Introduction to the Virtual Library

Go to Top


The Virtual Library of Astrosociology contains two major of resources for the astrosociological community:  (1) original material sent directly or indirectly to ARI and (2) a reference section consisting of non-posted materials.  This page includes the contributions of others received by ARI in the forms of (1) original articles written exclusively for ARI, (2) papers delivered at conferences, and (3) existing printed articles that are posted ("reprinted") with permission.  The growth of astrosociology as a legitimate field depends on a concentrated effort by a new community of scholars and students who dedicate themselves to this new area of study through the systematic application of theory and research.  All of these future articles will be offered to provide new ideas about the various specializations of astrosociology.  They are intended to provoke discussion and contribute to the growth of a new body of astrosociological knowledge.  ARI will post various works deemed to be acceptable based on the value of their content and their contribution to the diversity of existing posted works at the time they are submitted.

Original materials directly address astrosociological concepts and phenomena while materials in the bibliography may also include items that are indirectly related.

References added to the Virtual Library prior to 06/01/2008 existed on the web at Astrosociology.com where those files still exist so that the links from prior papers and publications will still work.  References placed into the library following June 1 will exist only in this version of the library only.
