Historical NoteReturn to Top

The American Astronomical Society was officially established in 1899 to organize individuals involved in the discipline and profession of astronomy. The Society sponsors The Astronomical Journal, while the AJ is published by The University of Chicago Press. The editorial board consists of scholars from various academic institutions, members of the AAS, and representatives of the University of Chicago Press. The Astronomical Journal was founded in 1849 by B.A. Gould and has incorporated coverage of quasars, galaxies, supernova remnants, and studies of the interstellar medium to complement the more traditional areas of astronomy, including galactic structure and dynamics, astrometry, variable and binary stars, solar system studies, and cosmology.
