We would like to announce the appointment of a new scientific director for JHEP.
Following the general procedures of the journal a search committee was formed aiming to identify a person of the appropriate scientific standing, as well as a believer in our non profit making philosophy for scholarly publishing.
The committee has identified in Prof. Yaron Oz, Rector of Tel Aviv University, and longtime editor of the journal, the suitable candidate. Moreover, the committee has indentified in Martin Beneke, chair of the Theoretical Elementary Particle Physics department at Technische Universität München, the right candidate as vice director of the journal. Prof. Oz and Prof. Beneke took on their new task on July 1st 2018. We are confident that they will fulfill their roles with the highest level of competence and authority, and are eager to offer them all our support and assistance.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Prof. Marc Henneaux for his invaluable contribution to the Journal over the last 12 years: his precious guidance was crucial to JHEP becoming the leading journal in the field. We will in particular miss the deep care, passion and respect for everybody involved with which Marc has carried out this delicate task.
Lastly, we would like to thank Prof. Adam Schwimmer for his contribution to the journal both as editor since the journal's beginning and as assistant director.
