The Journal of the American Association of Variable Star Observers (JAAVSO) has announced the appointment of Prof. Nancy Morrison (University of Toledo) as the new Editor-in-Chief, effective October 1, 2019. Prof. Morrison succeeds Prof. John Percy (University of Toronto) who has led the journal for the past ten years.
Prof. Morrison brings to the JAAVSO more than her 52-year affair with variable stars, active involvement with the astronomical community, and tenure with the American Astronomical Society Board of Trustees.
JAAVSO is a refereed research publication available to the entire community of variable star researchers, promoting the AAVSO’s overall mission—to enable anyone, anywhere, to participate in scientific discovery through variable star astronomy.
The dedication of many ‘AAVSO kindred spirits’ supplies numerous discoveries to JAAVSO readers, and helps build mutually beneficial scientific relationships between amateur and professional astronomers. To be considered for publication in the JAAVSO, a submitted article must simply be original research conducted largely by the author(s) on a variable star astronomy subject. Topics include studies of variable objects, data analyses, and precise methods of observing techniques.
