Format for Journal Articles

We welcome submissions of interesting, original articles on American military history, especially topics that deal with significant sites (which could include installations, battlefields, ships and airplanes).  We also welcome articles on biography and historic preservation, especially if they are related to particular sites.  Maps and photos are strongly encouraged,  We ask that authors submit manuscripts by e-mail to our editors, using a system that is compatible with Microsoft Word.  The length of articles that we have published vary roughly between 2,500 and 7,500 words.  The author is responsible for obtaining permission to publish any copyrighted material, and for bearing the costs of obtaining or reproducing illustrations.

Style should conform to standard academic practices.  We prefer endnotes, or simple notes on sources, to elaborate footnotes.  The editors may suggest changes to the author, or simply make changes without consulting with the author.  Although the editors make every effort to stay in touch with authors, please remember that the editorial process is generally measured in months.

The submission of an article is taken as evidence that the author willingly transfers publication rights to CAMP.  However, authors retain all rights for further publication or use.  Authors will receive three copies of the issue in which the article appears.  CAMP policy is not to pay honoraria for unsolicited articles.
