Authors retain complete control over their work, and COMM-ORG supports authors revising their papers for submission to journals, trade publications, or anywhere. Because COMM-ORG is an on-line “conference,” papers presented on COMM-ORG are easily published in journals and other official publications.

We are especially interested in papers on the following and other topics:

* What works and what doesn’t in community organizing, planning, and development.
