Idaho Issues Online invites nontechnical writing for a broad readership. We welcome original features as well as adapted excerpts from publications that seldom reach Idaho voters and policymakers.
Idaho Issues Online publishes original and adapted essays about vital topics of public concern. Each semester, we publish an issue around an Idaho theme chosen in advance. Guest editors from the Boise State University faculty work with the staff editors to solicit features from established experts. Peer experts anonymously evaluate features for accuracy and scholarly merit.
