  • IJASS is being published by the Korean Society for Aeronautical and Space Sciences (KSAS), which is the only major academic society of Korea in aerospace engineering and science 
  • Being the only SCI/E-listed journal of Korea for aerospace discipline, IJASS provides unique opportunities for the readers to find the status and trend of Korean aerospace research activities

Please note, we are currently updating the 2018 Journal Metrics.

Founded in 2010, the International Journal of Aeronautical and Space Sciences (IJASS) has represented KSAS in introducing the academic excellence of Korean aerospace scientists and engineers to the world. Under the title of KSAS International Journal, it had been published twice a year before the publication frequency was increased to four times a year in 2010. To encourage the participation of international colleagues, its name was also changed to IJASS in 2009. Thanks to the strong support of the Korean Federation of Science and Technology Societies, the production quality has been significantly improved since 2011. Furthermore, to modernize the review system and production process, KSAS entered into a contract with Springer to co-publish IJASS, starting from Vol. 19 (1), 2018. IJASS has been listed on Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE) since Vol .13 (1), 2012.  

IJASS invites high quality papers from international colleagues in all technical areas of aerospace engineering. Colleagues who are willing to serve as a member of the IJASS Editorial Board are encouraged to write to the Editor-in-Chief or the Technical Editor responsible for the field of interest.

All papers published on the back issues from 2010 to 2017 can be freely accessed and downloaded at - http://ijass.org/

    Aims and Scope


    The International Journal of Aeronautical and Space Sciences (IJASS) encourages submission of papers addressing all aspects of aerospace science and technology, which include acoustics, aerodynamics and fluid mechanics, aerospace telecommunications, airworthiness and maintenance, avionics, combustion and propulsion, flight dynamics, guidance and control, flight simulation and operations, low carbon manufacturing, nano application, plasma and lasers, instrumentation and facilities, space exploration, structural dynamics and aeroelasticity, structures and materials, and thermomechanics and reacting flows. The journal also addresses the ground and flight tests of aerospace systems including aircraft, airship, helicopter, guided missiles, satellites, rockets, and UAV. The Korean Society for Aeronautical Space Sciences (KSAS), the largest and the most prestigious society for aerospace engineers and scientists in Korea, will do its best to keep the highest standards of IJASS by soliciting high quality research papers. As of 2012, IJASS is indexed by SCI Expanded (SCIE), SCOPUS and KCI.
