Status is the CSWA's semiannual publication, formerly printed but now electronic only. The January 2011 issue was the last one to be printed. Status consists of
reprinted articles on topics relating to women in astronomy, in
science and/or in society. Contributions, such as editorial columns, factual
articles, personal stories and letters to the editor are welcome from
anyone. See below for contribution guidelines.

Guidelines for Contributions to Status
Contributions to Status are welcome! Previous issues will give you
ideas of the type of articles we publish - biographies of women astronomers,
articles on women in science (not just astronomy), opinion pieces, policy
issues, advice to young scientists, book reviews, "snippets", artwork and, last
but not least, Notes from a Life - a short piece describing an incident
(preferably with some lesson learnt) in the writer's life (published anonymously).
We try to include as much original material as possible, but if you see a good
article that you think the Status readership may have missed, please
suggest it to the Editor.
Submitted material may be edited for conciseness, clarity, and correctness of expression, subject to the author’s review before publication.
Deadlines: initial submissions are due March 1st and November 1st for the June
and January issues, respectively. Contact the
Editor for more information.
