Paper submission to the Journal is open to the public. However, authors whose paper(s) are submitted for publication, will be required to be current paid members of ALTA before their articles are published. In preparing the manuscript, follow the guidelines found here.

Manuscripts should be:

  • Between 7000 to 10000 words; a maximum of 20 pages (excluding references, charts, notes, etc.) and submitted electronically via Microsoft Word document e-mail attachment.
  • Double-line spaced throughout, including notes, references, and tables, using 12-point Garamond font with a one-inch margin. (Please ensure that this specified formatting is followed).
  • Accompanied by a 150 word (or less) abstract and a cover sheet containing the manuscript title, name, address, office and home telephone numbers, fax number, email address, and full names and institutions of each author. (Because the manuscript will be blind reviewed, identifying information should be on the cover sheet only, and not appear in the manuscript).
