Short Articles

line_purple.gif (164 bytes)

  • The short article is the most flexible vehicle available to authors, in terms of subject matter, style, and length. Their subject matter and scope is essentially the same as that of the longer feature articles, the distinction being primarily one of length and accessibility.
  • Short articles are limited to roughly one page of type, or approximately 700 to 1,200 words.
  • Compared to the longer feature articles, short articles should be more accessible to the general readership since they require less of a time investment on the reader’s part. For this reason, use of footnotes, endnotes, or Greek/Hebrew is not acceptable in this context. Highly technical language or very specialized subject matter would also be inappropriate.
  • Please provide a title for the article and the author’s name as you would like it listed (e.g., with or without middle initial, appropriate prefixes and/or suffixes).
  • Please also provide a brief (1-2 sentence) description of the author, such as educational degrees, current position, past involvement with the subject at hand, etc. This qualifies the author’s views.
  • Photographs or other graphics are welcomed to stimulate reader interest and provide graphic relief. Please submit either original photographs or 300 dpi scans (saved in JPG, TIF, or GIF format). A small portrait (e.g., passport photo) of the author would be highly desirable.
  • Email submissions are preferred; articles may be sent in the following formats in order of preferability: (a) Word file; (b) RTF file; (c) plain text (ASCII) file, which may also be inserted directly into the body of the email. Send to:
  • If email submission is not possible, clearly typed or legibly written copy may be mailed to:

    Vahe Tcharkhoutian, Chair and Forum Editor-in-Chief
    1495 Riviera Dr.
    Pasadena, CA 91107

  • Submission of an article does not guarantee publication. All submitted articles are subject to editorial review and correction. Unless specifically requested by the author, the editorial changes will not be sent back to the author for approval.
  • Unless other arrangements are explicitly made prior to publication, the author of any article submitted for consideration consents to the publication of the article and waives any rights under U. S. copyright law arising from the publication of the article against the AEUNA or its agents.
  • If the article has already been submitted elsewhere for publication, please notify the editor at the time of submission.
  • Deadlines for submission for each issue are as follows:

        APRIL issue - February 10th
        OCTOBER issue - August 10th
