Editorial Policy
The Journal invites well-written articles on current issues that advocate well-reasoned public policy arguments. However, the public policy argument must be central and clear. It is the express policy of the Editorial Board “to publish good articles, regardless of the source.”

The Journal's mission is to enable diversity in dialogue on important public policy issues. Submissions are encouraged from all disciplines, and all viewpoints are welcomed. Furthermore, the Journal encourages timely responses to articles it publishes, thereby furthering both public policy debate and the Journal’s goal of presenting a bona fide dialogue.

Authors who submit articles should provide the Journal with a typed, double-spaced manuscript. Authors who elect to mail their manuscripts should also provide the same in electronic form (e.g., by enclosing readable CDs or by concurrent submission via the Internet). The Journal requests format in Microsoft Word only. The Journal uses footnote formatting in its publication. Author’s citations should conform to the most recent edition of "A Uniform System of Citation."
