International Journal of Astronomy, Astrophysics and Space Science
International Journal of Astronomy, Astrophysics and Space Science publishes original contributions and invited reviews covering the entire range of astronomy, astrophysics, astrophysical cosmology, planetary and space science and the astrophysical aspects of astrobiology. This includes both observational and theoretical research, the techniques of astronomical instrumentation and data analysis and astronomical space instrumentation. We particularly welcome papers in the general fields of high-energy astrophysics, astrophysical and astrochemical studies of the interstellar medium including star formation, planetary astrophysics, the formation and evolution of galaxies and the evolution of large scale structure in the Universe. Papers in mathematical physics or in general relativity which do not establish clear astrophysical applications will no longer be considered.The journal also publishes topically selected special issues in research fields of particular scientific interest. These consist of both invited reviews and original research papers. All papers published in the journal are subject to thorough and strict peer-reviewing.
Open Science, an independent publisher committed to ensuring peer-reviewed research, is Open Access – it provides immediate open access to its content on the principle of making research freely available to the public and supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
The Benefits of Open Access
Open Access has four broad benefits for science and the general public.
First, authors are assured that their work is disseminated to the widest possible audience, given that there are no barriers to access their work. This is accentuated by the authors being free to reproduce and distribute their work, for example by placing it on their institution's website. It has been suggested that free online articles are more highly cited because of their easier availability.
Second, the information available to researchers will not be limited by their library's budget, and the widespread availability of articles will enhance literature searching and facilitate meta-analyses.
Third, the results of publicly funded research will be accessible to all taxpayers and not just those with access to a library with a subscription. As such, Open Access could help to increase public interest in, and support of, research.
Fourth, a country's economy will not influence its scientists' ability to access articles because resource-poor countries (and institutions) will be able to read the same material as wealthier ones (although creating access to the internet is another matter.
From Jun. 1, 2017 to Sept. 30, 2017, authors can publish papers for free in the journal.

By providing a forum for Open Access, APCs will enable Open Science to serve the scientific and technological community. We believe this change will benefit and aid scientific research, and we hope you will support this progress by submitting your next article to an Open Access journal.
APC = Article Processing Charge.
