POLICY OF ELIGIBILITY FOR SUBMISSIONS
The Co-Editors wish to encourage as many submissions as possible from NAISA membership and beyond. Anyone wishing to submit is encouraged to do so, including sitting members of any elected NAISA body (such as the Council or Nominations Committee) or members of any appointed body (such as the Editorial Board). The Co-Editors will take great care that any given issue, and each yearly volume (2 issues) will be balanced in authorship and will not over-represent NAISA officers/council/committee members/editorial board members. The occasional guest-edited special theme issue might prove the only rare exception to this policy.
