Call for Papers
Critical Planning volume 11 summer 2004
Critical Planning, a journal produced by students of the UCLA Department of Urban Planning in association with students from the University of Southern California and the University of California, Irvine, welcomes submissions from graduate students, faculty and professionals for its upcoming volume. The editors will accept papers on any subject relevant to cities and regions, and encourage the submission of papers addressing the special theme(s) of MEGA-PROJECTS IN CITIES/CITIZENS AND MEGA-PROJECTS.
Mega-projects can be thought of as any large-scale, complex project that require technical, financial and management inputs from a variety of sources. The topicís importance is reflected in the increasing or renewed use of mega-projects in development plans both in the United States and internationally. Possible topics for this theme include, but are not limited to, the following:
The role that is given to mega-projects to enhance the economic competitiveness of metropolitan areas in an age of globalization and intensified territorial competition;
The socio-cultural and economic impact of these projects on urban and civic life;
Problematic characteristics of mega-projects being adopted e.g. a political economy analysis of underestimated costs and exaggerated benefits;
Employment effects generated during their construction and later life; and/or
Strategies used by community groups to either oppose, support, or benefit from them.
Articles must not exceed 25 typed, double-spaced pages (this includes a 100-word abstract, tables, illustrations, endnotes and references). Submissions must follow the style and spelling requirements of the Chicago Manual of Style, 14th Edition. References should be cited in the text using the author's last name, year of publication, and page number where appropriate. Endnotes may be used in moderation. Submissions are anonymously reviewed, according to the following criteria: clear statement of thesis and objectives, relevance of the subject matter, clear development of ideas and concise writing. All submissions are subject to final content and style editing by the editors prior to publication. Please submit four (4) paper copies to Critical Planning. Include a cover sheet with the title of the article, the author's name, phone number, email address and a two-sentence biographical statement.
