Where to publish journal articles?

Please note that the CERN Open Access publication policy is being updated, and this page will be updated accordingly in the coming weeks. In the meantime, don't hesitate to contact us in case of questions.  (January, 6th 2017)

CERN authors are now requested to publish all their results Gold Open Access as per CERN Open Access publication policy.

The easiest way to publish Open Access articles in Physics is to prefer journals covered by SCOAP3 or through Open Access arrangements where no additional fees should be paid by CERN.

This page helps you understand the situation and describes these journals and these agreements.

If you plan to publish conference proceedings, please consult the list of conference proceedings publishers which provide Open Access publication.
