The American Astronomical Society (AAS) and IOP Publishing (IOP) have created a partnership to further enhance the AAS mission: “to share humanity’s scientific knowledge of the universe.”
Combining the award-winning IOP book program with the vast expertise of the AAS community will allow specific subject areas to be explored in depth by community experts in the most fascinating areas of astronomy and astrophysics.
During the first phase of our partnership, all books will be approved and endorsed by the AAS Expert Advisory Board and be published within the IOP Expanding Physics™ collection.
The AAS-IOP book collection will be developed over the next couple of years to make a complete collection focusing on astronomy, astrophysics, instrumentation, methods and technologies, celestial mechanics, astrometry, solar astronomy, planetary systems, stars, the galaxy, cosmology and related subject areas.
By creating born digital ebooks, authors are able to fully exploit ever-evolving digital publishing capabilities. Multimedia and advanced features become an integral part of the ebook, offering an enhanced reading and research experience.
If you are interested in being part of this unique collection we would like to hear from you. We welcome new book proposals in all branches of astronomy and are actively commissioning in these areas.
In the first instance, please complete our proposal form or e-mail a summary of your idea, detailing the topic, concept, competition and potential audience to firstname.lastname@example.org, including a current biography and contact details.
The AAS, established 1899, is the major organization of professional astronomers in North America. The membership (~7,000) also includes physicists, mathematicians, geologists, engineers and others whose research interests lie within the broad spectrum of subjects now comprising contemporary astronomy. The mission of the American Astronomical Society is to enhance and share humanity's scientific understanding of the universe.
