Publications of the Astronomical Society of Australia move to Cambridge 

Cambridge University Press has announced that it will become the new home of PASA (Publications of the Astronomical Society of Australia) from January 2013. PASA publishes new and significant research in astronomy and astrophysics. PASA covers a wide range of topics within astronomy, including multi-wavelength observations, theoretical modelling, computational astronomy and visualisation. PASA also maintains its heritage of publishing results on southern hemisphere astronomy and on astronomy with Australian facilities.

An official publication of the Astronomical Society of Australia, PASA publishes research papers, review papers and special series on topical issues, making use of expert international reviewers and an experienced Editorial Board. As an online-only journal, PASA publishes article by article, ensuring rapid publication on Cambridge's cutting-edge publishing platform, Cambridge Journals Online ( journals.cambridge.org/pas). This platform includes increased usability, added functionality and many new features to enhance and optimize article discovery and usage. 

" Australia is a world-leader in astronomy, and in Cambridge University Press we have found a partner with a comparable reputation in scientific publication. Cambridge has a long and distinguished history in astronomical publishing, but PASA now adds an important new dimension to Cambridge's capability in this area. The Astronomical Society of Australia is excited to be partnering with Cambridge, and looks forward to together developing new ways of sharing ideas and of promoting the latest astrophysical research from around the world." said Professor Bryan Gaensler, Chair of the PASA Editorial Board.

" PASA is indeed a welcome addition to Cambridge's world class list of astronomy publications and we look forward to working with a society producing internationally acclaimed research and bringing their publication to the widest possible readership." said Simon Ross, Managing Director, Cambridge Journals.
