Scheduled Issues

See below for submission deadlines.

In 2004, primarily to create systematic education resources for a variety of academic disciplines, the AAS Board enacted a policy whereby every issue of EAA would be thematic. A rich body of content appropriate for those academic disciplines that are commonly taught in secondary schools and introductory college and university courses now exists in our archives.

Beginning with the winter 2022 issue, EAA transitioned to a non-thematic format for each issue allowing potential contributors from multiple academic disciplines to submit manuscripts. Contributors have the freedom to be published in a journal whose strength should be its breadth. Manuscripts should be crafted for EAA’s targeted audiences: teachers and/or students in middle, high school, and beginning college and university survey courses. Contributors should also be aware that in considering possible contributions, they select topics that are not too “academic” or political, but are intended to enrich instructor and/or student basic understanding of facts, concepts, and generalizations appropriate for targeted courses including the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and professional fields, e.g., education, business, and journalism.

Given the structural change just described, for a high quality EAA to be published, it is particularly important that contributors visit the EAA archives, become familiar with the publication, and then send a short prospectus to the editorial office before the deadline for submissions for an issue has passed, as well as carefully reviewing the author submission guidelines.

As is the case with all manuscripts, please send electronic versions to the EAA editorial office at, and please also copy the EAA editor, Lucien Ellington, at
