This is an outstanding opportunity to see your work in print alongside an outstanding group of leaders from across the academic and public policy community. Past and present authors include Congressmen, State Representatives, distinguished faculty, students, and a wide array of community leaders.

The VPR is the public policy journal associated with the University of Virginia’s Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy. Editions are produced on a semi-annual basis.

There is no limitation on content so long as it touches on public policy in some capacity. Topics may include, but are not limited to foreign affairs, economics, healthcare, education, and environmental issues among others. Our editorial submissions typically range in length from 2-6 pages. Research journal pieces tend to run from 5-25 pages. We continuously look for the best possible content and as such place no limitations on potential authors. Please feel free to forward this invitation to anyone you feel may have an active interest. Guidelines for submissions can be found here.

Submitted articles must be original content. We do not reproduce or syndicate work. Please send all through our submissions form.

Submissions for the Spring 2015 Issue are currently being accepted.
