The Astronomical Journal

Founded in 1894 by Benjamin Apthorp Gould, The Astronomical Journal is one of the world's finest journals in the field. The expanded coverage of quasars, supernova remnants, and studies of the interstellar medium complement the more traditional areas of astronomy, including galactic structure and dynamics, astrometry, variable and binary stars, solar system studies, and cosmology. With an emphasis on observational papers and a generally short publication time, the Journal attracts many seminal papers, and is an indispensable journal for any serious astronomer in the 1990s.

Frequency: monthly; two volumes/year. Volume 115 begins January 1998. ISSN: 0004-6256. 500 pages/issue.
