2017 Call for Papers to Students and Professors

We are seeking submissions for the 15th annual edition of the Cornell Real Estate Review. For students, a submitted and published article will count one CRP credit towards graduation. Final articles will be 3,000 to 5,000 words (six to eight pages).

Focus of Publication

The Review focuses on the interdisciplinary nature of real estate, blending informative articles on real estate practice with application-based academic research. The Review covers a broad range of issues from the various real estate disciplines including design, business economics, engineering, finance, law, planning, development, marketing, and property management.

In addition to the subjects mentioned above, the 2017 edition will focus particular attention on "disruption in real estate." This was the focus of the 2016 Cornell Real Estate Conference, covering such topics as:
