Hermograph Periodicals
The Classroom Astronomer is a quarterly PDF publication designed as a practitioner journal for classroom teachers of astronomy. While centered at the high school level, it also provides tips, techniques and informative how-to articles for teachers of grades K-8 and undergraduate college "Astro 101" courses. Our mission is to increase the amount of astronomy in the school systems and improve the skills of teachers.

Back issues, single issues and annual subscriptions are available.

Journal and Review of Astronomy Education and Outreach (JRAEO) is a new (Spring 2014), three times per year, scholarly online journal on astronomy education and it is accepting submissions now.  JRAEO intends to publish peer review research articles (Section A) and non-peer (Section B) articles that are news of the field, pertinent stories, research notes and commentary.  JRAEO will be a subscription-based publication following the publishing of Issue 1 this spring.

Issue 1 was published online May 20, 2014.  Subscriptions, JRAEO, and bundles with The Classroom Astronomer, are available now.
