Submit an article


The Journal of Employee Assistance is published quarterly and distributed to all EAPA members. The Journal is the leading source of information about the employee assistance profession and industry, with articles, columns, and departments providing a variety of perspectives on subjects such as the EAP Core Technology, EAP standards, substance abuse and addiction, workplace performance and health trends, and best practices.

If you are interested in submitting an article for publication in the Journal, you should first develop a brief outline that states the purpose of the article, the key topics the article will address, and your qualifications for writing the article. Submit the outline to the editor at The editor will forward your outline to the members of the EAPA Communications Advisory Panel for their review. The editor will then share their comments with you and advise you if any changes in the content and/or direction of the article need to be made.

Once your outline is approved, you may begin writing the article. Following are the guidelines you should follow:

  • Articles submitted for publication in the Journal of Employee Assistance should be between 1,600 and 2,200 words in length.
  • Include a brief bio (two or three sentences) with the article. If you have a photograph (head shot) of yourself, please submit it with the completed article. (Photos aren’t necessary, but are published when available.)
  • Be sure to credit all sources of information you use in writing the article. DO NOT use footnotes; instead, use the author-date citation style within the text of the article and include the full citation at the end of the article. If you use online sources, the citation should list the title of the Web page and the name and address (city and state) of the person or organization that owns the page.
  • Suggest a headline for the article and place subheadings within the article to break up the text.
Send the article and a high quality, hi resolution (300 dpi or more is best)color headshot photo in jpg format to the editor at The article will be edited and returned to you for review. After reviewing the edits, return the article to the editor for layout and production.

If you have any questions about these guidelines, please contact the editor at
