Starting from November 2016, the well-known ESPI publication series “ESPI Perspectives” has been overhauled and retitled “Voices from the Space Community”.
While this new series retains many key aspects that made its predecessor a successful and popular publication, with more than 70 contributions over the years, a number of changes were adopted in order to ensure the quality of the series, a faster publication process, and ultimately a broader participation and free exchange of ideas.
In its “Voices for the Space Community” series ESPI welcomes the submission of short papers, from both experts as well as young professionals, students and the general public, presenting a concise analysis on innovative ideas in the field of space policy. Topics can also cover the space economy, the societal impacts of space technology, outstanding issues in space law as well as space security, and more.
As an externally-submitted and completely independent contribution, it is important to underline that the “Voice” does not represent in any case the view and position of ESPI. Thus, ESPI reserves itself a right of reply on the content or opinion expressed in the paper, at discretion of the ESPI Director. This would take the form of a brief note or comment at the end of the manuscript, of which the author will be informed prior the publication.
To ensure a smooth review and editing process, which will be conducted on a joint basis with the author, we highly recommend not to exceed four pages in length, and to provide exhaustive references.
We further invite authors to submit their paper using the template available here.
For further information, and to submit your “Voice”, please write to: firstname.lastname@example.org
