The journal is using Editorial Manager System for quality in review process. Editorial Manager is an online manuscript submission, review and managing systems. Review processing is performed by the editorial board members of JAO or outside experts; at least two independent reviewers approval followed by editor approval is required for acceptance of any citable manuscript. Authors may submit manuscripts and track their progress through the system, hopefully to publication. Reviewers can download manuscripts and submit their opinions to the editor. Editors can manage the whole submission/review/revise/publish process.


Astrobiology is the study of life in the universe. The search for life beyond the Earth requires an understanding of life, and the nature of the environments that support it, as well as planetary, planetary system and stellar processes. To provide this understanding, astrobiology combines the knowledge and techniques from many fields, including astronomy, biology, chemistry, geology, atmospheric science, oceanography and aeronautical engineering.

Astrophysics is a branch of space science that applies the laws of physics and chemistry to explain the birth, life and death of stars, planets, galaxies, nebulae and other objects in the universe. It has two sibling sciences, astronomy and cosmology, which has very minute difference.

Astronomy is the study of stars, galaxies, planets, moons, asteroids, comets and nebulae. The physics, chemistry, and evolution of such objects, and phenomena that originate outside the atmosphere of Earth. It also explains supernovae explosions, gamma ray bursts, and cosmic microwave background radiation.

Planetary Science

Planetary science is a scientific term used to study the planets, moons, and planetary systems with respective to the Solar System and the processes that involves their formation. It involves understanding how planetary systems formed, how these systems work and how all their components interact. It is a cross-discipline field including aspects of astronomy, atmospheric science, geology, space physics, biology and chemistry.

Extraterrestrial Life

Extraterrestrial life is the life that may exist or may have existed in the universe outside of Earth. The search for extraterrestrial life encompasses many fundamental scientific questions. What are the basic requirements for life. Could life have arisen elsewhere in the solar system. Are there other planets like Earth. How likely is the evolution of intelligent life.

Cosmochemistry is the study of the chemical composition of matter in the universe and the processes that led to those compositions. This is done primarily through the study of the chemical composition of meteorites and other physical samples. Given that the asteroid parent bodies of meteorites were some of the first solid material to condense from the early solar nebula, cosmochemists are generally, but not exclusively, concerned with the objects contained within the solar system.

Asteroids and Life

A small rocky body orbiting the sun. Large numbers of these, ranging enormously in size, are found between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter, though some have more eccentric orbits.

Exobiology is the baranch of biology that specializes in the search for and study of life elsewhere in the universe. Exobilogists try to apply their ideas of how life on Earth originated to discover and study life on other palnets. Exobiologists try to discover if the chemical and physical factors that controlled the origin of life on Earth are the same on other planets.

Astronomy Equipment

Astronomy is one of the oldest sciences.Astronomers use various types of equipment based on the portion of the E-M Band to be observed. Telescopes and radio dishes are used from the surface of the Earth to study visible light, near infrared light, and radio waves.

Habitable Zone

A habitable zone (HZ) in astronomy is a region of space where conditions are best for life to form as on Earth. Planets in these areas are the most likely to have extraterrestrial life. The habitable zone may also be called the "life zone", "comfort zone", "green belt".

The New Horizons Pluto Mission

In a research paper appearing in the current issue of this journal, Max Wallis and Chandra Wickramasinghe have raised the issue of life in the Kuiper belt objects. Hitherto hazy images of Pluto have come into much sharper focus following the New Horizon Spacecraft’s closest approach to this dwarf planet last month. Far from being a dead hard frozen world, Pluto has revealed the most astonishing set of features – exceptionally low levels of cratering, high mountains and smooth plains, and a network of surface cracks. The existence of pigments (colours), organic molecules including methane all point to subsurface biology, according to the authors. Bodies of waters tens of kilometres below the frozen surface could be maintained warm and liquid due to radiogenic heat sources augmented by the metabolic heat of microbial activity. Wickramasinghe told the journal “There is every indication that the evolution of Pluto’s crust, including episodes of mountain building, was largely controlled by biology. The authors conclude: “The New Horizons mission over-fulfils expectations in initiating astrobiological explorations of the new worlds of dwarf planets.”

This is to invite you on behalf of the Editorial Board for the Journal of Astrobiology & Outreach to submit a Manuscript on "The Mission to Pluto-New Horizons" for publication in the upcoming issue.

*2018 Journal Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2016 and 2017 with the number of times they are cited in 2018 based on Google Scholar Citation Index database. If 'X' is the total number of articles published in 2016 and 2017, and 'Y' is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2018 then, journal impact factor = Y/X
