Memorial Minutes
Share |

The APA has historically published memorial notices for deceased members of the association biannually in the general issues of the Proceedings and Addresses. Beginning with the 2013–2014 membership year, the Proceedings and Addresses ceased to exist in its previous print format, transitioning to a single annual print volume rather than five issues per year. Much of the content that previously appeared in print is now published online only. We will continue to publish the memorial minutes in the annual print volume, and we will also publish them online, where they may be accessed by APA members and web content subscribers.

How to submit a memorial notice for publication

Notices for inclusion in the memorial minutes section on the APA website and in the annual issue of the Proceedings and Addresses should be no more than 1,000 words and should include the years of birth and death. Authors’ names and affiliations should also be listed. Alternatively, if a memorial notice was written as a group effort on behalf of a department, it should be specified that the notice is being submitted on behalf of the department; individual authors’ names should not be listed.

Accompanying photographs are welcome. Images submitted with Memorial Minutes should be high resolution (300 dpi or better) and may be in grayscale or color. A professional headshot or portrait is best. We will gladly accept images of any resolution or quality, but we reserve the right not to publish submitted images at our sole discretion.

The following statement of permission must be included with all photographs submitted with memorial notices:

I hereby grant the American Philosophical Association permission to use and reproduce the attached image(s), in conjunction with the Memorial Minute and any other memorial notices for [name of deceased] published on the association’s website and in the Proceedings and Addresses of the American Philosophical Association, without any further payment, recognition, or consideration. I specifically consent to any alterations to the image that the association deems necessary to render it suitable for publication. I certify that I hold the copyright to the attached image or am otherwise authorized to grant the above permissions. I waive any right to royalties or other compensation arising or related to the use of the image(s).

All submitted work must be original. Due to copyright licensing, we are unable to publish notices or announcements that have previously appeared elsewhere.

Memorial notices may be sent via email to Jamel Hicks at The annual issue of the Proceedings and Addresses will be published in the late fall. Memorial notices are posted online on a monthly basis.
