It’s a New Year and therefore a new Volume of the Open Journal of Astrophysics and it’s time to announce the first publication in it! This one is the 1st paper in Volume 5 (2022) and the 49th in all.

The latest publication is entitled Validating Synthetic Galaxy Catalogs for Dark Energy Science in the LSST Era and is written by Eve Kovacs of Argonne National Laboratory and 38 others on behalf of the LSST Dark Energy Science Collaboration.

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

There is a little bit of a backlog in OJAp Towers owing to the Christmas break as some authors have been on leave and not doing their revisions, so I’d anticipate a few more papers in the next few weeks.

Time to announce another publication in the Open Journal of Astrophysics. This one is the 13th paper in Volume 4 (2021) and the 44th in all.

The latest publication is entitled  The LSST-DESC 3x2pt Tomography Optimization Challengeand is in the folder marked Instrumentation and Methods for Astrophysics, and is especially relevant for cosmology. The paper is led by Joe Zuntz of the University of Edinburgh, and there are 27 authors altogether, scattered across the globe, representing the LSST Dark Energy Science Collaboration.

Time to announce another publication in the Open Journal of Astrophysics. This one was published yesterday, actually, but I didn’t get time to post about it until just now. It is the second paper in Volume 4 (2021).

The latest publication is entitled Characterizing the Sample Selection for Supernova Cosmology and is written by Alex G. Kim on behalf of the LSST Dark Energy Science Collaboration.  It’s nice to be getting papers from large collaborations like this!
