Journal Helps Young Scholars Get Published

October 31, 2014

Young scholars face pressure and frustration in their efforts to get their research published. In today’s competitive job market, refereed publications are crucial for job placements or faculty advancement. Future academicians are often uncertain about how to get published, how to prepare an article for publication or determine which journals are the most appropriate outlets for their research.

State and Local Government Review (SLGR), the journal of ASPA’s Section on Intergovernmental Administration and Management, has created the Young Scholar Outreach Program. This program is designed to assist young scholars with publishing in academia and fostering a productive research agenda. The program provides consultation and guidance in support of their efforts to get published in State and Local Government Review (SLGR)—or in other journals.

Participation in the program is simple. For young scholars who have a manuscript on topics related to public administration and policy, the editor of SLGR will review an abstract, article proposal or existing paper and provide feedback on its suitability for publication. Participants will receive recommendations regarding changes to make manuscripts more appropriate for the journal and to improve the chances of favorable reviews.

If there is a recommendation that the manuscript be submitted for review, it will be double-blind peer-reviewed by a panel of experts.

If the manuscript is not accepted for publication after the review process, the author will receive recommendations regarding how to best revise the research and suggestions on more appropriate journals for potential publication.

For more information or to participate in this new program, contact Mike Scicchitano, editor of State and Local Government Review. He can be reached at [email protected].
