REACH aims to meet the needs of readers from academia, industry, and government by publishing comprehensive overviews of the science of human and robotic space exploration, life sciences research in space, and beneficial terrestrial applications that are derived from spaceflight.

Special emphasis will be put on summarizing the most important recent developments and challenges in each of the covered fields, and on making published articles legible for a non-specialist audience.

Authors can also submit non-solicited review articles. Please note that original research articles are not published in REACH. The Journal plans to publish four issues per year containing six to eight review articles each.
