Guidelines for Topic Proposals
SPR topics stem from editorial board solicitations and proposals by prospective authors. The editorial board welcomes multi-author teams that include not only researchers but also policymakers and practitioners. As part of topic proposals, authors should state the policy consideration(s) as specifically as possible.
To propose a SPR topic, prospective authors should download and populate this fillable PDF, save their changes, and email the document to Editor Lisa Berlin: SPR@srcd.org, who will respond within approximately four weeks. Following approval of topic proposals, manuscripts should be uploaded to the Social Policy Report ScholarOne submission portal.
