Submit articles to


Planetarian, the quarterly journal of the International Planetarium Society, accepts a wide range of articles dealing with any of the diverse topics that are of interest to planetarians. We especially are looking for submissions for "How We Do It" (tips and tricks to make your work life easier), and "Under One Dome," which showcases different planetariums around the globe.

For an idea of the types of articles, browse back issues in Planetarian Archives, and check the Guidelines for Contributors.

We also welcome articles on best practices. Educational research papers also are sought, and will be professionally reviewed if so requested by the author.
