IN PLACE DIGITAL MAGAZINE PUBLICATION 2017

CALL FOR PAPERS

IN PLACE magazine is an industry publication that aims to support professionals across Asia Pacific.  We aim to publish articles online four times a year with the intention of making future publications more interactive and engaging.

 

To fulfill our goal, we want to hear from you and are always seeking insightful case studies or opinion pieces. IN PLACE will work with practitioners on research proposals - that explore the themes below - and is also open to interviews with influential or innovative Place Leaders and Thinkers who aim to tackle these concepts.

 

But, importantly, what do you want to read?  We are keen to hear from you, fellow place practitioners, to help us understand future opportunities on which to collaborate.
