Journal information

  1. General
    "Contributions of the Astronomical Observatory Skalnate Pleso" (CAOSP) is published by the Astronomical Institute of the Slovak Academy of Sciences (SAS). The journal publishes new results of astronomical and astrophysical research, preferentially covering the fields of Interplanetary Matter, Stellar Astrophysics and Solar Physics. We publish regular papers, expert comments and review contributions. All manuscripts are sent to referees. There are no page charges. Access to all the online published papers is open. Publishing of the journal is in part supported by the SAS.
  2. Rules
    Submission of a manuscript implies that it presents original research which has not been published before and is not being considered for publication elsewhere. Papers must be written in English. The papers submitted are subject of an anonymous referee process. To shorten the process, the corresponding author(s) may propose possible reviewers, including their affiliations and e-mail addresses.
  3. Free rapid on-line publication
    Usual time from receiving the manuscript to its acceptance is of 2-5 weeks, depending on how the editor-referee-author's communication is progressing. For both, authors and readers, our editorial process is free, fair and fast. Accepted manuscripts are assigned final numbers (year, volume, issue and pages) within a few days after the language and technical proof-sheets. In this way they are published on-line at the CAOSP website, with open access. When a particular issue is completed, all papers become available at the NASA-ADS portal, and the issue is printed. Authors are encouraged to disseminate their papers using the arXiv archive.
