Now Accepting Book and Interview Proposals!

Interview Proposal Guidelines
  • In approximately 500 to 750 words, your interview proposal should identify the person you wish to interview, explain why the person is significant, and lay out a realistic plan to conduct the interview.
 
  • We do not have specific content requirements, but we suggest reviewing the interviews that Policy Perspectives has published in past volumes (for example, with TSPPPA alumni Andrew DiRosaand Admiral Thad Allen) to get a sense of what might be appropriate.
Book Review Proposal Guidelines
  • In approximately 500 to 750 words, your book review proposal should identify a work in the fields of public policy or public administration and explain why the book is significant.
 
  • You may also choose to review multiple related books together.
 
  • You do not need to have finished reading the book(s) at the time you submit your proposal, nor do you need to submit a draft of the review itself. After reviewers are selected, you will have until Friday, January 22, 2016 to read the book(s) and write the review.
 
  • We do not have specific content requirements, but we suggest reviewing past book reviews on our web site to get a sense of what might be appropriate.
 
  • We will not publish reviews of books that have already been reviewed by Policy Perspectives.
Please submit only one interview or book review proposal for consideration. If you are already a Policy Perspectives author or Associate Editor, you may not submit a proposal.
