ACDIS posts short analytic commentaries as often as weekly during the fall and spring semesters and monthly at other times. Submissions should be sent to Authors may imply or directly suggest conclusions from their analysis and need not include references for well-established facts, but for opinions they should either comment factual material or logical analysis relevant to referenced opinions of others or support their own opinions with analytic content. Authors should submit at least three working days before desired posting date to allow for receipt of and possible reply to copy-editing and comments on their submission. Submissions should start with or be accompanied by a short lead as exemplified by a current post on the ACDIS home page. Authors should expect readers to complete reading their piece in a few minutes, so the length of submissions should normally be within 250 and 1000 words.
