If possible, the primary means of submission should be via e-mail attachment sent to Articles Editor David Nestor. The e-mail should have a subject line that reads: “ALR Manuscript Submission, AUTHOR’S NAME, Topic of Manuscript.” If e-mail is not possible, then ALR welcomes submissions in hardcopy form via regular mail. However, if you are using mail, we request that you also include with the manuscript an electronic version of the document. This can be submitted on a jump drive, CD, or a standard floppy disk.
In addition, each author should provide biographical information indicating his or her present position, past affiliations or official positions relevant to the subject of the article, and all academic degrees and the institutions from which they were received.
