Ideas and manuscripts must be clearly directed to PMP News’s readership, must not repeat recent coverage of the same topic, must be sharply focused on a well-defined thesis, and must meet the standards of peer reviewers.
Authors interested in writing articles should consult with editorial staff before beginning manuscripts. Query letters, summaries, and outlines are welcome.
