ISAR's International Astrologer

 

Greetings, everyone!

There are many benefits available to ISAR members, but we're absolutely convinced that ISAR’s International Astrologer will be at the very top of your list!

This membership-only journal offers a diverse selection of quality articles from every avenue of astrological interest -- from mundane to political/celebrity analysis to "how-to" columns on research and financial astrology. We've got book reviews, conference information, and timely community news. In short, we do our best to include something for everyone in each and every issue. We also insist that our authors write clearly, simply, and concisely in terms that everyone can understand and appreciate. So you'll be able to learn new techniques and absorb new research pointers quite easily. You will love the pictures of members and the activities we do in the name of ISAR and astrology in over 45 countries around the world.

Authors Guidelines

 

The ISAR International Astrologer (IIA) is the publication of the International Society for Astrological Research (ISAR). Our organization’s purpose is to assist and encourage the development and use of techniques relevant to astrological research, astrological education, and a sense of community among a diverse membership. In the process, we set high professional standards of competence in the field of astrology. We on the staff of the International Astrologer take our jobs seriously. We’re looking for material that is simply, clearly and objectively stated. It doesn’t matter if you are a professional or a student – if you have something to teach us, some research to share or some philosophical thoughts on applying astrology to life, we’d like to hear from you. We are looking for quality articles of general interest to all levels of astrologers and students, whether natal, mundane, event, horary, or financial in thrust. The mission of our publication is to present articles that adhere to a high standard of quality in astrological journalism.

The IIA Journal Editorial Staff reserves the right to refuse any submissions and to edit all manuscripts chosen for publication. Queries are appreciated. Mailed articles not accompanied by a stamped, self-addressed envelope with sufficient postage will not be returned. Payment is $10.00 to $50.00 for previously unpublished articles.

 

Submission Guidelines

Please send us your final draft. Except for the addition of missing information or correction of an error, IIA will not allow an author to change any part of an article after it has been submitted unless you are advised to do so by an IIA editor.

The International Journals are keepsakes! Our members hold on to them and refer to them often, so your ads will work for you for much longer than a single season. In addition, you'll be helping to support a non-profit research organization that's dedicated to preserving and maintaining a positive, professional reputation for astrology - which will benefit us all!

Your product or service does not need to be astrological. Many of our members and supporters have other businesses which need advertising - so please do consider networking through placing an ad in our journal
