Opportunity in A&A to be identified with non-Roman alphabets

A&A offers authors the possibility of being identified with non-Roman alphabets, such as Chinese, Japanese, Cyrillic characters. These names will be in parentheses after the English names displayed in the print issue and the online PDF.
(see specific instructions here).

In order to register your new submission, you need to enter your author identifier. This is a unique and confidential number that is attributed to you upon your first submission to A&A. If you have submitted a paper to A&A before, you already have an author identifier.
If you publish regularly with us, it is a good idea to note your author number for future reference.

If you are a new A&A author, you will be asked to fill out a registration form and an identifier will be attributed to you.

If you have forgotten your author identifier, click on New submission and follow the links for retrieving your number. You will be asked to enter your e-mail address and your identifier will be mailed to the given address if the MMS finds a correspondence between the e-mail address you entered and an A&A author.

If you have recently changed your e-mail address, do NOT fill out a new registration form, but instead contact the Editorial Office at and your author identifier will be communicated to you.
