Call For Papers: Cityscape Data Shop

Cityscape is a scholarly journal published three times per year by the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development's Office of Policy Development and Research (PD&R). Data Shop, a department of Cityscape, presents short articles on creative uses of data. Through Data Shop, readers are exposed to new techniques in using well-known data sources as well as introduced to new or overlooked sources for the purpose of housing and urban studies-related research. Articles presented in Data Shop allow researchers to expand on their data methods in more detail than they may in a policy-oriented paper. If you have an idea for an applied, data-centric article of no more than 3,000 words, please send a one-paragraph abstract to Chalita.D.Brandly@hud.gov.
