The Astronomical Journal

Founded in 1849 and published by the American Astronomical Society with an emphasis on observational papers. Its expanded coverage of quasars, galaxies, supernova remnants, and studies of the interstellar medium complements the more traditional areas of astronomy, including galactic structure and dynamics, astrometry, variable and binary stars, solar system studies, and cosmology.

Astronomische Nachrichten

Founded in 1821 by H.C. Schumacher, is the oldest astronomical journal worldwide still being published. Publishes papers on all fields of astronomy and astrophysics and review papers on special and current topics. The journal covers a wide range of issues reaching from cosmology, extragalactic research, cosmic hydrodynamics, stellar physics, interstellar matter, solar and planetary physics to geodetic astronomy.

Astronomy and Astrophysics

A European Journal that publishes papers on all aspects of astronomy and astrophysics: theoretical, observational and instrumental, independently of the techniques used to obtain the results: numerical analysis, optical, radio, particles, and space vehicles.

The Astrophysical Journal

Founded in 1895 and published by the American Astronomical Society. It is devoted to recent developments, discoveries, and theories in astronomy and astrophysics. Quasars, pulsars, neutron stars, black holes, solar and stellar magnetic fields, X-rays, and interstellar matter. In addition, videos that complement specific issues are periodically available.

Astrophysics and Space Science

Publishes original contributions, invited reviews and conference proceedings over the entire range of astronomy and astrophysics. It publishes observational and theoretical papers as well as those concerned with the techniques of instrumentation. Observational papers can include data from ground-based, space, and atmospheric facilities.

Celestial Mechanics and Dynamical Astronomy

An international journal concerned with the broadest range of dynamical astronomy and its applications, as well as with peripheral fields. The papers published include treatments of the mathematical, physical and computational aspects of planetory theory, lunar theory, general and special perturbation theory, ephemerides, resonance theory, geodesy of the Earth and the planets, dynamics, the 3-body problem, the N-body problem, space mechanics, ring systems, galactic dynamics, reference frames, time, relativity, nongravitational forces, computer methods, computer languages for analytical developments, and database management.


The official publication of the Division for Planetary Sciences of the American Astronomical Society. It is dedicated to reporting the results of new research --observational, experimental, or theoretical-- concerning the astronomy, geology, meteorology, physics, chemistry, biology, and other scientific aspects of our solar system or extrasolar systems.

International Journal of Infrared and Millimeter Waves

A resource for rapid dissemination of the results of original research in millimeter, submillimeter, and far infrared theory, techniques, devices, systems, spectroscopy, and applications.

Irish Astronomical Journal

Independent professional journal focusing on modern astronomical knowledge and related subjects.

Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society

Publishes the results of original research in positional and dynamical astronomy, astrophysics, radio astronomy, cosmology, space research and the design of astronomical instruments.

New Astronomy

Publishes articles in all fields of astronomy and astrophysics: theoretical, observational and instrumental. Includes full length research articles and letter articles. The Journal covers solar, planetary, stellar, galactic and extragalactic astronomy and astrophysics. It reports on original research in all wavelength bands, ranging from radio to gamma-ray.

Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific

Publishes original research papers in all areas of astronomy covering all wavelengths and distance scales as well as papers on the latest innovations in astronomical instrumentation, data analysis, and software.

Space Science Reviews

An international journal containing invited review papers on space science, defined for the purpose as scientific research carried out by means of rockets, rocket-propelled vehicles, and partly also by stratospheric balloons and at observatories on the Earth or Moon. The journal is principally concerned with the purely scientific aspects of the subject, but instrumental and technical aspects also receive attention.
