Canadian Aeronautics and Space Journal

The Canadian Aeronautics and Space Journal (CASJ) is the official journal of the Canadian Aeronautics and Space Institute (CASI). The CASJ is published three times per year by CASI and is devoted to the timely reporting of fundamental and applied research, new technologies and other developments in the aerospace sciences and related fields to the international community. The Editorial Board will consider publishing material ranging from advanced theoretical treatises to the dissemination of experimental results, as well as book reviews and abstracts of recent reports and publications of Canadian aerospace research organizations. All manuscripts require favourable peer review prior to publication.

In addition to the dissemination of the technical material published in the Canadian Aeronautics and Space Journal through its member, institutional and complementary subscriptions, the material published in the CASJ is also represented in the AIAA Aerospace and High Technology database, the Cambridge Scientific Abstracts Mechanical Engineering and Transportation Abstracts database, the Cambridge Scientific Abstracts Civil Engineering Abstracts, the Engineering Information Inc. Compendex and the National Research Council – CISTI Source.

For all manuscript submissions and reviews, please visit the CASJ Manuscript Central website.

Publication Charges

The cost of producing the Journal is offset partially by a publication fee paid by the lead author of $125 CDN per page. The author will be invoiced after the paper has been accepted but prior to it being published. Any over-payments or under-payments will be handled accordingly. Upon payment and publication of the article, the lead author will receive a hard copy of the Journal issue in which the manuscript appears and a PDF file of the final, formatted, manuscript.  Additional copies of the Journal may be purchased by prior arrangement with CASI.
