Most of the articles are written by members—why not you! Contact Abigail Christian, SAA's Archival Outlook Editor, with your queries and ideas. Articles are typically 700 words (one page in layout) to 1,200 words (two pages in layout) in length and should include some kernel of information that will enlighten the reader professionally. They may focus on best practice and how-to pieces, timely and relevant topics, how archives are used by the public, or archivists on the job. Photographs are encouraged.

Deadlines are December 1, February 1, April 1, June 1, August, 1, and October 1 for inclusion in the next issue. SAA follows the Chicago Manual of Style. Please submit a Word doc and relevant images (jpg or tiff) separately.
