Are you ready to be a published author? Make sure to review our guidelines and format below. By following these guidelines, AML-ology will publish your article in an upcoming newsletter. Thank you for your submission. We look forward to reading your article!
Topics – Authors may submit topics, abstracts or completed articles for review. (AML-ology prefers a completed, first draft of an article upon submission; however, we will consider abstract ideas.) All articles should thoroughly cover a topic and provide introduction, methodology, iterations, and a conclusion. Topics should be timely and relevant.
Length – Our ideal length for an article is roughly 1,500 words; however, they can be longer. If they are more than roughly 3,000 words, we may suggest breaking it up into two or more parts. We will not publish an article with less than roughly 650 words.
Format – All references should be submitted in APA format in a reference list at the end of the article and cited in-text. Please support all facts with references; this provides an additional benefit to members by allowing them to directly access the source for more information. Ideal references are regulations specifically related to anti-money laundering, along with other reputable sources. There is no minimum or limit on the number of references used. Opinions may be stated but should be saved for conclusion statements/paragraph.
For consistency, the basic format of the of the article should be:
- Introduction – topic/issue/challenge
– Methodology – how to address/improve/correct
– Comparison – topic or comparing multiple solutions, if applicable
– Iterations – if there are variations to improve/correct the topic/issue/challenge
- Conclusion – author’s personal thoughts
Biography – Please provide a short biography, no more than 300 words, and a professional-looking picture when submitting your article.
Please provide any graphs you can to support your article, if applicable. If you have suggested visuals that may be best suited in a graphic, feel free to share your ideas, and we’ll do our best to create those.
