'The Foundation Review' -- Call for Papers

February 13, 2008

After a very long and sad two weeks, it's time to get back to blogging....

The Dorothy A. Johnson Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership at Grand Valley State University, with support from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, has announced the launch of a new peer-reviewed quarterly dedicated to philanthropy. According to the Johnson Center, the target audience for The Foundation Review is "foundation professionals involved in grantmaking and others who are interested in learning the results of foundation-funded program." Each year the journal will emphasize an overall theme, with each issue in the volume focusing on a particular topic within that theme.

The theme for 2009 is "Community Change," and the first issue, to be published later this year, will focus on Comprehensive Community Initiatives (CCI). Tentative topics for subsequent issues in the first volume are civic engagement, advocacy, and communications.

Review editor Teri Behrens has issued a call for papers for the inaugural issue and the following timeline:

  • March 1, 2008: Abstracts of up to 250 words submitted to behrenst@gvsu.edu.
  • March 15: Notification of invitation for full paper or decline
  • May 30: Full paper due
  • July 15: Feedback from reviewers sent to authors
  • Sept. 1: Revised paper due
  • Oct. 1: Final comments back to authors
  • Nov. 1: Final papers due

We wish Teri and her colleagues success in their new endeavor.
