Astronomy Reports (Russian: Астрономический журнал), is a Russian, monthly, peer reviewed, scientific journal. This journal tends to focus its publishing efforts on original research regarding astronomical topics. Other types of reporting are also included such as chronicles, proceedings of international conferences, and book reviews. Founded in 1924, it is described as the most prominent astronomy journal during the age of the Soviet Union. Originally a print version, it is also available online. The Editor-in-Chief is Alexander A. Boyarchuk, Institute of Astronomy of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russia.
This journal, currently titled "Astronomy Reports", continues with the same Russian title as when it was known in English as Soviet Astronomy. The former Soviet Astronomy shares exactly the same Russian name as this journal, exactly the same print issn, but the US Library of Congress lists this under a different and unique number in its catalog. Soviet Astronomy ceased publication with volume 36, no. 6 which was published in 1992.

Astronomicheskii Zhurnal is translated into English by the International Academic Publishing Company Nauka/Interperiodica (MAIK Nauka/Interperiodica), which is also the official publisher.
