We welcome applications from current students, industry leaders, and former MPP graduates. The purpose of this blog is to make high-level policy research accessible to the general public. To that end, posts should be:
Between 500-900 words. Occasionally, we will accept longer submissions of up to 3,000 words, but this length has to be justified.
Accessible, but also original. This means that we expect you to reference your sources, and back up your claim with empirical evidence. We used hyperlinked footnotes in all of our publications; however, we don't want an academic article, so don't make it too footnote-heavy. We like it when you link to other articles, or debate other policy writers (see U of T's policy website).
We're still outlining our house style guide. So don't worry too much about whether you use Chicago, APA, or MLA at this point.
Everybody likes pretty pictures. Please include graphs and images where you can, to engage us and other readers. Original or cited content only, please.
Photographers, we welcome donated photos of the YYC landscape or anything related to our policy topics (see the main navigation bar). The higher the resolution, the better.
Radio broadcasters, if you have any brilliant podcast ideas, let us know!
