The Journal of High Energy Physics is a peer-reviewed, open access scientific journal covering the field of high energy physics. It is published by Springer Science+Business Media on behalf of the International School for Advanced Studies. The journal is part of the SCOAP3 initiative.
Journal of High Energy Physics is organized as follows:
- Scientific Director
- Advisory Board
- Editorial Board
- Editorial Office at SISSA Medialab
- Publishing Office at Springer
The Scientific Director is in charge of supervising the Editorial Board and monitoring the quality of the Journal. The Scientific Director is first instance for an appeal in cases of disagreement between authors and editors.
The members of the Advisory Board periodically review the Journal and advise on its scientific policy.
The Editorial Board is JHEP's most important asset. Editors are in charge of the peer-review of submissions and take themselves the final decision on whether or not to publish a contribution, thus taking full responsibility for the article review. JHEP has a large Editorial Board, in order to provide competent coverage for all the areas indicated by the keywords and thus avoid generic decisions or the inappropriate selection of referees. The Editor in charge can assess the article him/herself or send it to one or more referees.
The Editorial Office is in charge of supervising the functioning of the Journal in collaboration with the Editorial Board.
The Editorial Office monitors the Journal daily, provides assistance to authors, editors and referees, and takes action in close collaboration with the Scientific Director in the event of any problems or delay that may arise.
The Publishing Office at Springer is responsible for the distribution of the Journal, including the publication of accepted contributions.
