Annuals of the Next Generation (ANG) is a refereed, scholarly journal that provides a venue to showcase the next generation of scholars of color, by publishing the research of graduate students.  ANG highlights research from multiple disciplines and areas, and allows these young scholars to present their work to an international audience.  A manuscript submitted to ANG should be a Microsoft Word file.  Manuscripts should be formatted into a 8 ½ x 11 document with one inch margins, should be Times New Roman 12 point typeface, and should not be more than 30 double-spaced pages (including references).  The submission should conform to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th edition).  The title page should contain the article name, authors’ names and complete affiliations, and the address for manuscript correspondence (including e-mail address and telephone number).  A descriptive abstract of no more than 100 double-spaced words should be included in the manuscript.

Manuscripts will be acknowledged by the managing editor upon receipt.  After an internal editorial review, manuscripts will be forwarded anonymously to at least two external reviewers.  The review process may take anywhere from 6 weeks to 3 months. Once the manuscript has been reviewed, the author(s) will be notified about the status of the manuscript.  Every effort should be made by the author(s) to remove any identifying markers from the manuscript.  Manuscripts accepted for publication are subject to copyediting.  Manuscript submission indicates the author’s commitment to publish in ANG and to give the journal first publication rights.  No manuscript known to be under consideration by another journal will be reviewed.  It is a condition of publication that author(s) vest copyright of their manuscripts, including abstracts, to The Center for African American Research and Policy.
