Featured article: Selection and processing of calibration samples to measure the particle identification performance of the LHCb experiment in Run 2

Since 2015, the LHCb experiment has been empowered with a dedicated computing model to select and analyse calibration samples to measure the performance of the particle identification detectors and algorithms. The novel technique was developed within the framework of the innovative trigger model of the LHCb experiment, which relies on online event reconstruction for most of the datasets, reserving offline reconstruction to special physics cases. The strategy to select and process the calibration samples, which includes a dedicated data-processing scheme combining online and offline reconstruction, is discussed.

CERN pays the APC

© CERNCERN is now sponsoring the article-processing charges of manuscripts submitted to EPJ Techniques and Instrumentation that are authored by at least one CERN-affiliated author. Since the launch of SCOAP3 in 2014, all CERN physics results have been required to be published open access. This policy has now been expanded to also include instrumentation articles, and we are pleased that CERN has chosen to support EPJ TI in this initiative. 

If you think you are eligible for this sponsorship, please contact us before submitting your article.

Aims and scope

EPJ Techniques and Instrumentation focuses on the design, implementation, and application of new techniques in all areas of the physical and applied sciences. Of particular interest to the journal are advances produced by:

  • Laboratory-specific custom instrumentation and diagnostics
  • Innovative and clever experimental techniques
  • Subtle refinements to established experimental setups
  • Novel analytical methods

Papers in the journal should summarize a novel, significant result, and provide a detailed description of the equipment, methods, or techniques used to produce the result. They may also include discussions of underlying theory, and/or potential cross-disciplinary applications.

EPJ Techniques and Instrumentation publishes regular articles, as well as short commentary articles intended to promote discussion and debate. Reviews of known techniques, or of open questions in emerging fields, are also strongly encouraged. This fully Open Access journal is devoted to the broad, timely, and public dissemination of information.

About EPJ

EPJ is a rapidly growing series of internationally reputed, peer-reviewed journals that are indexed in all major citation databases. The editorial boards of the EPJ are composed of leading specialists in their respective fields and have made it their mission to uphold the highest standards of scientific quality in the journals. EPJ started in the late 1990s as a merger and co-publication of Zeitschrift für Physik (Springer), Journal de Physique (EDP Sciences) and Il Nuovo Cimento (Società Italiana di Fisica) covering all aspects of the pure and applied physical sciences. Its spectrum has since expanded to encompass many interdisciplinary topics, including complexity and data sciences.
