The AAQ has a strong research ethic, with members undertaking their own research, collaborating with other amateur and professional groups, and publishing their research in peer reviewed journals.
The Edward Corbould Research Fund (ECRF) of the Astronomical Association of Queensland (AAQ) was established in 1987 with a grant of $50,000 from Edward Corbould, a property developer in the Queensland Sunshine Coast area.
