Journal of High Energy Physics celebrates 20 years of open access electronic publishing
- 03 Aug 2017

The Journal of High Energy Physics (JHEP) celebrated its 20th anniversary in July 2017. The open access journal belongs to the international School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) in Trieste, Italy, and is published by Springer in collaboration with SISSA Medialab srl. JHEP covers world-leading research in high-energy physics, as well as related topics including general relativity, gravitation, and mathematical aspects of quantum field theories.

When JHEP was founded by Daniele Amati and Loriano Bonora in July 1997, the aim was to create a journal which would allow physicists to write, submit, referee and edit papers in an electronic format - a concept that was very new at the time. As a result of this foresight, JHEP soon became one of the most prestigious journals in the field.

Since 2014, the costs of publishing open access in the journal (the article processing charges, APCs) have been completely covered by the Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics (SCOAP3).

- 19 Jul 2017

Academic publisher SAGE Publishing has announced that SAGE Research Methods Video has received an Award of Excellence and Index on Censorship magazine has received a Grand Award from the Annual Awards for Publication Excellence (APEX Awards). SAGE Research Methods Video is a collection of nearly 500 streaming videos launched in 2016 designed to teach students and researchers the research process. Index on Censorship is a magazine devoted to protecting and promoting free expression. Its 250th anniversary issue was honoured by the award.

SAGE Research Methods Video contains more than 125 hours of video: tutorials, case study videos, expert interviews, and more, covering the entire research methods and statistics curriculum. As a publisher in these areas with 50 years' experience producing high quality pedagogical materials, SAGE brought together the fields' leading figures and its own bestselling authors to produce the collection.

This is the second APEX Award bestowed on SAGE's pedagogical video collections, which are used by library customers, students, and faculty who teach research methods and researchers around the world. SAGE Video, which now contains eight subject collections spanning the social sciences, received the APEX Award of Excellence in 2016. The awards demonstrate SAGE's success in meeting the growing demand for pedagogical video in Higher Education. Dedicated to further enhancing research skillsets among students and researchers, a new collection titled Practical Research and Academic Skills will be released in January 2018.

Of the 1,361 products nominated in the 2017 APEX Awards competition, only 100 received a Grand Award. Titled Danger in Truth: Truth in Danger, the 250th anniversary issue of Index on Censorship focuses on the increasing threats - such as physical violence, kidnapping, and more - that journalists are facing on a global scale.

Founded in 1972, Index on Censorship reports on free expression violations around the world, publishes banned writing, and explores free expression issues through original and challenging commentary and analysis. Publishing an interview with Margaret Atwood in its latest issue, the magazine often features insights from world-renowned authors.

The APEX Awards recognise outstanding quality in publishing by professional communicators across a broad range of categories including: graphic design, editorial content, and overall success. 2017 marks the competition's 29th year.
