Requirements for each category of submission

Scholarly articles

Shorter articles, essays or briefing papers

The journal encourages the submission of shorter articles of a timely nature. These should be approximately 2,500 to 3,500 words in length and require few citations. They will be reviewed only by the Editors, and will generally appear more quickly than those subject to the peer-review process. Unsolicited articles are welcomed.

Student notes

A special feature of the AHIF Policy Journal will be a “Student notes” section.

Book reviews

Book reviews are welcomed and will be considered by the Editors who assume no responsibility for them.

The Review Process

By necessity the timing of the review process varies, but we hope to reply to authors within three to four weeks of receiving the submission.
