February 18, 2021

The American Association for Anatomy (AAA) is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt scientific organization that advances anatomical science through research, education, and professional development. AAA members include scientists and educators who research and study everything from humans to fossils to fish.

Statement of Policy

AAA reserves the right to control its publications' content and reserves the right to unilaterally reject or cancel advertising or sponsored content in its publications for any reason. AAA has established the following standards for advertisements and sponsored content in its publications. For purposes of this policy, “advertisement” or “ad” is loosely defined as any print or digital dissemination of artwork or content by AAA on behalf of the advertiser/sponsor; this may include, but is not limited to, display ads, sponsored content (sometimes called “advertorials”), sponsored email or social messages. Additionally, AAA Career Center listings or advertisements are subject to the Career Center guidelines; placements in any of AAA’s journals are subject to guidelines established by our publisher, John Wiley & Sons Inc.

Advertiser Guidelines

  1. All advertisements will be reviewed for consistency with AAA’s mission, values, strategic priorities, and policies.
  2. AAA provides no endorsement of advertisers’ services or products.
  3. AAA is not responsible for claims made in an advertisement appearing in its publications.
  4. AAA will not allow any advertisements that may damage or compromise the association’s or members’ reputation.
  5. AAA will not accept advertising for candidates for elective office. Advertisements must be non-partisan and non-political.
  6. AAA reserves the right to reject any advertisement deemed inaccurate, misleading, prejudicial, intolerant, unethical, or otherwise inappropriate for a professional scientific publication.
  7. AAA requires that advertisers comply with applicable local, state, and federal laws. Ethical standards may exceed legal compliance, and preservation of AAA's nonprofit status will take precedence.

  9. Other than returning prepaid fees, AAA is not liable for any alleged loss or damages if an advertisement is omitted for any reason.
  10. Advertisers are responsible for complying with advertisement dimensions, file formats, and closing dates.

  12. Advertisements are available on a first-come, first-served basis, and space-available basis.
  13. Payment in full is required before publishing or disseminating the ad.
  14. Questions about this Policy should be directed to the association’s Executive Director or Director of Marketing and Communications.

By purchasing advertising from AAA, the advertiser and/or their representative agrees to all terms within this policy.
