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.
