The 2020 JSM Proceedings will be published digitally. Authors will submit their papers electronically to a web collection site between 12 p.m. EDT September 1 and 11:59 p.m. EDT October 5. Submit early. The deadline is firm, and you can expect delays due to heavy volume around that time.

Paper Format and Page Limits
JSM Proceedings will be published in electronic format only. To maintain a uniform and professional look, all papers must conform to the formatting requirements. To help in this endeavor, the ASA has created a Word template and LaTeX template (asaproc.cls, template.tex) for you to download and use.
Following are basic formatting guidelines:
- 8.5 x 11
- Margins: 1 in. top and bottom; 1.5 in. left and right
- Fully justified (figures and tables centered)
- 11-point Times New Roman
- Color graphics are acceptable
- Single column
- One space between sentences
- No page numbers (they will be determined later)
- Tables and figures may come within your text or at the end of your paper
- No page limits
You must upload a nonsecured PDF file to the submission site; no other formats will be accepted.
To offset the cost of producing the 2020 JSM Proceedings, the ASA hopes you will consider paying an optional $90 publication fee. You may pay this online when submitting your paper or by filling out this form and faxing it to (703) 684-8069, ATTN: Joyce Narine.
