      From The University of Texas at Austin, Community and Regional Planning:


      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, and built and natural environments. The journal welcomes
      submissions
      of original research papers, timely book reviews, and discussions 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 the parenthetical author-date
      style
      of references, and should include only 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 the proper format of non-text
      elements.
      Submission of black and white photographs to accompany the article is
      encouraged, but publication of these will be at the editor's discretion.
      Images
      must meet the required minimum resolution of 300dpi. Images not produced
      by the
      author must be accompanied by permission to use or reprint.

      Number of Copies: Authors should submit five (5) copies of each
      manuscript,
      which will not be returned, and an electronic copy on diskette or as an
      email
      attachment to the address below. Please include a cover sheet listing the
      article title, author's name, author's address, phone number, and email
      address.

      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 publication.
      Deadlines: Planning Forum, Volume 11, will be published in late spring
      2005.
      Abstracts (250 words max) may be submitted via email until October 1,
      2004,
      indicating that the author intends to submit a full manuscript. Full
      manuscripts prepared according to the guidelines above are due no later
      than
      November 1, 2004. Note: Papers must be received by this deadline, no
      exceptions.
