For Authors

If you are interested in contributing, we’d be happy to hear from you! Please write to and provide a bit of information about your background and interests.


Once an author receives an assignment, she or he will receive guidelines and a sample entry to use as they write (please see the links below and the tab “sample entries”). After an entry is submitted, it receives a check by the AMD editors, who may come back with questions regarding the content. Next the entry is copy-edited; entries by non-native speakers of English receive language polishing. They get another editorial check before being returned to the author for any further corrections, and AMD editors will ask for approval of the edits. The final entry will be available to the author in pdf format following publication of the AMD.
