SPPD Review Call for Submissions

SPPD Review

The student-run journal of the USC School of Policy, Planning, and Development

In Spring 2011, SPPD will release its next publication of its first-ever student-adjudicated academic journal, The USC SPPD Review. On behalf of the editorial committee, we invite you to submit your work for our upcoming online issue!


Submissions must have been originally written for an SPPD class in the past year (January 2010 onward), contain Chicago-style citations, and contain a maximum 250-word abstract. Above all, submissions must be modern, relevant, and polished. No page limit is enforced.

Students may submit up to one individually written paper, and/or up to one group assignment (with the permission of all group members). Selected pieces may be subject to further editing by the Journal’s senior editors and/or faculty advisers.


· E-mail paper to sppd.review@gmail.com by Monday, 1/17/2011

· Include: your name, phone number, preferred e-mail address, SPPD course name, number, and professor.

Submissions are due no later than Monday, January 17th, 2011.

Papers will be reviewed through a blind review process by the student-run committee. One piece per degree program will be selected for this season’s journal. All students, faculty, and the general public will be able to access the journal online through the SPPD website.

If you have any questions, please contact sppd.review@gmail.com or visit our www.sppdreview.com to submit online.

Thank you for your support!
