While we no longer publish a formal Oregon Planners Journal (OPJ), the Journal lives on through the OAPA News Blog. Articles written by practicing planners, academic researchers, and others may be submitted for consideration for publication on the OAPA web site and promotion through the OAPA Newsletter. When submitting an article, please proofread and edit your text, provide relevant photos or graphics (if applicable), and submit your biographical and contact information along with the article.
The editors may edit the document for clarity and/or length. Submitting an article does not necessarily guarantee it will be published.
