      Please take a look below at the call for proposals - and pass this along to
      everyone you know who might be interested in submitting a proposal that

      Roundtable Seeks Manuscript Proposals: Multiple Perspectives on the
      National Report on Sustainable Forests

      The Roundtable on Sustainable Forests is interested in stakeholder
      perspectives on the utility of the National Report on Sustainable
      Forestsâ??2003 and invites you to submit a proposal for a manuscript that
      would be used in its Multiple Perspectives Project. The project's
      objectives are to engage a diverse array of people in discussions of forest
      sustainability, to communicate important messages that emerge from the
      evaluations of the National Report by different stakeholder groups, to
      enhance mutual understanding of the multiple dimensions of forest
      sustainability, and to highlight data needs that must be addressed to
      better understand the trends and conditions of our forests.

      This solicitation is the first step in the Multiple Perspectives Project.
      A Review Committee composed of Roundtable participants will select
      approximately 10 proposals for development into full manuscripts. These
      manuscripts will be posted to a special Roundtable website and will serve
      as the centerpiece of an on-line discussion among forest stakeholders. At
      the end of the discussion period, the authors of each manuscript will
      develop an appendix that responds to the stakeholder feedback their
      manuscript received. All of the manuscripts and appendices will be
      compiled in a special on-line publication of the Society of American
      Foresters. Finally, authors will present their papers at a Roundtable
      conference and workshop in the fall of 2005. The Roundtable will provide
      travel support for one author per paper to attend this event. The Multiple
      Perspectives Project will be managed by professional facilitators from the
      Meridian Institute to reduce bias and ensure a balanced selection of
      papers.

      Manuscript content should include: (1) key messages derived from the data
      presented in the National Report; (2) concepts that were used to arrive at
      the key messages; (3) refinements that could be made to enhance future
      reporting frameworks; and (4) identification of data gaps that limited the
      ability to develop key messages and reach conclusions.

      Interested authors should submit a manuscript proposal of no more than
      1,000 words by Monday, November 1, 2004. More specific guidance on the
      content of manuscripts, detailed instructions for manuscript proposals, and
      key dates are listed in the attached document Instructions for Authors.

      Please feel free to distribute this message to friends and colleagues in
      the forest stakeholder community. If you are interested in a CD copy of
      the National Report, please contact Jay West of Meridian Institute
      (jwest@...; 202.354.6453).
