Author Guidelines

Authors are expected to prepare manuscripts consistent with our Information for Authors. Manuscripts must be solely the work of the author(s) stated, must not have been previously published elsewhere, and must not be under consideration by another journal.

Manuscripts are first screened for fit with the Journal’s Aims and Scope, and readiness for peer review. The editor may elect to reject manuscripts at this stage, or request revisions prior to initiating the review.

Estimated time from initial submission to publication: five to six months.


Metropolitan Universities accepts both unsolicited manuscripts, as well as articles for specific thematic issues.

Manuscripts should be evidence-based, practical and focused on issues of urban and metropolitan universities and their cities. The readers of the journal (primarily executives, administrators, academic leaders and faculty) value articles that identify innovations and strategies that may be replicable in other campus settings. On occasion, the journal will publish a book review, essay or opinion piece, if the manuscript is well supported by relevant literature and evidence, and is on a topic of high importance to urban and metropolitan universities.
