The Planetary Science and Astrobiology Decadal Survey 2023-2032 assesses key scientific questions in planetary science and astrobiology, identifies priority medium- and large-class missions and other initiatives, and presents a comprehensive research strategy for the 2023-2032 timeframe. Community input in these areas and related activities — including, theory, computing, technology development, laboratory studies, planetary defense, and human exploration activities — was solicited, primarily in the form of whitepapers submitted to the Survey committees. This issue of the Bulletin of the AAS contains these whitepapers, excepting a small subset where the authors opted out of publication.
Work in progress: whitepapers are available provisionally for metadata proofing as described below. Once metadata are finalized and the whitepapers are ingested into ADS, we will provide a link here recommending that people use ADS to explore these documents, since it provides a far superior search-and-discovery user experience.
Before we assign DOIs to the whitepapers and upload their information to scholarly publishing indexes like NASA ADS, we invite authors to review “proof” versions of their submissions. Because the final published documents must represent what was actually reviewed by the Decadal Survey committees, we can only accept critical updates to the whitepaper metadata, such as missing, incorrect, or mis-ordered author names. Different groups chose whether to include “endorsers” or “co-signers” on their author lists or not, and the BAAS metadata reflect the choice that was made at submission time.
To submit a correction:
Download a personal copy of this spreadsheet.
Fill it out with your corrected metadata.
Email it with a copy of your whitepaper updated to match the corrected metadata to email@example.com. Please do not make any other changes to the whitepaper content.
The deadline for corrections is April 26th.
