The BIS produces three regular magazines, available to our members and subscribers.  All publications are available either in print edition or digitally, and back copies can be ordered in either format from our shop.  If you are interested in writing for our magazines, or submitting a paper to JBIS, click here.

SpaceFlight is our monthly magazine focusing on current developments and news related to space exploration around the globe. As our main membership magazine, it also contains Society news.

SpaceFlight is available from selected branches of WH Smith, McColls and independent newsagents in the UK, as well as some overseas outlets. Appearing first in 1956, a year before the launch of Sputnik and with Sir Patrick Moore as editor, it has been at the forefront of space exploration ever since.




The Journal of the British Interplanetary Society (JBIS) is our monthly academic, peer-reviewed journal, containing papers on a wide range of topics linked to the space sector.

Read by Fellows and Members of the Society, as well as being available in a number of international universities and public libraries, JBIS is a leading source of the latest thinking around space exploration, astronautical engineering, space law and other issues. First published in 1934, JBIS was the first to describe many aspects of space travel which are now commonplace. As well as back copies of issues, individual papers can be purchased from our shop.

Space Chronicle is our recently relaunched quarterly magazine bringing together historical features, articles on archive material and insights into previous achievements, milestones and untold stories.

With an emphasis on promoting the rich heritage of history within the Society and its archives, Space Chronicle welcomes submissions from Fellows and Members on any aspect of space history.






Please note: Back issues of all our publications are available to purchase from the BIS Shop.
