INSPIRE is the leading information platform for High Energy Physics (HEP) literature which provides users with high quality, curated content covering the entire corpus of HEP literature and the fulltext of all such articles that are Open Access.

INSPIRE empowers scientists with new tools to discover and access the results most relevant to their research; enables novel text-and data-mining applications and new metrics to assess the impact of articles and authors.

INSPIRE is a collaboration among four High Energy Physics laboratories: CERN, DESY, Fermilab, IHEP and SLAC.

See more information here about INSPIRE and it's users.

General information

Task management

We use Asana for tracking tasks and projects in our team. You can ask or for access to our project.

See the Asana guidelines.

Regular meetings (CERN time zone)

  • We hold an optional daily (Monday-Thursday) standup meeting 16.30-16.45 with presence from all the labs in the collaboration. We use Vidyo software for this meeting.

  • Every Monday, the Invenio Developer Forum takes place at 16.45 in the IT building. New and current developments related to the Invenio software are presented and discussed.

Teams and Responsibilities

The CERN INSPIRE team consists of many software developers, information scientists and librarians from all over Europe. Most of which are students here on placement during Bachelor/Master/Ph.D studies as well as fellows/staff.

This team is then divided into these major responsibilities:

  • Data management and curation
  • Development
  • Outreach & Community
  • Operations


For configuration guides (puppet, openstack) start here.
