Astronomy and Astrophysics Abstracts (access)
Astronomy and Astrophysics Abstracts (AAA) provides access to the published literature in all aspects of astronomy, astrophysics, and their neighbouring fields. AAA were published from 1969 until 2000. The older literature (from 1899 to 1968) is recorded in the forerunner of AAA, the bibliography 'Astronomischer Jahresbericht'. Astronomy and Astrophysics Abstracts was designed to assist engineers, scientists and others to:
- locate relevant journal articles, conference papers and other documents in response to specific queries
1969 to 2000, for earlier periods consult Astronomischer Jahresbericht (1899-1968),

How to search
To get the best results, please read through the list of hints before you start your search.
|Authors||If you know the name of the author, the easiest way to search for his papers is to use the author index.|
|Truncation||By default, substrings are matched, so that, e.g. searching for "hhorn" will yield records with Eichhorn as well as Buchhorn in them. Thus, there usually is no need for wildcards. If you enable "match whole words only", please note that an author's surname and his/her initials are one word; thus, to find an author with "match whole words only", you have to give the initials.|
