New Publication at the Open Journal of Astrophysics

Posted in Open Access, The Universe and Stuff with tags , , , on August 10, 2021 by telescoper

Time to announce another publication in the Open Journal of Astrophysics. This one was actually published at the end of last month, but owing to the holiday season there was a delay in activating the DOI and registering the metadata  so I have delayed posting about it until just now. It is the sixth paper in Volume 4 (2021) and the 37th in all.

The latest publication is entitled Euclid: Forecasts for k-cut 3 × 2 point statistics. The first author is Peter L. Taylor of the Jet Propulsion Lab in Pasadena, USA and there are almost 100 authors altogether. This is definitely the paper with the longest author list we have published so far, and also the first paper we have published on behalf of the Euclid Consortium. I am a member of Euclid so I of course recused myself from the editorial process.

Here is a screen grab of the overlay which includes the abstract:

The Euclid Consortium has a strict protocol for papers it publishes which, together with the large number of authors, not to mention the pandemic, meant it took quite a long time to make the revisions suggested by referees. Still, it has turned out a very nice paper I think.  I am also very pleased that a major consortium such as Euclid has decided to publish in OJAp.

We have another bunch of papers in the pipeline – in fact one further has already been published – so watch this space for further developments!

I’ll end with a reminder to prospective authors that the OJA  now has the facility to include supplementary files (e.g. code or data sets) along with the papers we publish. If any existing authors (i.e. of papers we have already published) would like us to add supplementary files retrospectively then please contact us with a request!
