Submission Guidelines

The Cornell Real Estate Review is a student-managed publication charged with advancing key issues confronting the real estate industry. The Review welcomes well-researched, current articles from professors, practitioners, and students. Submissions accepted for publication will be published online as soon as editorially practicable.

All accepted articles will become part of a permanent, searchable database hosted by the Cornell University Library. The editorial board reviews all submissions and will notify the author(s) of acceptance or provide revision recommendations in approximately six to eight weeks upon receipt. Articles are accepted for review throughout the year. However, the deadline for consideration in the annual edition is February 15, 2015.

Submissions are Encouraged for the Following Categories:

Articles

Author(s) will describe and analyze developments in their areas of expertise or interest as they relate to real estate. Articles should represent original work, ideas, or research and will be accepted from faculty, alumni, real estate professionals, and graduate students pursuing either a master's degree or PhD in a real estate-related field. Suggested length is approximately 5,000 words.
