About The Community Policy Review
The Community Policy Review is an open-access platform for post-peer review analysis by academics, members of communities of practice, and professional policy practitioners specialising in issues impacting British Muslim communities. It aims to be a platform for research and analysis that has potential to offer insights and solutions to key areas of policy relating to British Muslim communities. Articles are intended to be accessible to a wide audience and will be accompanied by other materials (such as videos, podcasts, and briefings) that will highlight their particular benefit to policymaking.
How it works:
- Experts leading research in their field publish analysis on contemporary topics.
- Other experts can carry on the discussion by publishing their response articles to existing articles.
Guidance to authors:
- Articles should be 1,000-3,000 words (excluding footnotes) covering contemporary issues impacting British Muslim communities with a particular focus on structural inequalities, public policy, and political discourse.
- All articles should be hyperlinked to relevant sources or follow the Chicago Manual of Style referencing standards if hyperlinking is inappropriate.
- All articles should centre around a defined argument and conclude with recommendations relevant to UK policy development or promoting socio-economic change. A suggested structure would be INTRODUCTION> STATE ARGUMENT> EVIDENCE & ANALYSIS> RECOMMENDATIONS.
- If your article is in response to an article previously published in the Community Policy Review, you must reference this in the introduction.
- Prior to drafting your article, you must submit a max 400 word abstract for acceptance to [email protected].
- Final articles should be sent to [email protected] along with an author bio of up to 150 words.
