At the inaugural IAU Astronomy Education Conference (AstroEdu[1]), we announced the intention to launch a new Astronomy Education Journal (AEJ). Today, we are happy to inform you that the journal is officially open and is accepting submissions of manuscripts. This online journal aims to be a key global publication platform for both researchers and practitioners, in the field of Astronomy Education, Research, and Methods.
