Call for Article Submissions, Progressive Planning Magazine
PNers! Want to share a progressive planning story relating to affordable housing, sustainable transport, social justice-focused urban design, issues of accessibility in the city, refugees, food security, public space, exclusionary/inclusionary zoning, equity planning, resisting gentrification (private-led or state-led), participatory budgeting or other planning-related topics? Consider submitting an article to the Magazine and sharing your planning experiences and insights! Below are the Magazine’s ‘Guidelines for Submission’.
Progressive Planning seeks articles that describe and analyze progressive physical, social, economic and environmental planning in urban and rural areas. Articles may be up to 2,000 words. They should be addressed to PN’s broad audience of professionals, activists, students and academics, and be straightforward and jargon-free. Following a journalistic style, the first paragraph should summarize the main ideas in the article. A few suggested readings may be mentioned in the text, but do not submit footnotes or a bibliography. The editors may make minor style changes, but any substantial rewriting or changes will be checked with the author. A photograph or illustration may be included. Submissions by email are greatly appreciated.
Please note that while we work with authors to help them fit the Progressive Planning Magazine style, format, and themes, we cannot accept all articles that have been submitted. The typical article goes through three layers of editing: editing by a theme or issue editor, an overview editor, and a copy editor. December 15 is the deadline for submission for the next issue and March 15 for the issue that follows. Send articles to <firstname.lastname@example.org>. Before drafting and submitting an article, we recommend that you review some sample past articles by visiting: <http://www.plannersnetwork.org/category/progressive-planning-magazine/>. The most recent issue (Fall issue), which includes articles on Detroit, will be posted on our website soon.
