Notes on adding to HEPNames

  • Name
    Your name should provide a unique and exhaustive (1 to 1) link to all your papers in the HEP literature database (see our Author searching discussion). This can usually be accomplished by including your middle initial, but it's best to include as much information as possible, e.g.
    NAME = Churchill, Winston S.;
    You should also ensure that all your papers in HEP have your name written correctly (please contact spires@slac.stanford.edu if any of your papers in HEP need to be modified).
  • Affiliation
    This should be written as it is for your records in HEP (e.g. St. Petersburg, INP). This enables us to cross link between HEPNames and the Institutions database. You are allowed to have more than one affiliation if you wish. If you don't have enough boxes, just include a note in the comments section, and we will sort it out.
  • Email You may have more than one email address if you wish, but it's probably more convenient to to just have the one and set up forwarding if you visit somewhere else.
  • URL
    The best place for detailed information about yourself (phone and fax numbers, research interests, etc) is your web page. Even a very simple web page is incredibly useful to someone wanting to find out more about you. However, as a substitute, you might want to put your group or department's web page.
  • Ph.D. advisor/supervisor
    Please enter this in the form, e.g.,
    Jones, D.R.T
    So that it matches the entry in HEPNames for Dr Jones. This allows us to search all the students of, in this case, D.R.T. Jones.
  • Ph.D./Undergraduate institution
    Once again, this should be in the form given in the Institutions database.
  • Field
    Describes the physics you generally do based on eprint archive (you may have more than one):
    acc-phys, astro-ph, atom-ph, chao-dyn, climate, comp, cond-mat, genl-th, gr-qc, hep-ex, hep-lat, hep-ph, hep-th, instr, librarian, math, math-ph, med-phys, nlin, nucl-ex, nucl-th, physics, plasma-phys, q-bio, quant-ph, ssrl, other.
      If you have left physics, this should be the sort of physics you were trained in.
    ACTIVE: currently working in HEP
    DEPARTED: left physics to pursue a different career
    RETIRED: retired, but possibly still pursuing some research

Add or Modify Your Entry in HEPNames

If you are currently listed in the SPIRES-HEP HEPNames database, but want to modify your information -- search for on your name and then click the update button.

If you are involved with high-energy physics and are not in HEPNames, you can request that we add you to the HEP Names database.

Questions or comments can be sent to the SLAC HEPNames Database Administrator at hepnames@slac.stanford.edu.

SPIRES HEP was a joint project of SLAC, DESY & FNAL as well as the worldwide HEP community.
It was superseeded by INSPIRE
