The ASEPNewsletter is not a refereed newsletter.  Newsletters are open-ended so as to present a diverse set of opinions.  The papers in the each issue are concerned with issues and topics that have a bearing on the professionalization of exercise physiology.  As Editor, I especially welcome articles that critically address specific features of ASEP and its efforts to develop exercise physiology.  Views that support ASEP's vision, goals, and objectives as well as views that do not provide valuable lessons for our readers.

Submitted papers should be unpublished and non-copyrighted.  Submission of a paper will imply that it contains original unpublished work and is not submitted for publication elsewhere.  The Editor will pursue a policy of timely and meaningful review of each paper.  After the paper is accepted, the author(s) must provide the paper's final version in an electronic file on a diskette.  The paper should follow the example of published articles in the ASEPNewsletter.  The text format is flexible (regarding center headings, side flush headings, and so forth).  The reference style should conform to the style presently used in the JEPonline.
