Publishing Astronomy and Astrophysics: Article Numbering, Electronic First

Conference paper
Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Proceedings book series (ASSSP, volume 1)


Quick dissemination of validated scientific results is an important aspect of academic publishing. Over the years, the electronic editions of journals have become the primary vehicle for achieving that objective. To streamline the production of the journal Astronomy and Astrophysics, it has appeared useful to change from the classical “page-numbering system” to a more flexible “article-numbering system”. In this paper, we recount the setting up of the “page-numbering system” in the publishing process of A&A. We also provide a quick review of publishing trends for the journal.
