I have an idea for an entry in a scientifc journal (probably JAPA or some other publication). Has anyone had any experience with this? I'm not an academic, but would like to contribute to a journal as a planner. Are there any sources for funding?
I also went to the websites for think tanks including the Smart Growth Network, Congress for the New Urbanism, Urban Land Institute, the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, and the Chaddick Institute. However, I don't know the degree each of these organizations are open to outside reasech. Any and all thoughts are appreciated.
