Chinese Physics C (High Energy Physics and Nuclear Physics) is a science periodical focusing on specialized fields with its first issue published in 1977. It is sponsored by the Chinese Physical Society, and supported by the Institute of High Energy Physics and the Institute of Modern Physics, the Chinese Academy of Sciences and distributed monthly.
This journal publishes research papers written in English on theories, experiments and applications in Particle Physics, Nuclear Physics, Astrophysics and Cosmology related to particles and nuclei, Detectors and Experimental Methods, Accelerators, Synchrotron Radiation and other related fields . It covers current achievements in these fields, especially obtained in China, and promotes the academic exchange with foreign physicists. It contains a special column called ``Rapid Communications'' carrying short reports on the latest important scientific results, published as fast as in 1 ～ 4 months. The breakthrough researches, especially those supported by State Projects and National Natural Science Foundation of China will have very high priority for publication.

They are responsible to invite and review the papers to be published, ensuring the scientific quality of the journal. There are also experienced professional editors to keep the high level production. The articles carried in this journal have been widely quoted in China, and quite a number of them have been selected for national awards and the prizes of provinces and
ministries. The journal has been one of the leading journals all along in high energy physics and nuclear physics in China.
This journal has been indexed by all the authoritative indexing systems in China and many major international indexing systems in the world, such as SCI(CC) and CA in US, SA in UK, Japanese JICST and РЖ in Russia.
The journal has been selected by the Chinese Academy of Sciences as an excellent journal in 1990, 1992, 1996 and 2000.
