REGARDING SUBMISSIONS: Social distancing in response to the COVID-19 pandemic requires that the AQR editorial team move to remote work wherever possible. After MARCH 27 we will only review submissions on SUBMITTABLE. That means that until further notice, we will no longer review hard copy submissions that arrive after MARCH 27. Specific genre submission windows will be posted on this page.
Important Note: We review simultaneous submissions and request that they be identified as such in the cover letter.
All manuscripts must be typed and include the following contact information in your cover letter and/or on your manuscript: mailing address, phone number, and email address.
Although we try to reply within 4 to 12 weeks, sometimes the review process takes longer. If you do not hear from us after 4 weeks, please do not hesitate to query us about the status of your manuscript.
All general correspondence should be addressed to The Editors. You may contact us via this website or at [email@example.com].

NONFICTION: April 17 to April 30.
