Current edition



Contributions to mnassa can be divided into the following:

  • reader's letters;
  • ASSA news (Society-related material; news from Council; activities of members, etc.);
  • news notes (local and international news of interest to astronomers);
  • research papers (original research papers on all branches of astronomy and astrophysics; papers are sent to referees before publication);
  • general contributions (typically longer and more detailed than news notes, these contributions are less formal than research papers; these include historical articles, biographies, obituaries, travel accounts, observing reports, instrumentation development papers and progress reports on ongoing research);
  • reviews; and
  • the observer's page (accounts of the activities of the various observing sections within the Society).
  • There are no page charges, but it is important for papers to be concise.
