Research Institutions

HEP and Astrophysics Institutions
SPIRES database of over 6,500 high-energy physics and astropartcle physics institutes, laboratories, and university departments in which research on particle physics is performed. Covers six continents and over a hundred countries. Provides an alphabetical list by country or an interface that is searchable by name, acronym, location, etc. Includes address, telephone and fax numbers, e-mail, and Web links where available. Has links to the recent HEP papers from each institution. Maintained by SLAC, DESY and Fermilab libraries.
HEP Institutes
Contains almost a thousand institutional addresses used in the CERN Library catalog. Includes, where available, the following: telephone and fax numbers; e-mail; and Web links. Provides free text searching and result sorting by organization, country, or town.
Top 500 Institutions in High-Energy Physics
Lists the 500 HEP-related organizations and universities that have published the most papers in the past five years, as identified from the SPIRES HEP Database. Provides active links to the home pages and full INSTITUTIONS database records. Listed by country, and then alphabetically by institution.


Searchable worldwide database of over 40,000 people associated with particle physics, synchrotron radiation, and related fields. Provides e-mail addresses, country in which the person is currently working, and a SPIRES HEP database search for their papers. If individuals have supplied additional information, listings will also include the countries in which they did their undergraduate and graduate work, their professional url, and their (former) major professor as well as their current and past graduate students. It also provides listings of Nobel Laureates, country statistics, Lab Directors, etc.
