NEW REFEREED JOURNAL OF ASTRONOMY AND EARTH SCIENCES EDUCATION INVITES MANUSCRIPTS

The editor and editorial board are pleased to announce the publication of a new on-line journal for research papers on space science and earth science education. Entitled The Journal of Astronomy and Earth Sciences Education (JAESE), the new peer-reviewed publication is open-access, meaning it is free to all readers. The first issue is already complete; see: http://www.jaese.org and papers are now being accepted for the second issue. The journal fills a void created when the American Astronomical Society stopped publishing its on-line journal, Astronomy Education Review, in 2013.

While the publication fees should not be a barrier for most authors, some people may have very limited budgets. For 2015, a fund has been established by donations to the Astronomical Society of the Pacific, the Wyoming Excellence in Higher Education Endowment, and the CAPER Center for Astronomy & Physics Education Research to subsidize publication costs for authors with demonstrated need. Details about how to apply are available from the Editor.

Detailed author guidelines are available at the journal website.

Questions may be directed to the editor, Dr. Tim Slater (University of Wyoming) at: JAESE@uwyo.edu
