  This journal is published under the auspices of the Division of Physics and Astronomy of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine and has its editorial seat at the Main Astronomical Observatory in Kiev. It is concerned with the physical, integral properties of celestial bodies, kinematic astronomy and its base, astrometry. The Observatory has a long tradition of producing high-quality astronomic data at a prolific rate and is the home base of scholars who have made, and continue to make, significant contributions to theoretical questions on the kinematics and physics of celestial bodies. The journal publishes original and review papers on the following topics:
  • Positional and theoretical astronomy
  • Earth's rotation and geodynamics
  • Dynamics and physics of bodies of the Solar System
  • Solar physics
  • Physics of stars and the interstellar medium
  • Structure and dynamics of the Galaxy
  • Extragalactic astronomy
  • Atmospheric optics and astronomical climate
  • Instruments and devices
  • Astronomical catalogs and databases
  • Mathematical processing of astronomical information
      In recent years, the journal has placed an emphasis on structure and dynamics of the Galaxy, as well as on extragalactic astronomy.
      This journal is as much devoted to astronomical data, methods and theoretical foundations for gathering these, as to constructing dynamic and physical models for their interpretation. No astronomical library will be complete without it.
