An End of an Era: Journal of High Energy Physics (JHEP)
In 1997, JHEP was created by SISSA (International School for Advanced Studies) as an open access journal, free for authors and free to readers. It was supported by grants and funding bodies. In 2002, the Institute of Physics (IoP) entered into a partnership with SISSA and took over online publication and subscription management. SISSA remained in control of peer review and submissions. IoP converted JHEP into a low-cost, subscription-based publication. In 2007, IoP added open access options. Beginning in January 2010, SISSA will transfer JHEP online publication, subscription services, and open access options to Springer.
