The Journal of Double Star Observations (JDSO) publishes articles on any and all aspects of astronomy involving double and binary stars. The JDSO is especially interested in observations made by amateur astronomers. Submitted articles announcing measurements, discoveries, or conclusions about double or binary stars may undergo a peer review. This means that a paper submitted by an amateur astronomer will be reviewed by other amateur astronomers doing similar work.
Not all articles will undergo a peer-review. Articles that are of more general interest but that have little new scientific content such as articles generally describing double stars, observing sessions, star parties, etc. will not be refereed.
Submitted manuscripts must be original, unpublished material and written in English. They should contain an abstract and a short description or biography (2 or 3 sentences)of the author(s).
Submissions should be made electronically via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or to email@example.com. Articles should be attached to the email in Microsoft Word, Word Perfect, Open Office, or text format. All images should be in jpg or fits format.
