Papers should be about 3,000 words long with no more than eight graphics. We do not accept published white papers or other articles that have been published previously. Please make sure all submitted papers include the following.

☐ Citations are mandatory and need to be cited in the text (10 to 20 citations is the average number for an ASHRAE Journal paper)

☐ Variables in equations must be defined

☐ One-line bio for each author

Abstracts are required. Please submit your paper in Word .doc or PDF format with all graphics, charts and photos embedded in the document itself (as opposed to separate files).
