Call for Submissions - NWMJ and AAJ, 2008

Recommended Posts

Northwest Mountaineering Journal, 2008


The mission of the Northwest Mountaineering Journal (NWMJ) is to be an edited, permanent, annual record of mountaineering in the Pacific Northwest. The journal documents the events, people, history and spirit of climbing and other mountain sports in this region. The journal is published free on the World-Wide Web by volunteers from the mountaineering community in collaboration with The Mountaineers. Past issues of the journal can be found at: http://www.nwmj.org




The NWMJ editorial team is now accepting submissions for Issue 5, to be published in Summer 2008. The deadline for submissions is March 31, 2008. Submission guidelines can be found on-line at: http://www.mountaineers.org/nwmj/submissions.html


The NWMJ covers all aspects of mountaineering in the Pacific Northwest, from high alpine climbing to lowland rock and ice climbing to ski mountaineering. New route reports, historical or research articles, profiles of interesting people, and land use and access issues are all appropriate topics for the journal. Also welcome are pieces that capture a timely or timeless aspect of Northwest mountaineering, regardless of whether they describe a pioneering climb or historic event.


If you are uncertain about whether your article is appropriate for the journal, please send a query describing your idea to the editorial team. Send queries and submissions by e-mail to "submissions@nwmj.org".


American Alpine Journal, 2008


In 2008, the Northwest Mountaineering Journal editors will again serve as regional correspondents for the American Alpine Journal (AAJ). NWMJ editors will contact persons who have reported new routes in Washington to obtain permission to publish their reports in both the NWMJ and the AAJ.


The NWMJ accepts first-person accounts (100-400 words) of all new routes, first winter ascents, and first ski descents reported in the Northwest.


The AAJ accepts first-person accounts (200-500 words) of climbs of Grade IV seriousness or higher. For shorter routes and current trends, the NWMJ editors will prepare a regional summary for the AAJ.


Our goal is to be complete as possible, so please pass this message along to people who might not otherwise see it. Please submit reports for either the NWMJ or AAJ to the address shown below.

NWMJ editorial team leader
