PA TIMES Releases Editorial Calendar for Print Editions

Washington, DC–The PA TIMES, print newspaper of the American Society for Public Administration (ASPA), has released its 2012 editorial calendar and is currently seeking quality articles for upcoming print issues.


Intended as a thought starter for potential authors, the calendar hits many of the hottest topics currently being discussed. Authors are encouraged to review the list of topics, however article submissions need not conform to these topics, particularly if they are addressing a timely news topic.

Articles must remain between 1000-1200 words, contain no references and adhere to the deadlines below. PA TIMES generally follows AP style, with some exceptions; request our submission guidelines for more specific information.

If you have any questions or would like to see our author guidelines, contact Editor Christine Jewett McCrehin at [email protected]. Please pass this along to any colleagues who may be interested in writing for the paper. Authors need not be ASPA members and the PA TIMES will consider ALL original article submissions.
