  • Eligibility

    No specific eligibility requirements

  • Formatting

    Photos and artwork intended to accompany a manuscript may be submitted in high-resolution electronic form with photo permission information.

  • Author's rights

    The Humanist is indexed in the Readers Guide to Periodical Literature and other leading indexing and abstracting resources. Authors and other contributors give implicit permission for such publication when they submit materials. Because of this wider publication, our articles are frequently discovered by book and magazine editors who contact us for author and reprint information. This provides a good reason for authors, artists, and photographers to consider publishing in the Humanist and to keep us up-to-date with your contact information.

  • Additional info

    Recent, previously published material will be considered if it appeared in a non-competing, low-circulation periodical or a purely local publication. To learn more about what we’re looking for, visit the Key Issues page of the American Humanist Association.
