Submissions from Africa-based members and women are particularly encouraged.

  • Content must be your original work
  • You may re-post the same article to your blog or another site, provided the ASA blog page receives credit as the original source, and the re-posted article is linked back to the ASA's webpage. 


  • Text should be roughly 500-1500 words
  • Author Byline – Your name, title and affiliation. We can also link to your website or blog here, so please provide any URLs you would like to see published
