In the abstract update the first paragraph of text to this "The American Astronomical Society (AAS) has developed a markup package to assist authors in preparing manuscripts intended for submission to all the AAS-affiliated journals. The journals are the Astrophysical Journal (ApJ), the Astronomical Journal (AJ), ApJ Supplements (ApJS), Letters (ApJL), and Research Notes (RN). The latest LaTeX classfile is AASTeX v6.2 and it can be obtained here. The sample62.tex template uses this classfile to illustrate some of the newer features for submissions to the main Journals. RN authors can used the rnaas.tex template for the shorter Research Notes submissions. The new “RNAAS” style option should be used to suppress the abstract for a Research Note. Authors should consult the extensive guide for all the features in AASTeX v6.2.
Once your manuscript is complete, simply use the "Submit to Journal" option in the Overleaf editor to submit your files directly to the journal for processing. Note that you will still need to log on to the submission site to supply additional meta-data. The editorial office will contact you when your submission has been processed and is ready for further input.
The American Astronomical Society (AAS) has developed a markup package to assist authors in preparing manuscripts intended for submission to AAS-affiliated journals. This version of the template provides AASTeX v6.0, which has since been superseded by the updated AASTeX v6.1. Authors writing new manuscripts should ideally use AASTeX v6.1.
Once your manuscript is complete, simply use the "Submit to Journal" option in the Overleaf editor to submit your files directly to the journal for processing.
This example manuscript is intended to serve as a tutorial and template for authors to use when writing their own AAS Journal articles. The manuscript includes a history of
aastex and documents the new features in the previous version, 6.0, as well as the new features in version 6.1. This manuscript includes many figure and table examples to illustrate these new features. Information on features not explicitly mentioned in the article can be viewed in the manuscript comments or more extensive online documentation. Authors are welcome replace the text, tables, figures, and bibliography with their own and submit the resulting manuscript to the AAS Journals peer review system. The first lesson in the tutorial is to remind authors that the AAS Journals, the Astrophysical Journal (ApJ), the Astrophysical Journal Letters (ApJL), and Astronomical Journal (AJ), all have a 250 word limit for the abstract. If you exceed this length the Editorial office will ask you to shorten it.
AASTeX is a set of macros for the preparation of electronic manuscripts for submission to American Astronomical Society (AAS) journals, including the Astrophysical Journal, the Astrophysical Journal Letters, and The Astronomical Journal.
