Welcome to the electronic version of the Journal of the AAVSO. The eJAAVSO consists of papers that have been refereed, edited, and accepted for publication in the paper edition of the JAAVSO.

These electronic representations of the JAAVSO articles are automatically indexed and included in the NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS). We would like to thank R. L. Merriman for his work in preparing the earliest abstracts for submission to ADS. If an electronic article has not appeared in print yet, authors may reference it as "J. Amer. Assoc. Var. Star Obs., in press".

Downloadable datasets which are included with some JAAVSO articles are cited in the text of the article, and links to the FTP site for the datasets are given on the article's electronic abstract page.
