AAS Journals Will Switch to Open Access

Post by hazarry »

Research results in astronomy, solar physics, and planetary science are about to become more widely accessible to scientists and the public alike. The American Astronomical Society (AAS), a leading nonprofit professional association for astronomers, today announced the switch of its prestigious journals to fully open access (OA) as of 1 January 2022.


Under this change, all articles in the AAS journal portfolio will be immediately open for anyone to freely read. The transition will affect the:
Astronomical Journal (AJ) https://aj.aas.org/ ,
the Astrophysical Journal (ApJ) https://apj.aas.org/,
Astrophysical Journal Letters (ApJL) https://apjl.aas.org/, and
the Astrophysical Journal Supplement Series (ApJS) https://apjs.aas.org/ ;
the Planetary Science Journal https://psj.aas.org/ ,
the AAS’s newest journal published in partnership with its Division for Planetary Sciences, is already fully open access.
