CM Credits for Authoring an Article

Authoring Basics

  • For every two-year CM reporting period, AICP members may claim up to 16 credits (8 CM credits per article, regardless of length) for authoring published, planning-related journal articles that are double-blind peer-reviewed. Authoring other types of articles or books will not qualify for the authoring credit.
    • A double-blind peer-reviewed article is one in which the names of the reviewer(s) are not known to the author, and vice versa.
  • New members: For credits to be applied to your first two-year reporting period, the article must be published:
    • on or after a member's AICP start date (the date that AICP dues are paid and processed and access to the CM member log is granted), and
    • prior to the end of the four-month grace period extending to April 30.
  • For those members whose two-year reporting period began January 1, 2008, articles published as early as April 14, 2007, may be claimed for CM credits.
  • Members will be able to edit and delete their claims for authoring an article from their CM log.
  • While these credits will be added automatically to the CM log, staff will review them and may request further documentation.
  • Credit may be claimed only for journal articles that are double-blind peer-reviewed. Authoring other types of articles or books will not qualify for the authoring credit.
  • Only general CM credit will be awarded and not ethics or law credits.
