Listings Required Electronically

Effective with the January 1999 issue (December 15, 1998 listing deadline) the ASA Employment Bulletin will require all listings to be transmitted electronically. This new policy is designed to ensure more efficient production and to reduce the number of errors due to entry of listings received via fax or mail.

Listings should be transmitted as an MS Word attachment to an e-mail message and should be sent to The text of the e-mail accompanying the attachment should specify issues of publication as well as a billing address. Listings should be submitted allowing adequate time for electronic transmission.

Institutions without access to e-mail may submit listings on a 3 1/2" floppy disk, which should be accompanied by a hard copy specifying issues of publication and billing address, mailed to: ASA Employment Bulletin, 1307 New York Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20005-4701.

All listings must be received by the 15th of the month prior to publication (e.g., December 15 for the January issue).


Individual subscriptions (calendar year) are: ASA members, $10; non-members, U.S. and Canada, $40; elsewhere, $55. The Bulletin is mailed first class in the U.S. and air mail overseas. Information on listings is assumed to reflect bona fide openings at the time the ads were placed. Applicants should contact employers for more complete information or changes. ASA expects institutions in the U.S. to adhere to Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employment practices. We endorse Equal Opportunity practices and accept only ads that are not discriminatory on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, age, national origin, sexual orientation or physical handicap. The ASA also reserves the right to edit all copy and refuse ads. ASA's liability for listing errors is limited to refund of the fee paid and/or placement of a corrected listing in the next issue at no charge. Decisions about appropriate remedy for errors are made at the discretion of the ASA.
