I hope that each of you are having a wonderful week thus far! Thank you to those that were able to attend our inaugural Journal Launch Party on Wednesday September 30th to commemorate the release of our 12th journal publication. We had a wonderful turnout and the Ford School's MPP alumnus Patricia Paola Padilla Lara did a fantastic job talking about her experience working through the editing process as an author last year.
The Michigan Journal of Public Affairs is now accepting submissions for our next journal volume from graduate, professional, and undergraduate students. The deadline for all submissions is Thursday December 31, 2015 at 11:59pm EST. This year we are introducing a new component to our journal publication in the form of a special issue category. The theme and requirements of this category are distinct from the general submissions category, enabling authors to use alternative forms of policy writing instead of the format for standard academic journal articles if they wish. Please consult the attached document and the MJPA website for more details about submission criteria, as well as other FAQs.
If you have any questions about the submissions process please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org, but if you need something promptly please indicate this in your message and we will work to expedite our response to your request.
Please feel free to share this opportunity across your networks and departments. We look forward to receiving your submissions!
