The URBAN scholar-activist network’s publications committee has drafted guidelines to aid editors and reviewers of sociological journals and conference papers in assessing community- based research submissions. The guidelines are also intended to support community-based researchers who are presenting studies for critical reviews. Members of the URBAN publications committee will present these guidelines for discussion at multiple events at the 2015 meeting of the American Sociological Association from August 22-25 as well as at the 2015 meeting of the Society for the Study of Social Problems from August 21-23. Both conferences will be held in Chicago, IL. The Chairs of the Boston and Los Angeles URBAN nodes are speakers in several of the sessions at ASA.
