These issues intend to document how professional scientists, educational outreach professionals, community scientists, teachers, students, amateur astronomers, artists, park rangers, other professionals, and individuals of all ages provide eclipse-related outreach, science, viewing experiences, demonstrations and observations, community science experiments, and other related experiences.
The first issue, coming February 2024, will cover the 2023 annular eclipse and provide lessons learned for the 2024 eclipse. Subsequent issues, starting in July and beyond in 2024, will collect articles from both the 2023 and 2024 eclipses, completing documentation of the science, outreach, experiences, and other eclipse outcomes from across the US.
All included papers will be edited, permanently archived, and will receive a DOI. All articles will be searchable on ADS and the Library of Congress. We welcome multimedia submissions including videos, image files, and audio files. Articles may be peer reviewed (double blind) upon request.
Articles submitted by December 8, 2023 will be eligible to be included in the first issue to be published in February 2024. All articles that will have requested peer review must complete that process prior to submitting to this site. Please reach out to Sanlyn Buxner ([email protected]) for more information about peer review.
