Remember that they're probably still publishing material that was planned before the acquisition.  Remember also that before the acquisition, there were widespread reports of financial difficulty, and that may have discouraged authors from submitting good material.  So it will be a while before we see any changes.

From what I understand the changes the AAS will make are minimal.

I just now discovered this on the Sky and Telescope website which can be found here: https://www.skyandte...y-jma-hp-widget

Apparently the last management made bad business decisions and finally had to declare chapter 11 bankruptcy.

AAS was the highest bidder, which is great. I'm happy for them and for S&T.

Now that PDF's are available to subscribers through Nxtbook again, they just need to get the Shop@Sky store back up and running.  With that, harmony will be restored to the universe.  wink.gif
