IAU Publications comprise primarily the Information Bulletin and the Proceedings of the IAU General Assemblies and other scientific meetings sponsored by the IAU. The series of IAU Symposia, the IAU Transactions (Vol. A and B), and the Highlights of Astronomy are published by the IAU Publisher (see details below). IAU members can buy these books from the publisher at considerably reduced prices by referring to their membership (give name and address as listed in the IAU Membership Directory). Proceedings of IAU Colloquia as decided by the Scientific Organising Committee of each meeting; they are sold through the normal distribution channels for scientific books.
Updated information on the preparation of IAU publications and the submission of contributions to such volumes is maintained at the IAU Publisher's web site on the page Invitation to Publish.
Instructions and style files for the preparation of contributions can be viewed and downloaded here, both for the Symposia and Highlights of Astronomy and for the Transactions (both Vol. A and B).
The Copyright to all IAU publications belongs to the IAU. All contributors to volumes published in the IAU series (Symposia, Highlights of Astronomy, Transactions A and B) must therefore fill out and sign a Consent to Publish & Transfer of Copyright form and submit it to the Editor of the volume in which their contribution will appear. This form is provided here; paper copies are also available from the IAU Secretariat or the IAU Publisher (address at the bottom of this page).
Lists and other information on these publications are accessible below as follows:
IAU Transactions Vol. B contain complete alphabetical lists of the IAU members, with full address information. These lists are reprinted from the full volumes and available separately (reference to the printed version here). An updated On-Line Membership Directory is maintained at this Web site.
We wish to maintain a complete collection of books published under the auspices of the IAU at the Secretariat. This has been achieved for all books in the regular series, except for the Colloquia. A List of Missing Colloquium Proceedings has been prepared; we are grateful to any readers who might be able and willing to donate older volumes and thus help to complete our collection.
In addition to the regular series mentioned above, special publications appear from time to time as circumstances arise. Morever, a number of the scientific bodies of the IAU issue publications on a more regular basis. These are listed below.
