Featured Series: The Community Development Research and Practice Series

In partnership with Routledge, the Community Development Society is pleased to present this new book series.

It will serve community developers, planners, public administrators and others involved in practice and policy making in the realm of community development. The series will provide timely, useful and applied information for researchers, students, and practitioners. Building on a 40 year history of publishing the journal, Community Development: Journal of the Community Development Society, the book series seeks to contribute to the growing and rapidly changing knowledge base as a resource for practitioners and researchers alike.

To Submit a Proposal:

See the guidelines posted at the Community Development Website. Each work in the series will be published in hardcover, paperback, and electronic editions simultaneously. Each volume will be approximately 250 to 300 pages long (a manuscript of between 80,000 and 90,000 words and around 20 or 30 images). Volumes can build on special issues or themes from the Journal, or new topics that are of interest to the profession. The author(s) of each volume can invite chapter contributions if desired. A proposal must be written and submitted to the Series Editor/Editorial Board for consideration. The Board will make an initial decision on review, then submit to Routledge for their consideration. Final decision is made at that point, and a contract is placed between author(s) and Routledge. It is anticipated that two volumes will be published per year in the series.

We welcome your ideas and proposals for this exciting new Series!
