In an effort to combat growing anti-government sentiments and negative perceptions about public servants, the 2013 editorial calendar of the PA TIMES, print newspaper of the American Society for Public Administration (ASPA), will highlight Public Heroes as a guiding principle of its five editions. While each edition will continue to focus on a timely topic in public administration, each issue will also profile an individual or organization that demonstrates exemplary characteristics of efficient, collaborative and effective public service. We welcome nominations of individuals to profile in 2013. Send your suggestions to Melissa Williams at email@example.com.
We are seeking quality articles and nominations for upcoming print issues.
Articles must remain between 1000-1200 words, contain no reference and adhere to the deadlines below. PA TIMESfollows the AP writing style, with some exceptions. Our submission and author guidelines can be found here or on the ASPA website. Send all submissions to Melissa Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Authors do not need to be ASPA members. PA TIMES will consider ALL original article submissions.
