A Research Newsletter Dedicated to the BL Lac and Blazar Phenomena

Editor: Travis A. Rector




"The Blazar Times" is an electronic newsletter dedicated to research on the BL Lac and blazar phenomena, observationally as well as theoretically. The primary goal of the newsletter is to give easy and rapid access to the latest results in blazar research. Over 300 astronomers are subscribed.

The format of the newsletter has recently changed. Instead of a monthly newsletter, contributions will be sent as a "rapid release" service to subscribers within 1-2 working days after receipt. The Blazar Times is therefore a quick and easy way to notify over 300 astronomers interested in blazar research of your recent paper. Instructions on how to contribute are below.


With the new rapid release service there will not be a monthly issue. However, past issues of The Blazar Times may be read here.


To subscribe please send your name and email address to blazar@uaa.alaska.edu. Also, if you know of others who might be interested please ask them to subscribe! To ensure that your privacy is respected, the subscriber email list will not under any circumstances be released to others. You may unsubscribe at any time with an email to the above address.


To keep the service timely, only abstracts from papers accepted but not yet published in refereed journals are accepted. Recent Ph.D. dissertation abstracts (roughly a page in length) are also accepted. Please use the abstract and Ph.D. dissertation LaTeX templates presented here; only abstracts in template form can be accepted. Conference and job announcements no more than one page in length are also accepted, preferably in LaTeX format. Please send completed templates and other LaTeX files to blazar@uaa.alaska.edu; but before submitting please read the abstract guidelines!
