How do I submit an article?


First, look at our "how to get published" page. This will give you the basic steps to follow. We recommend study of Department of the Army Pamphlet 600-67, Effective Writing for Army Leaders in addition to study of our style manual. DA PAM 600-67 has a pithy presentation of the Army writing standard and style rules in its Chapter 3, Paragraphs 3-1 and 3-2. If you want/need more information on our editorial policies, see that webpage. The writer/editor coordination process is outlined there, among other concerns writers often have.


How long should my article be?


AC articles average between 1,000 and 3,000 words. Shorter or longer articles, as well as two- and three-part articles, are accepted if they are appropriate in interest and value. See our manuscript formatting page for more information.


What should I send you when I submit an article?


Your manuscript package should consist of these items in this order:

  • Cover letter/cover page requesting publication, including work phone number, email address, snail-mail address and manuscript word count;
  • 1,000- to 3,000-word original, unpublished manuscript submitted as simple word-processing document and with proper attribution to sources;
  • Manuscript on 3 1/2-inch diskette if submitting article hard-copy, or attached to email if submitting electronically;
  • Author biographical sentences at article's end;
  • Acronym list following short author biography;
  • Photos or illustrations submitted separate from the text (not embedded in the text), with each piece of "art" as an individual file in JPG or TIF format;
  • Letter or email from private-sector organization/copyright holder getting permission for us to use a private-sector photo or illustration and/or copyright release, if applicable;
  • Word-processing document containing adequate description of the photographs/illustrations and photographer/illustrator credits.
See the manuscript formatting page for more information.


How do I obtain articles from back issues of Army Communicator?


We recommend that you first check our "archives" page. A number of articles will be on-line. If you do not find the specific article you are looking for, you may request a "hard copy" of the article. POC information is located on the right side of this page.

If your special-interest area isn't listed, or you don't know the year the article you're interested in was published, you may find the "Search the Army Communicator" feature a more expedient jumping-off point. If the article isn't on-line but was published in AC's printed edition, ask the editor to photocopy and mail it to you.
