The CERN Courier is evolving

From its first issue in 1959 to today, the CERN Courier magazine has gone through several transformations. Now is the time to help shape its future. (Image: Cristina Agrigoroae/CERN)

First published in August 1959, the CERN Courier continues to keep the international high-energy physics community informed of the latest developments across the field. The Courier seeks not just to report news, but also to offer researchers an opportunity to share their research for the benefit of the field as a whole.

A glance through the magazine’s back catalogue is a journey through the rise of the Standard Model of particle physics, the growing connections between particle physics and cosmology/astrophysics, the increasing scale and complexity of accelerators, detectors and computing, and the shift from small to international collaborations involving thousands of people. Today, in this large and complex landscape, and as physicists work out how best to explore the world beyond the Standard Model, communication is as important as ever.

That’s why we are making changes to the CERN Courier website, in a first step towards a more dynamic online presence. The fully revamped site is set to launch in 2019.

To help guide the Courier’s evolution, both in print and online, and for the chance to win some CERN merchandise, you’re invited to give feedback via an online survey. The survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete and will close at the end of August 2018.
