The Editor of the Woodrow Wilson Center’s China Environment Forum (CEF) is pleased to announce a call for proposals for feature articles, commentaries, boxes and infographics for the next issue of our annual China Environment Series publication. This publication will not only dive deep into the air, water and waste challenges facing Chinese cities but will also focus on grassroots solutions to problems at the local level. Here is a chance to share an idea of your own! Below are some possible themes for contributions (but please only use these as a guideline). If you have a pertinent topic related to China’s energy and environmental issues, particularly about successful international cooperative initiatives, feel free to pitch it to us.

The China Environment Series is distributed both in print and electronically to 5000+ energy and environmental experts in our network. Those in the CEF network are engaged in research, projects and campaigns on pressing Chinese environmental issues. Issue 13 will be published in September 2014.

Please see the attachment for more details.

Please email proposals for features, commentaries, boxes, or infographics to Jennifer L. Turner at and Susan Chan Shifflett at by December 13, 2013. We will respond to all submissions within a week. Final submissions will be due March 31, 2014.

Authors will be given style guidelines after proposals are accepted. Good luck!
