Planning Forum Information for Contributors
Planning Forum serves as a medium for the multi-disciplinary exchange of ideas related
to the study of human communities and to the interaction of social,
political, built, and natural environments. The journal welcomes
submissions of original research papers, timely book reviews, and
discussion of current debates, literature, and theory. The journal's
intended audience is primarily academic graduate students and faculty
members in worldwide planning-related disciplines but also includes
practitioners who work in fields directly related to journal content.
Submission Guidelines: Suggested length is 5,000-10,000 words, including notes and references.
Please indicate the number of words on the cover sheet. Authors should
follow the style and spelling requirements of the Chicago Manual of Style,
14th Edition. Authors should use parenthetical author-date references and
should only include those works actually cited in the text. Planning Forum cannot accept papers that include footnotes. Papers are reviewed
anonymously, authors should therefore refer to themselves in the third
person in text and notes. Each illustration, chart, table, or graph to be
included in the text should be submitted on a separate sheet, with desired
text locations clearly indicated. If the manuscript is accepted, the
author will receive detailed instructions regarding an acceptable format
of non-text elements. Submission of black and white photographs to
accompany the article is encouraged, but publication of these will be used
at the editor's discretion.

be returned, and an electronic copy on diskette or as an email attachment

Review Process: Submissions are anonymously evaluated by the student editorial staff and
faculty reviewers according to the following criteria: clear statement of
purpose or thesis, clear significance of the contribution to an existing
body of literature, clear and effective writing, and use of explicit,
sound, and appropriate methods. All submissions are subject to final
content and style editing with the acquiescence of the author before
Deadlines: Planning Forum, Volume 10, will be published in late spring 2004. Abstracts (250 words
