Astrophysics is the branch of science that deals with the physics of the universe, as well as the physical properties (luminosity, density, temperature, and chemical composition) of celestial objects like stars, galaxies, and also the interstellar space, and their interactions.
Astroparticle physics, also known as particle astrophysics, is a branch of natural philosophy that studies elementary particles of astronomical origin and their relation to Astrophysics, Cosmic ray physics, astronomy, Cosmology and Particle physics. It is quite a new field arising at the interaction of particle physics, astronomy, astrophysics, detector physics, relativity, solid state physics, and cosmology. Partly driven by the invention of neutrino oscillation, the field has undergone fast development, both in theory and experiments. The field of astroparticle physics has developed from the field of Optical physics. The detector technology has advanced the field of astrophysics which involved topics, like mechanics, electrodynamics, thermodynamics, plasma physics, nuclear physics, relativity, and particle physics. Particle physicists found astrophysics necessary due to difficulty in producing particles with comparable energy to those found in space.
The Impact Factor, often abbreviated IF, is a measure reflecting the average number of citations to recent articles published in science and social science journals. IF is calculated by dividing the number of citations in the Journal Citation Reports year by the total number of articles published in the two previous years. High impact factor for a particular journal implies good number of citations and quality of work.
Journal of Astrophysics and aerospace Technology (JAAT) is an Open Access journal includes a wide range of fields in its discipline. Scholarly open access journal aims to publish most complete and reliable source of information on the discoveries and current developments in the mode of original articles, review articles, case reports, short communications, etc.
