The Journal of High Energy Physics (JHEP) is an open-access journal, APCs completely covered SCOAP3 (scoap3.org) and licensed under CC BY 4.0. JHEP is owned by the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA - Trieste, Italy) and published by Springer. The objective in running the journal is to capitalise on the innovative advantages of the new media: rapidity of communication, broad diffusion and the ability to run and distribute a journal solely by electronic means. By introducing an automated and electronic peer review system, JHEP complements the present system of preprint distribution via the online arXiv service that has so successfully replaced the conventional system.

Article submissions and single-blind refereeing are handled by the JHEP Editorial Office at SISSA Medialab. Please visit jhep.sissa.it to submit a paper for publication.

JHEP is organised as follows:

  • Scientific Director
  • Vice Director (Martin Beneke)
  • Advisory Board
  • Editorial Board
  • Editorial Office

The Scientific Director is in charge of supervising the Editorial Board and monitoring the quality of the journal.

The members of the Advisory Board periodically review the journal and advise on its scientific policy. The Advisory Board is consulted by the Scientific Director in the event of a major disagreement between Authors and Editors.

The Editorial Board is JHEP's most important asset. Editors are in charge and take full responsibility for the peer-review of submissions. They can assess preprints themselves or send it to one or more referees and take the final decision on whether or not to publish them. 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 Editorial Office is in charge of supervising the functioning of the journal in collaboration with the Editorial Board. SISSA Medialab, where the Editorial Office is based, runs the software system that automates the editorial process.
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.
