I am pleased to announce that I am the new editor-in-chief of West's Real Estate Review, a venerable 47-year old publication aimed at providing cutting-edge information on planning, real estate, and development-related issues to practitioners in the broad array of development-related industries.
One of my goals as the new editor is to bring some of the best of academics--legal and otherwise--to this practitioner-focused publication. For instance, perhaps you are holding on to a 70-page law review article that will go into a law review that most practitioners won't read, but maybe you condense the same article into a pithy, short article for RER that becomes something that practitioners can use in practice. It's a great way to do outreach to the practicing development community while also getting the word out about scholarly research.
Practitioners in the development world--lawyers, planners, finance folks--are also welcome to propose articles.
We are currently seeking articles for the upcoming Winter, 2017 edition, which needs first drafts by October 16; and Spring, 2018 edition, which needs first drafts by January 16.
Articles are typically short by legal academic standards: 7 to 25 pages double-spaced (about 3,000 - 6,250 words, including citations). Real Estate Review is available through the general secondary sources searches; authors can get a license to use their publication for non-commercial uses.
If you are interested or have article proposals, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can discuss more.
