Astronomy - Books and Journals

At the universities, astronomy became a field of study right around 1800. Since then, not only scientists but also a broad public have been following the latest findings on the cosmos, its planets, and stars with great interest. Astronomy and its sub-disciplines at Springer include astrophysics, astrobiology, extraterrestrial physics, cosmology and space science. Our publications include reference works, textbooks, monographs, proceedings, popular science, and open access content. Well-known titles in the field of astronomy are Living Reviews in Relativity, The Astronomy and Astrophysics Review, and the Encyclopedia of Astrobiology. Society partners include Max Planck Society, The International Society on General Relativity and Gravitation.
