Papers submitted for consideration for PPLD's Regional History Series publications should be between 6,000 and 12, 000 words, including endnotes. The deadline for the near-final draft of a paper is always in early May. The revised final paper is due for evaluation in early July. It may take several months for the editorial committee to consider papers for publication. Not all submissions are accepted. To ensure a paper submission is accepted:
Comply with all deadlines
Read and follow the recommended practices on this website
Solidly tie the paper to the topic of the publication
Cite sources correctly
Present new research
Use primary sources
Though the Regional History Series publications are about the Pikes Peak region, our target audience is not limited to local readers. Papers should be written to appeal to readers who are not familiar with the region's history, geography, or personalities.
Papers can be uploaded from the Contact page.
