Bulletin of the Association for Information Science and Technology


How to Submit Materials, Suggestions, and Ideas

Suggestions for articles and special topic issues are encouraged and welcomed. Send suggestions directly to the Editor (bulletin@asis.org). You do not have to be a member of ASIS&T to publish in the Bulletin. Articles are generally short (2,000-5,000 words) and preferably without footnotes or formulas. Articles should be written with information practitioners in mind and may discuss case studies, information technology applications, information policy, user behavior, information description or other information science topics. The Editor provides quick response to submission requests, and articles are published within a few months. 

Submissions should be revisable attachments to email. RTF, Microsoft Word or other generally recognizable word-processing formats are acceptable. In order to ensure that images will be usable, even though the Bulletin is an e-magazine, they should be in separate jpeg or tiff files and should be suitable for high-resolution reproduction. Please do not incorporate images into word-processing files. More detailed guidelines are available from the Editor on request.
