Call for Submissions to SPP Journal No. 53: Partners

The AIA Small Project Practitioners (SPP) requests articles (approximately 500–700 words) and practice tips (approximately 100–400 words) for upcoming issues of the SPP Journal. Please share an experience, an anecdote, a failure (lessons learned the hard way), or a proven best practice. We always need “tips”—the little gems you can share to make our work easier and our practices more successful. The upcoming issue of the Journal will follow these themes:

Choosing (or Leaving) a Partner

Forming a partnership is the first step many of us take when going out on our own. How did you choose your partner? What were the challenges in learning to work together? How do you maximize each of your strengths? If you chose to be a sole proprietor, what factors contributed to this decision? If you were a member of a now-dissolved partnership, what events led to the dissolution, and what did you learn from the process?

We know there are a lot of stories out there, and we look forward to receiving your articles.

Images and Submission Guidelines
Please visit the Guidelines for Authors.

We are visually oriented people, so please include graphics, drawings, or photographs that enhance your submission. We want to see behind-the-scenes construction photos, sketches, detail drawings and their transformation in the field. We even want cartoons.

The online version of the SPP Journal is set for color images. Please submit images of at least 150 DPI as separate .JPG files, and include image credits and caption information.

Submit all text as MS Word documents and include a two- to three-sentence description of the author. Title your work, and include a signed copy of the AIA Copyright Permission form, listing the article and all images.
