Instructions for Authors

Papers published in Astronomische Nachrichten / Astronomical Notes (AN) shall present the results of original research not previously published. Articles submitted to AN should meet these criteria and must not be under consideration for publication elsewhere. All papers are sent to referees. There are no page charges. Authors should be aware about the Transfer of Copyright of all published papers and the possibility of ordering additional reprints/pdfs using the proofs form. Papers must be written in English. While a polished literary style is not demanded of scientific papers, they should conform to the elementary rules of grammar, syntax, and punctuation.
The journal is published in an online only format. Each corresponding author will receive a PDF file for 50 printouts of his contribution free of charge. Reprints (at least 50 copies) or a PDF file for an unlimited number of printouts can be purchased. See general author guidelines for further details.
Preparation of Manuscripts
Only manuscripts written with the most recent version of the LaTeX2e style file can be accepted. The latter can be obtained by retrieving the following package: .

In case of major technical problems with the official LaTeX tamplate given above, it is still acceptable to prepare manuscripts with the old AN LaTeX macro.

Papers have to be accompanied by key words. These are published together with the paper and must be chosen from the current list of key words (up to five items).

The manuscript should be submitted electronically by sending a PDF or PS file including figures (preferably zipped or gzipped) to OR by uploading the file using the submission upload form.
