Open Rivers: Rivers & Borders Article Proposal Submission Form
For the Fall 2023 issue of Open Rivers we seek contributions that foreground the tensions and complexities of rivers and borders, and how their entanglement shapes our relationships with water and each other based on critical, thoughtful, and challenging research and engaged practices. We invite submissions from scholars, activists, artists, professionals, policymakers, community members, scientists, and practitioners who offer insight on rivers and borders, broadly conceived. We encourage prospective authors to share work that furthers our understandings of the important ways rivers both separate and connect us. We are looking for a collection of articles that will provoke meaningful action and inspire ongoing discussion.

Deadlines for Abstract Submissions:
● For authors interested in writing feature articles (3,000-5,000 words, peer review available): Friday, September 30, 2022 (EXTENDED!)
● For columns (shorter articles): Friday, September 30, 2022

We will review proposals and be in touch within approximately one month of the deadline. Please also see our submission guidelines at
