Call for Papers – Canadian Journal of Local Government
The Editorial Board of the Canadian Journal of Local Government is pleased to offer an initial call for papers. The Canadian Journal of Local Government is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal examining local government policy and management. The Journal aims to connect academics, practitioners, policymakers and others with timely, peer-reviewed research on a wide range of issues related to municipal government in Canada.
The Canadian Journal of Local Government welcomes submissions from academics, researchers and practitioners. Articles may cover a range of topics, such as municipal management and leadership, local government policy, intergovernmental relations, planning, environmental sustainability, local public finance, affordable housing, infrastructure, public transit, elections and election administration, public safety and emergency preparedness. Manuscripts should be between 4,000 and 7,000 words and will be subject to rigorous peer-review. While the focus of the journal is local government in Canada, submissions that examine local government outside Canada or in a comparative context will also be considered.
