The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) has worked with ScienceOpen to create a featured collection comprising a wide array of aerospace-related research from four different AIAA journals. As the world’s largest technical society dedicated to the global aerospace profession, the addition of material from AIAA greatly enriches the contents and context of ScienceOpen’s discovery platform.
The AIAA Space collection will contain current issues and content dating back three to five years of the four AIAA journals listed and briefly described here:
- AIAA Journal (AIAAJ)—The flagship journal of AIAA, discloses new theoretical developments and experimental results on topics such as aeroacoustics, aerodynamics, combustion, fundamentals of propulsion, fluid mechanics and reacting flows, the aerospace environment, lasers and plasmas, research instrumentation and facilities, structural mechanics and materials, and thermomechanics and thermochemistry.
- Journal of Aerospace Information Systems (JAIS)—Addresses advances in aerospace computing and communication systems with topics including software engineering, system verification and validation, big data, aerospace systems knowledge management, human–automation interaction, autonomous systems, systems engineering principles, and safety and mission assurance.
- Journal of Propulsion and Power (JPP)—Contributes to advancements in airbreathing, electric, and advanced propulsion, solid and liquid rockets, fuels and propellants, power generation and conversion for aerospace vehicles, and the application of aerospace science and technology to terrestrial energy devices and systems, spanning the range from research through development to applications.
- Journal of Spacecraft and Rockets (JSR)—Covers advancements in spacecraft and tactical and strategic missile systems, including subsystem design and application, mission design and analysis, materials and structures, developments in space sciences, space processing and manufacturing, space operations, and applications of space technologies to other fields.
These journals comprise broad and specialized research pertaining to space science and technology research which makes the AIAA Space collection on ScienceOpen a comprehensive and extensive source of space travel science and technology research. We are happy that this partnership will help further and increase the reach and impact of AIAA’s novel research through the promotion of the collection to ScienceOpen’s diverse base of users and contribute to AIAA’s mission of helping aerospace professionals and their organizations succeed.
“This collaboration marks an exciting beginning in our relationship with AIAA, and we look forward to producing more collections focused on space-related research in the future,” said Stephanie Dawson, CEO of ScienceOpen.
