AJA requires authors to select the appropriate article type for their manuscript and to comply with the article type descriptions defined by the journal.

We suggest authors use the Word Template that is provided in the attached link, as this can speed up AJA's publication of accepted articles.

AJA requires manuscripts submitted to meet international English language standards to be considered for publication. The default language style accepted by the journal is American English.

American Psychological Association (APA) reference style is recommended by us to cite the sources used throughout the article. All references should be alphabetically ordered by the last name of the leading author of the cited source, including those that may appear in figures, tables, supplementary materials, and/or appendixes. References appear at the end of the manuscript and no reference should be duplicated. It is recommended that authors use bibliography software packages, such as EndNote, BibTeX, or Reference Manager, to help prevent configuration errors in the reference. Digital Object Identifier (DOI) should be included in all references where available.
