This year the Journal of Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics (JCAP) celebrates its 20th anniversary. To mark this important anniversary, the electronic journal owned by SISSA and IOP publishing, managed and published by SISSA Medialab, is now presenting a Special Issue with a selection of articles published throughout its history.

"A journal by scientists for scientists" is the motto that has driven JCAP since its inception, which epitomises its philosophy of being an innovative and community-driven journal. Over the past two decades, JCAP has become one of the premier outlets for high-quality research, now publishing circa 800 papers per year, almost all of which are Open Access (either green or gold route), and with submissions originating from more than 60 countries around the world. JCAP encompasses theoretical, observational, and experimental areas as well as computation and simulation, and this special issue represents a testament to the role of the journal and its impact within the fields of cosmology and astroparticle physics. Over the years, JCAP has published influential papers on topics ranging from the early universe and dark matter to large-scale structure, gravitational waves, and high-energy astrophysics, all of which are presented in this celebratory collection of the journal's 20th year of publication.

Another special issue, with original research articles, is scheduled for October 2023.
