In the last few years from the beginning of COVID-19 pandemic to now a time, the scientific community all over the world is effected on academia and science, research has been just as severe as in other sectors throughout the world in all types of professional areas. Due to the needs for applying the pandemic constrains, as physical distancing and quarantine, laboratories around the world have wound down or restricted operations. These factors contribute strongly in unavoidably impacting space and astronomy.
Such changes have been added and appeared to scientists that forced them to reduce the fieldwork or surveys serve in present a new works to the field of physics and astronomy, so this leads some of the researchers contemplated leaving their scientific discipline due to a lack of resources, personnel and ability to continue experimental work or have been forced a decreasing amount of time to research. There is a fact that the "scientific research has changed the world" but now through this period and more than ever, "it needs to change itself".
The ongoing worldwide COVID-19 pandemic is affecting and having the most important or significant impact on the researches and industries of spaceflight, science, and professionals in physics and astronomy.
As some types of learning styles are enforced such as students out of school are turning to online remote learning, many institutions and research centers in the space group work community are taking up online efforts for science education, including astronomy craft projects and several virtual initiatives others in many parts of the world.
Although there are many challenges and obstacles in the field of scientific researches in physics and astronomy, there is a large efforts done by the publisher, editor in chief, editors, reviewers and authors of the Journal of Physics and Astronomy. These efforts yielded and led to improve the work in the journal to be with a strong reputation for publishing the best research in physics and astronomy. The journal was viewed as an attractive outlet in which to be published.
We will be happy to communicate with our authors in this period of restrictions associate with COVID-19 pandemic, to encourage them to submit their best manuscripts to our Journal. All of manuscripts submitted to the journal, are subjected to be reviewed at the editor-in-chief, senior editors, and associate editor's levels before being sent out to reviewers. The reviewing process was established and processed with highly experienced reviewers, this continuous hard work is go on and connected with the cooperation of the senior and associate editors, there are set of practices created in this field which encourages the delivery of quality reviews in a timely fashion in a good bases of scientific environment.
Thanks to all the editors and reviewers whose cooperation and hard work made this possible and easy to be seen.
The editorial board members of the journal would like also to extend their gratitude at this articulated stage to the authors/contributors, reviewers as well as all others who are either directly or indirectly involved in the publication at any time throughout this interval of time before and after the pandemic of COVID-19 for their valuable contributions that lead to improve the quality of the scientific knowledge that serve the aims and scopes of the journal in the fields of Physics and Astronomy.
We are really very thankful for all of our intellectual generosity of the readers and contributors for their patience and support.
