Guide to Contributors in Preparing and Submitting Manuscripts for Review
Conditions of Manuscripts. Articles must be first submitted in a Microsoft Word file (Windows PC compatible) to the editor found in the "Contact Us" section. Following a double blind peer-review, manuscripts deemed acceptable for publication will need to be transmitted to the production editors for copy-editing and production typesetting also using a Microsoft Word file (Windows PC compatible). Accepted manuscripts should be formatted in the style specified in the new manuscript format guide.

Pedagogy. The editors of The Journal of Regional Analysis & Policy wish to encourage our readers to submit their suggestions/techniques for improving the teaching and learning environment in courses devoted to regional analysis and policy. Papers submitted may describe new data sources appropriate for class exercises, applied techniques designed to illustrate facets of our discipline, new software utilized in the classroom environment, or, simply, new perspectives on presenting the core concepts of our courses. While not undergoing the usual blind review process, the editors and editorial board will try to maintain a level of utility and clarity as well as a lack of redundancy in publishing submissions. We hope this section of JRAP becomes a regular feature for the exchange of pedagogic techniques designed to stimulate nascent scholars in our discipline.
Book Reviews. We encourage the submission of reviews of recent books that pertain to regional analysis and policy.
