Call for Manuscripts and Peer Practitioner Reviewers For 'Practicing Planner'

Jerry Weitz & Associates, Inc.

Are you looking to publish your work, ideas, or opinions about planning practice? Do you have a planning success story to tell? Have you used a particular planning tool or technique and would like to share your knowledge with other planners? Maybe you want to take a position on some issue about practice, management, or ethics? Perhaps you have a planning project that wasn't successful at all but other planners should learn from it? If so, here's an opportunity to tell your story!

Practicing Planner is intended to provide an in-depth exploration of the details of professional planning processes, facilitate national/global professional planning dialogue, espouse standards of professional planning, and provide professional planning tools and information.

Practicing Planner will still include case studies (which are always welcome) like those published in Planners' Casebook, but it will also include other types of manuscripts about planning practice. The editor is looking immediately for the following two types of manuscripts:

1. "Planning practice features," which are future-focused, challenging, and explore the evolving landscape of planning practice. A planning practice feature may take the following forms: exploration of planning management; exploration of ethics; point/counterpoint dialogue pieces; and a focus on evolving/controversial, in-process planning projects.

2. "How to" pieces, which point readers towards "what they need to know" about a given tool or technique (e.g., transferable development rights, fiscal impact analysis, etc.). Manuscripts of this type provide significant, evolving, and emerging standard planning resources that enhance the practice of the professional planner.

If you have an idea for a manuscript, wish to submit an abstract, or would like to receive the draft editorial guidelines for Practicing Planner, please contact the editor by e-mail. Stipends are available for case studies, planning practice features, and "how to" manuscripts.

The editor is also seeking volunteers who would like to serve as an occasional peer practitioner reviewer for manuscripts sent to the editor.
