Publications and Presentations

A list of all the papers from STAR Collaboration, including figures, data tables and links to PDF files in the ArXiV and Journal websites, can be found in the STAR Publication Database. The CERN Document Server. is the database for many papers of experiments at CERN, including a searchable database of all the CMS papers. The papers related to the field of heavy ions from CMS can be found in the Heavy-Ion public results twiki from CMS.
