Invites submissions for its



STPA invites undergraduate and graduate students who have written research papers related to transportation policy and administration during calendar year 2010 to submit their papers for consideration. Papers should be prepared according to a standard style such as APA. They should be between 15 and 25 pages in length and include citations and references. The review committee encourages students to submit copies of previously prepared research papers, conference papers, and journal article manuscripts. Literature reviews and review essays are not eligible for consideration. Papers co-authored with faculty members are not eligible, nor are papers written by groups of students. The committee will evaluate papers in a blind review process. Students are asked to limit self-references to a title page that can be removed prior to review by the committee. Papers should be submitted as an e-mail attachment using MSWord (.doc) or Rich Text Format (.rtf).

Reviewers will rate papers on:

· the relevance of the research to transportation policy and administration,

· the appropriateness of the chosen methodology,

· the clarity of the writing,

· and the overall quality of the paper.

The best paper will receive a $250 prize. At the discretion of the Committee, an honorable mention paper may be selected.

The deadline for receiving papers is April 29, 2011.

Send papers or questions regarding this call for papers to: John Bartle at
