Ratkaisu-lehti and Tiedotuksia-lehti

Ratkaisu-lehti (in Finnish)

Ratkaisu-lehti (ISSN 03558274) is an AA member's bi-monthly periodical published by Suomen AA-kustannus ry, an exchange of experiences and messages of the AA movement. Ratkaisu magazine publishes the writings of members of our worldwide fellowship about their recovery experiences and their relationship with AA's 12 steps and traditions. No single philosophy or worldview gets a special position in its pages. When choosing editorial content, the editorial is based on AA's principles of recovery, unity and service.

An essential part of Ratkaisu magazine is sharing experiences. However, it should be noted that individual members, as well as AA groups, are very diverse. A magazine can have very different and even contradictory articles on the same topic. This is how the scope of our members' thinking becomes apparent in the articles. The magazine also thoughtfully publishes articles related to alcoholism, the authors of which are not necessarily AA members

The magazine's editors have the right to accept or reject the submitted material. The editors can correct submitted articles in terms of readability, style or length without changing the content, unless the author has expressly forbidden it. Writers are encouraged to write about their experiences in their own individual way.

The articles are not expressions of AA or alcohol politics, and they should not contain strong positions on issues outside of AA either. The publication of any article should not be interpreted as a sign of official approval of the AA movement or Ratkaisu magazine. No writing or photography fees are paid for the articles, and they are not returned.

Ratkaisu magazine is read by many parties and persons outside the AA movement. The magazine is the calling card of Alcoholics Anonymous. The magazine has an effect on how outsiders see us.

Ratkaisu-lehti has an editorial board, which includes six AA members in addition to the editor-in-chief and editor. Materials for Ratkaisu magazine must be submitted by e-mail or in writing.
