fusionSpan is proud to be AAS’s selected partner in the redesign of their Journals website. The site launched November 1 and highlights resources for authors and readers in an attractive, modern design.


Website Highlights

A new global navigation allows customers to easily navigate between all the AAS sites. The site has new search functionality and intuitive navigation to make it easy for customers to find exactly what they want.

A News slider on the homepage will allow AAS to provide news and updates in a visually appealing way to their customers and a Twitter feed and AAS Nova feed allow for dynamic content that will keep customers engaged. Powered by WordPress, the new website is also easier for staff to manage and update.

About AAS and Journals

Its membership of about 7,000 individuals also includes physicists, mathematicians, geologists, engineers, and others whose research and educational interests lie within the broad spectrum of subjects comprising contemporary astronomy. The mission of the AAS is to enhance and share humanity’s scientific understanding of the universe.

The AAS owns and operates its flagship journals, The Astronomical Journal, The Astrophysical Journal, The Astrophysical Journal Letters, and The Astrophysical Journal Supplements through its Board of Trustees, Publications Committee, and Executive Office for the benefit of the AAS community.
