About the RAS Journals

The RAS publishes results of original research in its major journals, Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society (MNRAS) and Geophysical Journal International (GJI). Astronomy & Geophysics (A&G) is the Society's full-colour news and reviews magazine, distributed to all Fellows.

The journals adhere to an Editorial Code of Practice, which all authors, reviewers, and editors must abide by. The code of practice and other editorial policy documents can be found in the Editorial Policies section.

The Society's journals are each overseen by an Editorial Board, which reports to the Society's Publications Management Committee (PMC). The PMC is made up of representatives of the RAS and its publisher(s), and provides overall strategic and commercial direction, reporting to the RAS Council. For more information, see the About the RAS section.

Access to electronic editions of all the RAS journals is free to Fellows of the society. Heavily discounted subscription rates are offered to Fellows for the printed editions of MNRAS and GJI, on the understanding that journals are strictly for personal use.
