On Friday, May 13th – the last day of the Spring School on Superstring Theory and Related Topics at the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) in Trieste – the afternoon was dedicated to JHEP:

SISSA Director Andrea Romanino presented an overview of 25 years of JHEP at SISSA, which was complemented by Christian Caron looking back on 12 years of the Springer/JHEP collaboration and especially the negotiation, implementation and continuation of SCOAP3 open access funding.

JHEP Editor Matthias Gaberdiel from the ETH Zürich Switzerland spoke about the role of JHEP editors – all experts in the areas covered by JHEP – who take full responsibility for the peer-reviewing including the final decision to accept or reject an article.
