Job and fellowship postings are $250 ($150 for institutional members), and inclusion in the ASA quarterly email can be added for $50.

Ads submitted during the week are posted within 24-36 hours of submission. Ads received over the weekends are posted on Mondays. Jobs and fellowships are also cross-promoted to relevant committees, chapters, and caucuses for maximum publicity. 

To submit a call for paper: The ASA also hosts calls for papers or participation to connect members with opportunities ranging from conferences and symposia to edited collections, special issues, or awards.
