The editors and publishers of the AAS journals — The Astronomical Journal and The Astrophysical Journal, Letters, and Supplement — are conducting a series of workshops for authors and referees at AAS meetings and other suitable venues. The workshops are aimed mainly at young and early-career astronomers.
The editors of many astronomy journals (ApJ, AJ, A&A, MNRAS, PASP, PASJ, and RevMexAA) have adopted these subject keywords as a means of classifying articles in the journals.
Some of these links may require a subscription to the journal.
The continual expansion of capabilities in electronic publishing are now allowing us to expand our abilities to publish machine-readable tables as part of our on-line journals. We now have expanded these capabilities, by producing and posting standard format, machine-readable versions of long tables. Unlike the normal ASCII tables which only contain the raw, tab delimitted data, these machine readable tables are formatted in a standard way so that the information can be easily read into a computer.
Including author names using Chinese, Japanese and Korean characters
Instructions and samples of citations and reference lists.
These guidelines cover AJ and ApJ (the main journal (Part 1), the Letters (Part 2), and the Supplement Series).
Begun in 1895 by George E. Hale and James E. Keeler, The Astrophysical Journal is the foremost research journal in the world devoted to recent developments, discoveries, and theories in astronomy and astrophysics
Founded in 1849 by Benjamin A. Gould, the AJ publishes original astronomical research, with an emphasis on significant scientific results derived from observations, including descriptions of data capture, surveys, analysis techniques, and astrophysical interpretation.
Permission to Use Non-AAS Material in AAS Journals
When you submit an article for publication in an AAS journal and you choose to use material (including short extracts or diagrams) published previously by other authors in journals other than those of the AAS, then you must first obtain the written permission of the author and the publisher concerned. You must submit evidence that all the necessary permissions have been obtained when you submit your article.
LaTeX is the preferred format. However, Microsoft Word guidelines are available if needed.
Guidelines for electronically submitting figures as Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) files.
Authors are strongly encouraged to submit their papers electronically to speed up peer review and facilitate the production process. This can be done via the web using online submission forms that are available for each journal.
AAS journals encourage authors to exploit the capabilities offered by the electronic medium to enhance articles published in AJ and ApJ with the inclusion of content (at an additional charge) that cannot be incorporated in the print versions of the journals.
