Research in Astronomy and Astrophysics (RAA)

Resarch in Astronomy and Astrophysics (RAA) publishes research in the rapidly growing area of astronomy and astrophysics.  RAA has a worldwide audience. It accepts original submissions from all over the world and is internationally published and distributed by IOP.

RAA has moved our online peer review system to the ScholarOne (S1) system. Please re-register and submit your new submission to our new system, however current submissions will still stay in the OJS system until their review process is finished. We will also keep the OJS system as our publishing system.
