As a general guide, your paper should be about 25–30 double-spaced pages, excluding references, tables, and figures. We understand how difficult it is to present complex ideas clearly and concisely, and we do take the contribution-to-length ratio into consideration. However, please keep in mind that reviewers (and readers) will quickly lose interest in long, rambling, or unnecessarily dense papers that are not accessible to the reader. Please format your paper using the AMR guidelines, which can be accessed through our website at: Submitting to AMR.
