Published quarterly since 1954 by the American Astronautical Society, The Journal of the Astronautical Sciences is an archival publication devoted to the sciences and technology of astronautics. Articles are published which present significant new results, important insights, or state of the art surveys in all areas of astrodynamics, celestial mechanics, atmospheric flight mechanics, navigation and guidance, and space related sciences. Authors are encouraged to submit papers on attitude dynamics, orbit determination, trajectory optimization, space mission analysis, numerical methods, maneuvering flight vehicles, dynamics and control of large flexible space structures, and space sciences related to new astronautical systems and their applications.
The Journal is currently provided online at no charge to AAS members. Online access to the Journal is available under an agreement with Springer Science + Business Media. Annual institutional subscription rate (4 issues) is $99.00. Back issues can be ordered based on availability. To subscribe contact Springer at 1-800-777-4643.

Impact Factor, a measure of journal quality that is published annually by Clarivate Analytics, equals the number of journal article citations in year N to journal articles published during the prior two years (N-1, N-2) divided by the number of articles published in years N-1 and N-2. The Five-year impact factor adds three prior years to the two years noted above. The 2019 Journal Impact Factor of 2.775 is about 86 percentile relative to journals in the same subject category.
