Geneva, 20 September 2016. After three years of successful operation and growth, CERN announced today the continuation of the global SCOAP3 Open Access initiative for at least three more years. SCOAP3, the Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics, is an innovative partnership of over 3 000 libraries, funding agencies and research organisations from 44 countries. It has made tens of thousands of scientific articles freely available to everyone, with neither cost nor barrier for any author worldwide.
Geneva, 5 September 2016. Today, the Romanian flag has been raised in front of CERN for the first time, marking the country’s accession to Membership of the Organization.
Geneva, 10 August 2016. In a paper published by the journal JHEP today, the MoEDAL experiment at CERN narrows the window of where to search for a hypothetical particle, the magnetic monopole. Over the last decades, experiments have been trying to find evidence for magnetic monopoles at accelerators, including at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider. Such particles were first predicted by physicist Paul Dirac in the 1930s but have never been observed so far.
