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 -
