The 2012 of the Review of Particle Physics , called the PDG for short, will run to over 1,400 pages in print and will be mailed in July to over 16,000 subscribers, with a condensed, 320-page Particle Physics Booklet to follow in September. However, the online version of the PDG has just been posted at http://pdg.lbl.gov.
The PDG has been compiled and issued every two years since 1957 by the international Particle Data Group, currently consisting of almost 200 scientists from 22 countries and based at the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab). The PDG's 2012 edition contains results from experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and contains the latest data on Higgs bosons, supersymmetry, B mesons, and much more. The new edition also reviews the status of cosmology research, with summaries of the latest results on the Big Bang, dark matter, dark energy, and the early universe.
