The Atla Summary of Proceedings is a historical record of the Atla Annual.
This open-access publication includes summaries of the pre-conference professional development workshops, reports of business meetings and conversation groups, texts or programs from worship meetings, and the full text or abstracts of plenary sessions, papers, posters, and workshops presented during the conference.
Atla Members receive a complimentary edition of the Proceedings. Members may select either a printed or digital edition at the time of joining or they may update their selection in the My Atla Web Portal under the Publications tab. Please note: the issue will not be published within the membership year and will be available in December. (For example: If you are a member from 2020-2021, you will receive the 2021 Atla Annual Summary of Proceedings in December 2021.)
Members and conference attendees will have an opportunity to update their preferences for a printed or digital edition up until two weeks after the conference has ended.
If you do not renew your membership, you will still receive the edition as requested.
The Summary of Proceedings can be found here: https://serials.atla.com/proceedings/index. Members, as well as Atla Annual attendees who opted-in for a printed edition, will receive it in the mail in February. Members may also view the Proceedings from 2011 to 2018 at the My Atla Web Portal under the Members Only Content tab.
Non-members or members seeking additional print copies may order the printed edition at $60 USD for domestic and $80 USD international per volume. Contact an Atla membership associate for more information on how to order.
Persons speaking at or presenting at the Annual Conference, including persons who lead conversation groups as well as pre-conference or in-conference workshops, will submit their papers and other accepted documents at the Proceedings site. All submissions must comply with the submission guidelines. The guidelines list all conference sessions for which papers will be accepted. We have also prepared a video that shows step-by-step how to submit papers to the OJS site for the Proceedings.
All submissions are due by July 15 of the year in which the conference was held.
