The manuscript should be uploaded as a Microsoft (MS) Word file (not a PDF) and should include, in the following order: abstract, text, figure captions, catalogues or appendices, list of works cited, and endnotes. It should be typed double-spaced in 12-point Times New Roman font with 1-inch margins on all sides and should conform as much as possible to article format and editorial style.

Tables should be uploaded as individual MS Word files (not a PDF) and numbered consecutively. The AJA cannot generally print tables longer than one published page (see also Article Format).

Upload figures as individual .tif, .psd, .eps, or .ai files (not a PDF) and number them consecutively (see also Figure Preparation).

Supplementary content should be submitted at the same time as the initial submission.

Authors should make every effort to maintain anonymity in the text and should not include any information in headers or footers in the MS Word files or image files. Non-native English-language speakers are strongly advised to have their manuscripts read and edited by a native English speaker prior to submission.

A manuscript will not be considered for review if it does not conform to the above instructions.
