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 questions or would like to submit a proposal for a data-centric article, contact Chalita Brandly at Chalita.D.Brandly@hud.gov. For formal consideration of a proposal please use the subject line “Data Shop Submission for [Publication Month]” and submit a Word document that in 2 paragraphs or less (1) clearly states the objectives of the analysis, (2) concisely describes the method employed in gathering the data, processing, and analysis (highlighting either a new/uncommon technique used in your research methodology or an overlooked source or application of data); (3) summarizes the results and potential implications for future research or policy, and (4) states the principal conclusions of the analysis.
Final submission should be +/- 3,000 words (excluding an abstract, exhibits, keywords, references, and acknowledgements). Deadlines vary by publication month and are shown below.
