If you’re looking to build your publishing credentials and share your research with a wider audience, the Evans School Review is accepting submissions for their 2014 journal!
The Review is an online, student-led, peer-reviewed academic journal hosted at the Evans School of Public Affairs. They publish graduate-level, multidisciplinary research addressing various dimensions of public policy and management. As an exclusively student-run publication, the Evans School Review “strives to highlight innovative research and novel ideas that work to strengthen sound public policy and management and influence the current dialogue around policy issues of interest.”
If you have an idea that sounds like a good fit, the deadline for submission is Saturday, February 15, but you are encouraged to submit your work as early as possible to leave as much time for careful consideration and editing. Check out the “Submission Guidelines” below for a full breakdown of what the Review publishes.
- The Evans School Review publishes scholarly articles, research papers, degree projects, opinion-editorials, book reviews or features that broadly fall under the subjects of public policy and management.
- Scholarly articles, research papers and degree project submissions must adhere to a 5,000-word limit. Opinion-editorials, book reviews and features must adhere to a 1,500-word limit.
- Research papers should include substantive evidence with solid theories to support conclusions. Although author opinion will inevitably find its way into submissions, this should be muted as much as possible wherever it is unsupported by the methods taught in social sciences and at the Evans School. Papers that bridge the divide between theory and practice are encouraged.
- In accordance with professional journal practices, the Review will not check citations; we assume that our authors submit works with honest intent. Incorrect citing of sources reflects poorly on the author’s future career, as it is considered plagiarism and a violation of academic honesty.
- Submissions are reviewed based on internal and external logic, critical thinking and originality.
Submissions should include:
- One cover document containing all author(s) information, including name, mailing address, telephone and email address. Please indicate the primary author and primary contact if there are multiple authors. Do not show any author’s name on any page of the article.
- A one-page abstract (approximately 150-250 words).
- A brief biographical statement of each author (up to three lines).
