Article Submission

Have a proven best practice, compelling story, research study or project to share?Metropolitan Universities welcomes the submission of unsolicited manuscripts on topics pertinent to our eponymous institutions. We seek contributions that analyze and discuss pertinent policy issues, innovative programs or projects, new organizational and procedural approaches, pedagogic developments, and other matters of importance to the mission of metropolitan universities. Descriptions of interesting innovations should point out their potential implications for other institutions and the pitfalls to be avoided. Discussions of broad issues should cite examples and suggest specific steps to be taken. We also welcome manuscripts that, in a reasoned and rigorous fashion, are provocative, challenging readers to re-examine traditional definitions, concepts, policies, and procedures.

In addition to accepting unsolicited articles, we also welcome proposals for thematic issues. Prospective guest editors should describe their theme briefly and submit a summary of the topics and proposed authors that would be writing articles for the thematic issue. A thematic issue consists of about 7-8 articles and an overview article by the guest editor(s) reviewing the key issues of the theme. Metropolitan Universities is a peer reviewed journal with some invitational issues.

The Coalition utilizes Open Journal Systems to publish the journal. Learn more about submitting a digital manuscript here.
