ALTAIR is the official journal of the American College of Genealogy. The journal articles are to be submitted no later than 15 May and 15 Novembe. The process is by Peer Review.
"Scholarly peer review (also known as refereeing) is the process of subjecting an author's scholarly work, research, or ideas to the scrutiny of others who are experts in the same field, before a paper describing this work is published in a journal. The work may be accepted, considered acceptable with revisions, or rejected. Peer review requires a community of experts in a given (and often narrowly defined) field, who are qualified and able to perform impartial review. Impartial review, especially of work in less narrowly defined or inter-disciplinary fields, may be difficult to accomplish; and the significance (good or bad) of an idea may never be widely appreciated among its contemporaries [Wikipedia].
New issues of the Journal will appear on-line for all members of the School as well as certain member of the academic community. The Journal is available to the public for $4.00 an issue.
