NACADA welcomes member articles and opinion pieces that are directed to practicing advisors and advising administrators. Submissions are reviewed and selected by members of the Editorial Team, and articles are printed as space is available.
Authors should strive to represent a balanced perspective on their chosen topic. The ideal submission is educational in nature, positive in tone, and focused on particular aspects of academic advising.
Publication of AAT articles is announced in an email to all NACADA members. Additionally, a letter of recognition from the Executive Director is sent to the author(s)' administrator(s) of choice. When the article is accepted for publication, the author(s) will be asked to provide the name and email address of the campus administrator(s) who should receive this letter.

should be avoided unless necessary to establish credentials. It is acceptable to use
on first reference as a formal title before the name of a physician or an individual who is a doctor of dental surgery, doctor of medicine, doctor of optometry or doctor of osteopathic medicine.

Fair Use: NACADA members are encouraged to use properly cited quotations as part of scholarly research; likewise, they are encouraged to share articles with individual colleagues.

NACADA's Fair Use Policy
NACADA holds the exclusive copyright for all NACADA publications, including all that appears in electronic (Web, video, CD, audio download, streaming video, etc.) and nonelectronic (print) form. Copyright protects the expression in the work, not the facts, information, or ideas. However, since copyright protects the format, organization, sequence, and style of publications as part of the expression, paraphrasing is only appropriate for limited portions of the original and should credit the source. Close paraphrasing is akin to direct quotation thus permission must be sought from NACADA before using NACADA copyrights materials.
Member benefit publications: The NACADA Journal, Academic Advising Today, and the Clearinghouse of Academic Advising Resources (found on the NACADA Web site) are received or accessed as benefits of NACADA membership and thus are known as “member benefit publications.”
Member discounted Publications and Materials: Books, pocket guides (in print or CD format), and specialty publications (DVDs, Webinars, CDs, video, etc.) that are offered for purchase are NOT “member benefit publications” and thus are known as “member discounted publications and materials.”
