a 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 and out of school.

  • 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 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 Environment Report—Rapport sur l’environnement

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