Access data from the search and detailed record pages programmatically
JSON-based: in contrast to the API on the old INSPIRE, the new API uses JSON as primary data format, which is easy to use in a vast number of programming languages, and uses human-readable and well-documented fields.
Other formats, like BibTeX or LaTeX, are directly available and don’t require extracting them from an HTML page
The old API on https://old.inspirehep.net/ will soon be deprecated. If you have been using the old API, please adapt your scripts accordingly. The instructions on how to use the new API are found here.
In the next few weeks, we plan to allow filtering the API response, so you can get only the part of the records you’re interested in.
The new API is in active development, so feel free to inform us in case of issues or suggestions by creating an issue or contacting us at <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
Past and future seminars can be searched for and filtered by series and subjects.
Times are displayed in your timezone.
Speakers and affiliations are linked to their INSPIRE pages.
How do I post a new seminar?
As the seminar database is populated and maintained by users, anyone with an ORCID can submit new entries:
Click on Submit > Seminar on the top right of the page.
2. Login with your ORCID to submit a new seminar.
3. The seminar appears immediately in the list of seminars.
The submitter is able to modify a seminar any time via the edit buttons that appear in the bottom of each entry.
The High-Energy Physics community’s feedback has always been part of shaping and improving INSPIRE. If you have more ideas or features that would improve your experience with the new INSPIRE seminars, please contact us at <email@example.com> with feedback or suggestions.
The new Institutions collection allows users to search for institutions in High Energy Physics. It features:
Links from author affiliations to the institution’s page
List of authors affiliated with the institution
List of papers from the institution
Citation summary of the papers from the institution
Author profiles now display names of their advisors.
First author search
First author search is now available by typing ‘fa’ before an author name, eg. fa einstein,a
Search with texkey
A popular request from the community has been to support searches using the texkey eg: Einstein:1916vd . This is now implemented, see the example here.

Following the new INSPIRE release and community feedback, we are pleased to announce the first of a series of improvements:
Search results display
The display of search results is improved, making it easier to read through them.
Results per page
Users are now able to select the number of results per page: 25, 50, 100 or 250. This option is available at the bottom of the search results next to the number of pages.
Improved author search
Following user reports on specific author searches, the search results have been improved in the “Authors” tab.
The way files and figures are handled and displayed has been improved, a reported bug in the citation summary has been fixed and all redirect links from the old INSPIRE have been corrected.

A year after releasing the INSPIRE beta version, we are delighted to announce the official release of the new, upgraded and more featureful INSPIRE. Built on top of a modern and reliable software architecture, the new INSPIRE aims at bringing the best out of the existing features while introducing new ones. Its modern, scalable and robust framework provides a solid foundation for fast and responsive services, intuitive search and comprehensive author profiles.
Intuitive search, easy filtering, interactive citation summary: Take a quick tour of our new features by clicking on ‘Take the tour’ under the Help menu.
Citation counts may differ between the old and the new INSPIRE platforms. Learn more here.
Old INSPIRE end-of-life
The old interface will remain accessible for a limited time at https://old.inspirehep.net/ and will be switched off by June 2020. We are actively looking for community feedback to make sure the important features are implemented in the new version. For feature requests, please contact us via the form.
API and tools on INSPIRE
If you have been using the API, we’d like to hear from you! For the time being, you can still use the API by pointing explicitly to https://old.inspirehep.net/. At the same time, we are working on a new public JSON API and we are currently investigating the community needs: the information and features you would like to see in the new API, the applications you have in mind, and how these could be integrated with INSPIRE. Contact us at <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
During this transition period, for feature requests, please fill in your feedback here. For any other request, you can contact us at <email@example.com>.
Redesigned to match the new INSPIRE style, this database gathers thousands of HEP conferences taking place around the globe. It enables users to refine conference search results by subject and date, but it also gives clear access to proceedings and contributions that might be linked to a particular conference. Additionally, from now on, when one submits a conference, it will be published immediately on INSPIRE.
So, let’s see how all of this looks like in more detail!
You can start searching for conferences by selecting the option via our dropdown menu straight from the homepage:
Available Search Filters: Date and Subject
Users are able to narrow down their conference search by date and subject.
As per default, the featured conferences will be the upcoming ones, so the respective button will be in blue. However, users can change this by selecting a start and, eventually, an end date from the calendar or typing a date directly in the bar, in which case, the upcoming conferences button will be switched off automatically.
Let’s perform a search to see this in practice!
For now, we’ll only select a date, randomly:
Date selected, we hit “search”:
The results will always be ordered by most recent. Since we have too many, let’s now narrow them down by selecting a subject or few:
Do note that subjects filter each other out. So, the more you select, the less results you’ll see, as the search will return only those conferences that cover all the subjects you selected.
Now, if we add “ichep” as our keyword, all other things remaining the same:
Narrowing down by subjects:
Conference Record Overview
Straight from the search results page, you’ll be able to see an overview of a conference record.
For example, in the below screenshot, we can see the conference name, date, venue, website, subjects covered during the event (keywords), as well as contributions and proceedings linked to the conference:
Once you’ve clicked on a conference record, you will also be able to view which series it belongs to and its main contacts:
Plus, you will see the entire list of contributions to the conference, which you can further narrow down papers by subject and collaboration, and sort by most recent or cited.
Conference Submission Form
If you would like to submit a new conference to INSPIRE, you can do so by clicking on ‘Submit’ on the top right of the page:
In addition to being a valuable source of high-energy physics content, INSPIRE aims to build and foster a community of authors and users who will benefit from our website in more ways than one.
Step by step, we are moving towards a more user-friendly interface that will be more powerful, with a slew of new features, so both authors and other visitors can make the most of INSPIRE.
To that end, we’ve not only implemented an improved algorithm to calculate citations even more reliably, but also added additional citation information to author profile pages, which can be customized and filtered to suit specific criteria. All of these are now available on INSPIRE beta, when one consults an author page.
Now, let’s see each new feature in more detail!
Citations per year
From now on, users will be able to view per-year citation graphs on author pages in an interactive way, as they hover over years to see how many citations an author had at a particular time.
Citation Summary Graph
Our new interactive citation summary graph has been designed to facilitate paper browsing by allowing users to narrow down the options by selecting a number of filters for that purpose.
As you can see, this graph shows how many citeable and published papers an author produced.
In case you wonder, “citeable” are the papers have metadata that allow us to reliably track their citations. Published papers are believed to have undergone rigorous peer review.
By clicking on a bar, search results are automatically updated to show papers that are part of each category:
Just below the graph, the results will be featured, with a useful filtering box on the left. This box allows further result refinement, with the option to filter by the number of authors, collaborators (co-authors), document type or collaboration. If you want to modify your search results, you will have to manually uncheck those filters you don’t want applied anymore.
Finally, you can also sort papers by most recent and most cited via a sorting dropdown menu:
We sincerely hope you’ll like the improvements we’ve made to author profile pages. Let us know what you think by sending us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org – any feedback is always welcome!
