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.
New issues of Status are announced to AAS members in the AAS News Digest, which is issued every two weeks. If you are a AAS member and not receiving the AAS News Digest emails, you may correct this problem by contacting Crystal Tinch in the AAS Executive Office.
Subscribers to the CSWA's weekly newsletter, AASWomen, are also notified of each new issue. For instructions on subscribing to AASWomen and to see back issues, visit this link.
A searchable list of tables of contents and both PDF and (2009 and earlier) HTML versions of back issues can be found

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 April 15 and November 15 for the June
and January issues, respectively. Contact the
Editor for more information.
