Aims & Scope


International Journal of Astronomy and Astrophysics (IJAA) is an international scientific journal dedicated to the publication and public discussion of high quality original research in all the fields of astrophysics and space sciences and related technology. All the manuscripts must be prepared in English and are subject to a rigorous and fair peer-review process. Generally, accepted papers will appear online within 3 weeks followed by printed hard copy.


The journal publishes original papers including but not limited to the following fields:

  • · Astrogeodynamics
  • · Astrophysics
  • · Cosmic Rays and Gamma Astronomy
  • · Dynamics of Celestial Bodies in the Solar System and Artificial Bodies
  • · Extrasolar Planets
  • · Formation and Evolution of Galaxies and Their Clusters
  • · Formation and Evolution of Stars
  • · Heliospheric Physics
  • · High-Energy and Cataclysmic Processes in Astrophysics
  • · Interstellar Matter
  • · Interstellar Medium: Star Formation Regions
  • · Kinematics and Structure of the Galaxy
  • · Large-Scale Structure of Universe Formation and Evolution of Galaxies
  • · Last stages of Stellar Evolution and Chemical Evolution of the Galaxy
  • · Magnetospheric Physics
  • · Microquasars and High-Energy Astrophysics
  • · Neutron Astronomy
  • · New Astronomical Techniques and Methods
  • · Planets, Comets, Asteroids and Dust
  • · Pulsar Magnetospheres
  • · Solar and Stellar Physics
  • · Solar Magnetic Activity and Heliogeospace Environments
  • · Solar/Interstellar Terrestrial Relations
  • · Solar-Terrestrial Physics and Space Weather
  • · Space Observation and Exploration
  • · Supernovae and Evolution of the Universe

  • We are also interested in short papers, as in the form of a letter, that clearly address a specific narrow problem and in papers that survey problems and new results pertaining to a certain topic. Authors may be invited to write short papers on the same topic in more than one successive issue of IJAA.
