The RAS publishes results of original research in its major journals, Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society (MNRAS) and Geophysical Journal international (GJI). Astronomy & Geophysics (A&G) is the Society's full-colour news and reviews journal, distributed to all Fellows.
Access to electronic editions of all these journals is free to Fellows of the society. Heavily discounted subscription rates are offered to Fellows for the printed editions of MNRAS and GJI, on the understanding that journals are strictly for personal use.
The journals adhere to an Editorial Code of Practice and the research journals (and major articles in A&G) are rigorously peer reviewed by the RAS. The journals are published on behalf of the Society by Oxford University Press (OUP), and are governed by the RAS publications management structure and the RAS publishing policy. The RAS also has a policy on open access publishing and article repositories, and allows authors to make use of both of these for articles published in its research journals.
Astronomy & Geophysics
Astronomy & Geophysics (A&G) is the RAS's bimonthly house journal, distributed to all Fellows of the society. It publishes articles, news and reviews on topics in astronomy, astrophysics, cosmology, planetary science, solar-terrestrial physics, global and regional geophysics, and the history of these subjects. A&G also publishes discussions of topical items, reports of meetings, scientific news reports, and acts as a forum for discussion of all matters of interest to professional astronomers and geophysicists.
Geophysical Journal International
Geophysical Journal international (GJI) is the primary solid-earth geophysics journal based in Europe, publishing the results of research on the earth's internal structure, physical properties, evolution and processes covering all aspects of theoretical, computational and observational geophysics.
Subjects covered include:
Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society
Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society (MNRAS) is one of the world's leading astronomy journals. It publishes the results of original research in positional and dynamical astronomy, astrophysics, radio astronomy, cosmology, space science and the design of astronomical instruments. There is also an online Letters section for the rapid publication of short but timely articles in those subjects.
