Susan Kistler on Seeking Contributors for aea365

If it is Saturday, it must be Susan. I’m Susan Kistler, the American Evaluation Association’s Executive Director, and I contribute each Saturday’s post to aea365. Today’s post is a call to action.

Hot Tip – aea365 is seeking contributors: Yes! We’re looking for aea365 authors to fill the new year with great content spanning the breadth and depth of the field. You’re a regular reader, right? So you know that aea365 posts are only 450 words or fewer in length and that they share tips, tricks, resources, and lessons learned. Stumbled upon a great piece of software? Share a review of your find! Had success working with hard-to-access populations? Tell what worked and what didn’t. Here are a few more ideas:

  • Concrete Tips and Resources for data analysis (Quantitative or Qualitative)
  • Theory-to-Practice lessons learned
  • Explorations of new tech tools (or old ones used more efficiently or effectively)
  • Short discussions of new books that have influenced your practice

Interested in contributing? Please send a note to with your topic idea. We have multiple openings for the new year and would like to get the publication schedule planned out this month.

Rad Resource – contribution guidelines: You can find the aea365 contribution guidelines online here.

Lessons Learned: aea365 is a great way for students and new practitioners to share what they’ve learned and for more senior colleagues to provide sage guidance. We welcome contributions from readers spanning the professional spectrum and working in any context, but do reserve the right to refuse contributions that do not align with the association’s values or aea365’s contribution guidelines. What’s in it for you? You contribute to a vibrant community, become more known among aea365’s 2500+ readers, and receive the laud and appreciation of your colleagues (and me!).

Hot Tip – Seeking bloggers: Are you an evaluator who blogs? We’re also going to run a short series this winter on evaluators who write their own blogs or consistently contribute to other blogs and would love to hear from you.

Don’t be shy! Send a note to today.
