CALL FOR ARTICLES: APMP Journal of Research
Thursday, August 22, 2013
Posted by: Rick Harris
Have you wanted to write a research-based article about capture and bid proposal management and its place in business development?
Beginning in the winter of 2014, APMP will begin publishing biannually a new electronic journal, the APMP Journal of Research. It will not include feature stories, member profiles, and industry reports. Instead, it will be devoted to articles about proposal development that are based on primary and secondary research along with book reviews.
There will be no predetermined page length for the APMP Journal of Research. Depending on the articles received and approved, one issue might be 15 pages while another might by 30 pages. All articles will be evaluated by outside reviewers to determine their quality and appropriateness for the journal. Jayme Sokolow will be the Managing Editor.
The journal will be read by APMP members, academics in the field of business and technical communication, and people in business development who are interested in evidence-based research, key practices, and the application of theory to proposal development.
A typical article might pass through the following steps from conceptualization to publication:
--Send your idea and/or outline for a potential article to Jayme Sokolow at JSoko12481@aol.com.
--Receive comments from Sokolow and advice about how to proceed.
--Develop a first draft of your article and send it to Sokolow.
--Receive comments from Sokolow.
--Submit your final article to Sokolow.
-- Have your article reviewed by outside reviewers.
-- Revise article for publication based on favorable reviews from outside evaluators.
All articles will be edited by the staff of the APMP Journal of Research prior to publication.
APMP is very excited about this new journal. Every profession needs a knowledge base. Join us in helping to create the knowledge base for proposal professionals based on research in such fields as business, law, economics, technical communications, psychology, and information sciences.
Please send your ideas or outlines for articles to Jayme Sokolow before November 1, 2013 for the first issue of the APMP Journal of Research.
APMP looks forward to publishing an exciting and thought-provoking journal that will educate and inform individuals inside and outside of APMP about proposal and business development.
