How do I write for ACA?
you have to determine whether you want to write an article for Corrections Today, or
write a book. Please see the link for Corrections Today submission guidelines. For book
publishing see the link on this site or contact publications at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I would like to read some of the book manuscripts submitted to ACA and have a hand in determining which ones are chosen to be published.
Please contact Publications at email@example.com and she will send you a form to complete about your background and experience. Then, when we have a manuscript in your area of expertise, we will call you to see if you have the time to review the material. If you do, we will send it to you along with an evaluation form to complete. Incidentally, manuscripts and reviews are sent out blind, that is without any of the author's or reviewer's names, so that the author or reviewer can be free of bias or preconceived ideas about the material.
We had some changes in our agency and information in an ACA directory is now wrong. How do we get it corrected?
To send updated information, contact Publications at firstname.lastname@example.org or fax the changes to (703) 224-0000.
