2013 Editorial Calendar
In an effort to combat growing anti-government sentiments, the 2013 editorial calendar of the PA TIMES, ASPA's flagship print newspaper, will highlight ‘Public Heroes’ as a guiding principle of its five editions. While each edition will continue to focus on a timely topic in public administration, each issue will also profile an individual or organization that demonstrates exemplary characteristics of efficient, collaborative and effective public service. We welcome nominations of individuals to profile in 2013. Send your suggestions to PA TIMES Editor, Melissa Williams at email@example.com.
Articles must remain between 1000-1200 words, contain no reference and adhere to the deadlines below. PA TIMES follows the AP writing style, with some exceptions. Our submission and author guidelines can be found here or on the ASPA website. Send all submissions to Melissa Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Authors do not need to be ASPA members. PA TIMES will consider ALL original article submissions.
