The European Commission is embarking on an ambitious project called Plan S to make all scientific publications open access from 2020.
Although high-energy physics has made great strides in providing open access to research publications, we are still in the very early days of open data.
The seed that led CERN to relinquish ownership of the web in 1993 was planted when the Organization formally came into being.
During the next two years of long-shutdown two (LS2), the LHC and its injectors will be tuned up for high-luminosity operations.
One of the biggest challenges for the CMS collaboration during LS2 is to prepare its detector for the HL-LHC.
New wheel-shaped detectors that allow a better trigger and measurement capability for muons are among numerous transformations taking place.
A 100 km supercollider at CERN would open a new era in fundamental exploration
The LHCb detector is to be totally rebuilt in time for the restart of LHC operations.
The ALICE experiment is being upgraded to make even more precise measurements of extreme nuclear matter
“I think the Courier is excellent; it’s sort of ‘frozen in time’, but in a rather appropriate and appealing way.”
