General Relativity and Gravitation is a monthly peer-reviewed scientific journal. It was established in 1970, and is published by Springer Science+Business Media under the auspices of the International Society on General Relativity and Gravitation. The two editors-in-chief are Abhay Ashtekar and Roy Maartens; former editors include George Francis Rayner Ellis and Hermann Nicolai. The journal's field of interest is modern gravitational physics,[1][2] encompassing all theoretical and experimental aspects of general relativity and gravitation.

Aims and scope[edit]

The aims of General Relativity and Gravitation include public outreach through teaching and public understanding, as well as disseminate the history of general relativity and gravitation. Another aim of the journal is to publish original research on numerous topics. Some of the topics of interest are observational, or theoretical work, in cosmology, general relativity, gravity, supergravity, quantum gravity, string theory (including extensions), relativity, and the related complex mathematics involved.[2]

Publishing formats include original research papers, short communications, commentaries, review articles, and book reviews. The journal also includes mathematical topics related to the journal's science topics, along with mathematical results and techniques.[2]
