About the Journal

The journal is not necessarily looking for cutting edge research but research of use and of interest not necessarily of moderate to high impact. Anything that is a valid, new and useful contribution to the science of astronomy and related fields is acceptable, however small. 

This is not limited to but includes the following:

Preliminary or speculative research (especially where the researcher may not continue to pursue the object of interest).

Unconfirmed but potential discoveries

Actual Discoveries of single objects

Null Results (including warnings of probable null results where research was cancelled due to this.)

Observing Lore that has not been published but usually ‘handed down’

Replication studies of previous research

Useful contributions from non-optimal instrumentation

Heavily data-based contributions (as long as there is a good rationale for it being heavily data, rather than interpretive)

Review articles, small and large, of patches of the sky, patches of the universe, interesting subsets of astronomical objects or discoveries or patches of the scientific literature.

Historical articles

Case Studies

Instrumentation Design and Calibration Studies.

Software Design

Tutorials for Observing Techniques and Data Analysis

Detailed Information about New Projects, Observatories and Sites

Computational Astronomy and Visualisation

Theoretical Modelling

Outlines of Methodology

Open Access. No page charges. No page limits. No Figure Limits. No Reference Limits. This doesn’t mean “unlimited”, it still needs to be concise (dense and to the point) enough and provide enough information to pass peer review.
