Interested in Writing for NACADA publications?

NACADA editors encourage all academic advisors interested in writing to contribute to the expanding professional literature base by writing articles that feature research, theory, and practice within the advising field. Furthermore, they strive to present all publications in a professional showcase that distinguishes the organization and promotes the profession within a scholarly and practical context. Specific guidelines for each publication venue (linked below) provide the context in which the articles will appear. 

To assist authors in effectively communicating to these standards, NACADA solicits input from experts as reviewers and content editors as well as specialists in managerial, developmental, and copy editing. Each project receives in-depth and comprehensive attention by those with decades of experience shepherding new and re-newed authors in the publication process.

NACADA Commitment to Professional Editing and Publishing

Authorship does not end upon manuscript acceptance; rather writers enter the editing phase as part of a team made up of respective editors. Authors must follow the Writing Guidelines for NACADA Publications. A writer can expect to revise the manuscript after reviewers and content editors refine the focus of the work. Once the content of the manuscript is finalized, it will move into the production phase which includes various stages such as reference checking, copyediting, proofreading, etc. In collaboration with the editors and managing editor, the author will address specific queries and revision suggestions throughout these various stages to ensure the manuscript is properly vetted, clearly articulated, and stylistically appropriate for NACADA publication.
