PRACTICE INSIGHTS ISSUE NO 9: COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT IN THE AMERICAS: CALL FOR ARTICLES
IACD publishes its international ‘Practice Insights’ three times a year. Each deals with specific issues or aspects of practice that are relevant to our audience: community development practitioners, activists, researchers and policymakers. The publications draw from experiences across the world and aims to include materials from all seven IACD global regions. The main form of distribution is electronic, but IACD often produces a small print run of each for use at conferences and events.
IACD launched its first issue – on community development and anti-poverty strategies – in November 2012 (http://www.iacdglobal.org/resources/ ). It has so far published eight issues and the ninth issue is to be published in December 2017, with focus on North and South America. A special issue on Africa will be published in April 2018
Guidelines for contributors
Articles prepared in word format should be up to 1000 1500 words in length. These can be case studies, research findings, polemics or commentaries upon public policy as it impacts upon community development within a country or across the North and South American continents, including the Caribbean.
Articles should be in English without jargon (remembering that for many of our readers across the world English is a second language) and to set out the experience in ways which help readers to make links with their own practice. The editors can assist here. Each submitted article will be reviewed to assess its suitability for publication.
We request all authors to attach graphics/photographs that help illustrate the article – and ensure that these are in high-resolution format, suitable for printing.
