Volume 23 Article Submissions Due Soon!

 

We welcome all current and former TSPPPA students to submit an article to Policy Perspectives, whether you are pursuing or have completed your master’s degree, doctorate, or a certificate. In order to showcase the work of as diverse a group of people as possible, we do not accept submissions from individuals who have already published work in Policy Perspectives. We do, however, accept submissions with multiple authors. We do not have specific length or content requirements, but we suggest reviewing past articles on our website to get a sense of what might be appropriate. We particularly recommend ensuring that your topic has not already been covered in recent volumes of Policy Perspectives.


You may only submit one article for consideration. In order to review submissions as fairly as possible, please  submit your article anonymously. To do so:

  1. Upload your article through this form with your name(s) and any other identifying information removed from the file.

  1. Send an email with your name(s) and article title to polpersp@gwu.edu with the subject line “Volume 23 Article Submission.”

Submissions are due by 11:59 PM on Sunday, September 13, 2015. Everyone who submits an article will hear back by Wednesday, October 7.

To learn more, visit www.policy-perspectives.org. If you have any questions, please email us at polpersp@gwu.edu or stop by MPA 602A during our open office hours on Tuesday, September 1, from 4:30 to 6:30 PM or Thursday, September 3 from 8:00 to 9:00 PM. We look forward to your submissions!
