Based at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the Astronomical Journal (AJ) publishes original astronomical research, with "an emphasis on significant scientific results derived from observations, including descriptions of data capture, surveys, analysis techniques, and astronomical interpretation." The publication was founded in 1849 in Cambridge, Massachusetts and since that time it has become highly regarded. Visitors to the site can read past issues for free and they can use the Most Read, Most Cited, and Latest Articles tabs to dive right in. Recent pieces in the AJ have addressed supernovae, infrared scientific measurement devices, and the numerical integration of rotational motion. On the site, visitors can contact the editorial board, learn about submission guidelines, and peruse the AJ's ethics policy. It is a rather wonderful way to learn about the latest research in this field and is a resource that users will want to bookmark for future consideration.
