News from the Library: 2010 A record year for CERN publications

Last year, CERN authors published more articles than in any previous year.


546 journal articles written or co-authored by CERN authors and published in 2010 can be found at the CERN Document server. This is about 25% more than the previous year. Contributions to conference proceedings have increased by over 50%! There are currently 867 but this number is still rising as more conference proceedings are submitted.

The actual numbers for journal articles, conference contributions, and theses completed in 2010 under partial CERN supervision are available on the Annual Report page. This page also shows the distribution of articles by journal (the Journal of High Energy Physics coming out on top, with 88 articles), publisher, and research areas.
