Quest normally publishes three kinds of historical articles: feature & department articles, interviews, and reference. Feature articles are typically long, fully peer-reviewed articles written at the level of professional space historians. Department articles are shorter popular pieces with a less formal review process, typically written by students, participants, scholars or others. Reference articles are short, "encyclopedia-style" articles whose primary purpose is to briefly summarize information concerning individuals, organizations, museums, or archives of interest to Quest's readers. This also includes book reviews. Most Quest readers are current or former space professionals, space historians, and others interested in the history of space.
Published quarterly since 1992, each issue of Quest: The History of Spaceflight is packed with articles written by professional and amateur historians alongside interviews with key figures and visionaries. Each issue is enhanced with photos and charts that will entice the most casual reader while retaining a level of quality essential for scholarly research.
Quest is the only publication solely dedicated to the history of spaceflight. It exists to capture stories related to the people, projects, and programs that have been part of the last fifty years of the civil, military, commercial, and international space activities. Each issue attempts to feature articles in each of its departments: Human Flight & Robotic Exploration; Technology; Military Space; International Programs; Oral History; Space Business; and Archives/Museums.
