Special Issue

The IBWS workshop offers the opportunity to publish your contribution to the dedicated Special Issue in Astronomical Notes/ Astronomische Nachrichten (AN) journal indexed by WoS, etc.

  • All papers are peer-reviewed.
  • Only contributions presented at the IBWS 2020 conference can be submitted to the Special Issue.
  • However, the presentation of the contribution does not mean its acceptance into the Special Issue.
  • Please indicate clearly in your paper what is novel and original material. (It should make the task of reviewers easier.)
  • Please take your time to proofread the manuscript before submission and get all co-authors to review your manuscript before submission.
