Armed Forces Comptroller

Editorial Policy

Armed Forces Comptroller (AFC) was first published in 1956 and is the Society's primary means of sharing professional information. Articles are received from a variety of sources, including academia, government, and the membership at large. The Editorial Board of AFC performs a difficult and often thankless task. They review each article professionally and impartially. Their comments are frequently provided directly to the author and contribute to improving editorial quality of the journal and the perspective of the author.

To submit a Letter to the Editor, please email afc@asmconline.org.

Articles for Publication

Although the articles must meet a high standard of literary excellence, members are encouraged to become authors. Challenge yourself and develop an article for publication. Even if it is not accepted, the preparation and the research will contribute to your professional development. We have printed a wide range of viewpoints on the many issues facing the community. As a private organization, the Society does not have to reflect the "party-line" on any topic.

As a published author you can reach an audience of more than 20,000 including schools and libraries. It is a great challenge, but one with a great reward.

Submit an Article

If you are interested in submitting an article to AFC, download a copy of the Author Guidelines. Please email Brian Gresham or Terry Placek for current and upcoming AFC issue themes. CDFMs can earn CPEs toward their recertification. More information on page 6 and 9 of the CPE Policy Guide (PDF)
