Work aimed at compiling detailed catalogs of variable stars in the Galaxy, which has been carried out continuously by Moscow variable-star researchers since 1946 on behalf of the International Astronomical Union, has entered the stage of the publication of the 5th, completely electronic edition of the General Catalogue of Variable Stars (GCVS). This paper describes the requirements for the contents of the 5th edition and the current state of the catalog in its new version, GCVS 5.1. The… 
The Fifth Edition of the General Catalogue of Variable Stars: experiences in the constellation Centaurus
We have recently announced that the General Catalogue of Variable Stars enters the stage of its fifth, purely electronic edition (GCVS 5.1). We have included 1408 variable stars in the constellation
Future of the General Catalogue of Variable Stars from the Experience of Recent Name-lists
Abstract We briefly outline the history of the General Catalogue of Variable Stars (GCVS) and the New Catalogue of Suspected Variable Stars (NSV catalogue). Recently, we have completed a revision of
Version 5.1 of the General Catalogue of Variable Stars for the Constellation Cepheus
A catalogue of variable stars in the constellation Cepheus has been composed in the course of work on Version 5.1 of the General Catalogue of Variable Stars (GCVS). A brief description of work on the
New magnetic chemically peculiar stars and candidates in the ATLAS first catalogue of variable stars
The number of known variable stars has increased by several magnitudes over the last decade, and automated classification routines are becoming increasingly important to cope with this development.
Investigation of Long-Period Variables in the Catalina Southern Catalog: New Carbon Stars and False Objects
As part of our ongoing study of the evolved giants in the galactic halo, we consider the sample of 1286 long-period variables (LPVs) in the southern hemisphere provided by the Catalina Sky Survey
New Variable Stars in NGC 6652 and Its Background Sagittarius Stream
We conducted a variable star search on the metal-rich Galactic globular cluster NGC 6652 using archival Gemini-S/GMOS data. We report the discovery of nine new variable stars in the NGC 6652 field,
Binary Star Population with Common Proper Motion in Gaia DR2
We describe a homogeneous catalog compilation of common proper motion stars based on Gaia DR2. A preliminary list of all pairs of stars within the radius of 100 pc around the Sun with a separation
A Catalog of RV Variable Star Candidates from LAMOST
RV variable stars are important in astrophysics. The Large Sky Area Multi-Object Fiber Spectroscopic Telescope (LAMOST) spectroscopic survey has provided ~ 6.5 million stellar spectra in its Data
AGB candidates in the field of gamma Cas
We report the spectroscopic and photometric monitoring of a sample of 530 candidate AGB stars in a 5 degrees field, selected from the IPHAS catalog: historic light curves were derived from Asiago IR
Long-term stellar variability in the Galactic Centre region
We report the detection of variable stars within a 11.5' x 11.5' region near the Galactic centre (GC) that includes the Arches and Quintuplet clusters, as revealed by the VISTA Variables in the Via

Results from the Catalina Real-time Transient Survey
TLDR
The results suggest that there is a large population of SNe missed by many current SN surveys because of selection biases, and the unexpected discovery of white dwarf binary systems through dramatic eclipses.
