I am delighted to present the CQG Highlights of 2016 which are now free to read.  This prestigious annual collection is selected by the editorial board and includes notable papers on gravitational waves, black holes, general relativity, cosmology, quantum gravity and more.

As well as being free to read on the web, each paper is promoted by the journal in a number of campaigns.  Watch for the CQG Highlights brochure at your next conference.

CQG Highlights remains one of CQG’s most popular promotions.  Don’t miss your chance to be included in CQG Highlights of 2017 by publishing your next great paper in CQG.

The latest CQG Highlights are now available to view.  These papers represent the most interesting and important work published in CQG in 2015.  They were selected by the CQG Editorial Board and approved at CQG’s recent annual board meeting in London.

This year marks a break from the process used in past years.  CQG Highlights used to be Continue reading

I am delighted to announce the CQG Highlights of 2014-2015.  The collection is free to read until 31 December 2016.

How are the Highlights selected?

Each summer, the Editorial Board of Classical and Quantum Gravity convene in London for the journal’s annual Editorial Board meeting. In advance of the meeting, Board members submit proposed Highlights published in CQG in the previous 12 months. That list is discussed in the meeting: some papers are added to the list, others removed. Ultimately, the Highlights are approved by the Editor-in-Chief.

It’s a thorough process and the result is perhaps the best recognized collection in gravitational physics.

I would like to congratulate every author whose work was selected to be a Highlight this year and invite all authors to publish with CQG. A paper submitted today could be a Highlight by this time next year.

CQG LettersDon’t forget that you can now publish Letters in CQG. CQG Letters are required to be high quality, so they stand a good chance of being selected as Highlights.  CQG Letters will also feature in promotions here at CQG+. Submit your CQG Letter today.

The articles span the whole of CQG’s subject scope and include focus issue articles and topical reviews in addition to regular papers. All of the Highlights articles are free to download until the end of 2015.

As part of the promotion of the Highlights we produce an annual Highlights brochure which contains further information about journal activity including forthcoming special issues and prize Continue reading
