Description
COSPAR is an interdisciplinary scientific organization concerned with the progress on an international scale of all kinds of fundamental research carried out with the use of space vehicles (balloons, rockets, satellites) and associated ground systems. Operating under the rules of ICSU, COSPAR ignores political considerations and acts mainly as a scientific forum for the exchange of knowledge in particular during its Scientific Assemblies and colloquia Over several decades the biennial Assemblies have become recognized as the premier forum for the presentation of the most important results in space research in all disciplines. The publications resulting from COSPAR Scientific Assemblies and other meetings organized by this Committee are of great value to the international space research community and are included in COSPAR's journal Advances in Space Research (ASR). The papers published in Advances in Space Research are fully refereed and edited by eminent scientists in the international space science community. Fields covered are: Space Studies of the Earth's Surface, Meteorology and Climate; Space Studies of the Earth-Moon System, Planets and Small Bodies of the Solar System; Space Studies of the Upper Atmospheres of the Earth and Planets, including Reference Atmospheres; Space Plasmas in the Solar System, including Planetary Magnetospheres; Research in Astrophysics from Space; Materials Sciences in Space; Life Sciences as Related to Space and Fundamental Physics in Space. Individual issues of Advances in Space Research, often thematic research works, are available for separate purchase.

Space Research Today (SRT), COSPAR's information bulletin, provides COSPAR Associates and subscribers to Advances in Space Research with special guest articles on current topics in space research by practitioners in the field, regular information on meetings, COSPAR and space research-related news, information on COSPAR committees and activities, on scientific activities of interest, including launch lists, profiles on key personnel and letters from the community. Space Research Today is issued three times each year, in April, August and December. The August issue in odd numbered years includes the Call for Papers for the Scientific Assembly of the following year. Thus, Space Research Today is a key tool in communication of information within the COSPAR community. Everyone is invited to contribute articles, letters, news or images of interest. These should be sent to the General Editor.
