State and Local Government Review (SLGR), peer-reviewed and published quarterly, provides a forum for the exchange of ideas among practitioners and academics that contributes to the knowledge and practice of state and local government politics, policy, and management. Of particular interest in SLGR are articles that focus on state and local governments and those that explore the intergovernmental dimensions of public-sector activity. 
    
Founded by the Carl Vinson Institute of Government of the University of Georgia, State and Local Government Review is the official journal of the Section on Intergovernmental Administration and Management (SIAM) of the American Society for Public Administration. Since 1968 the Review has provided a forum for the exchange of ideas among practitioners and academics that contributes to the knowledge and practice of state and local government politics, policy, and management. Like the Vinson Institute, SIAM has an interest not only in state and local government, but also in the effective interaction among public officials in a federal system. It seeks to foster the dissemination of information about research and experience that contributes to the understanding and improvement of the intergovernmental system. 

The Review welcomes manuscripts that focus on state and local governments and those that explore the intergovernmental dimensions of public-sector activity. The journal is comprised of four sections: General Interest (research articles), Research Notes (shorter research pieces), Reviews & Essays (for both book reviews, reviews of literature and essays), and Governance Matters (more practitioner-focused pieces).

    Manuscripts submitted to State and Local Government Review (SLGR) may not be under consideration for publication at any other journal at the time of submission and, following submission to SLGR, may not be submitted for publication to any other source pending written notification of the final decision by SLGR. Submission to SLGR indicates that this is your primary choice for publication.

    To submit your paper electronically, please visit the journal’s SAGEtrack site at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/slgr. You will need to create an account in order to submit your manuscript. If you have any questions, please contact the editorial office.

    Correspondence or queries may be sent to Michael Scicchitano, Editor, State and Local Government Review, University of Florida, 633 N.W. 8th Ave., Gainesville, FL 32601, (telephone) 352-846-2874, (e-mail) mscicc@polisci.ufl.edu.

    The editor makes decisions regarding publication of submitted manuscripts based on recommendations in a blind review process. Information that identifies the author should be omitted from copies submitted for review. Manuscripts are evaluated by members of the editorial board and by other individuals.

    Manuscript Preparation

    Manuscripts submitted for review should generally conform to the style used in SLGR. Upon ac­ceptance, authors are expected to prepare a final version of their article based on the following ab­breviated instructions (more detailed information will be sent separately upon acceptance of the article for publication). Manuscripts that conform to our style requirements expedite the publication process.

    In preparing your manuscript, please keep in mind that readers of this journal have differing technical backgrounds and interests. Information and ideas should be communicated clearly and concisely, and jargon should be avoided, as should the use of first person.

    Authors whose articles are accepted should submit the manuscript as a Word file. Elements should appear in the following order: title, an abstract (not to exceed 100 words), 3-5 keywords, article, notes, references, and tables. In a separate article title page authors should include their name, affiliation, mailing address, email address, telephone number, and a brief biographical statement (describing current professional interests and related publications).

    The editors prefer articles of 20–30 double-spaced pages, including notes and references. Use an 8.5"×11" page format with 1" margins and left justification. Type everything double-spaced, in­cluding notes and references. Organize the article by using primary, secondary, and tertiary headings. Do not use paragraph style sheets.

    Tables and figures should be directly pertinent to—and not duplicate information in—the discussion. Include descriptive titles and source notes. Number each table or figure consecutively, and reference each in the text, which will guide appropriate placement. Each table should be typed (double-spaced throughout) and saved as individual pages at the end of the articles. Figures should be saved in separate files. For figures, such as charts, relevant data points should be provided in a spreadsheet file with the data for each figure clearly labeled. Acceptable file formats include the following: TIFF, JPEG, and PDF. Microsoft application files are acceptable for vector art (line art). Scanned line art (black and white) images should be scanned as a bitmap at 900 ppi. Photoes should be scanned as grayscale or CYMK at 300 ppi.

    It is our policy not to include appendices. Please minimize use of content notes, incorporating as much information as possible into the article proper.

    Bibliographic sources used in the article should be cited in the text and listed in a reference list according to the author-date system outlined in The Chicago Manual of Style, 15th ed. The reference list should contain only those works cited in the text.
