Publications Department

The Communications and Publications Department is composed of four sections: Book Publishing, Research and Directories; Periodicals; Graphics and Production; and Customer Service. The department focuses on planning, producing, promoting and coordinating the publishing efforts of the Association.

Our award-winning publications include Corrections Today magazine; Corrections Compendium, a peer-reviewed research journal; ACAConnect, an electronic newsletter; and numerous award winning books, directories and standards manuals. We also publish Correctional Health Today, a peer-reviewed journal for members of ACA's Healthcare Professional Interest Section. Information on the more than 300 publications, courses and videos available from ACA can be found here along with guidelines and information on publishing with the association.

Meet the Director of Communications and Publications

Mina came to ACA as director in March 2016. She started her 24-year publishing career in Hong Kong at Asian Sources Timepieces and—after a brief but wholehearted attempt at running her own publishing company—most recently managed content and production at Washington Family Magazine and USA Today magazines. Her favorite aspect of being in publications is that she gets to learn new industries; association publishing, in particular, has opened her world to construction, marketing, defense, real estate, logistics—and now, corrections. She attended Ohio University and holds a BS in journalism and BA in English.
