|Quarterly Contribution Guidelines|
The ALGA Quarterly welcomes submissions from current or past members, the auditing community in general, outside experts, and others interested in topics relevant to the field of auditing. If you are interested in writing a regular contribution, please contact the Editor. To submit an abstract of a recent audit, please go to the ALGA Abstracts.
Quarterly readers report that they particularly like practical “how-to” articles that can be easily applied to their own work. Case studies that describe actual methodology used or discussions of audit challenges, including practical solutions, are well received.

For purposes of the editorial and formatting process, Quarterly submissions should meet the following criteria:
Authors should strive to submit articles that:
Articles should be submitted online using the Quarterly Submission Form. The submission must include:
Authors should only submit a final draft with a clear introduction and conclusion, including appropriately placed subheadings, and free from spelling and grammatical errors. The Publications Committee will edit the article, making minor corrections or contacting the author if more extensive corrections are needed.
All articles that are submitted at least one month before the next publication date will be considered for publication in the next issue. Accepted articles are filed according to their date of acceptance, but they may not always be published in precise chronological order because of special editorial considerations (an issue focusing on a special theme, for example). In rare instances, we will have more articles than can be accommodated in a single issue. In the event that an article is postponed, the author will be notified.
