For many potential authors understanding the process by which we evaluate and decide upon proposals is quite different from what they normally see in the journal process. To help you submit a proposal to AMP, we are making available—with the agreement of authors—examples of successful proposals. These examples are indicative of those that eventually led to publication. Please consider them as suggestions.
A few things should be noted when looking at these proposals.
The two examples of proposals given here were ultimately bundled together as a symposium, with one additional paper. However, they were submitted as independent proposals over a two-year period of time. The decision to integrate them as a symposium was made later by the editors.

However, the example below is a good one in that it comes closest to addressing the components we demand in a good symposium proposal. This set of papers was an integrated symposium on non-market strategies published in 2016. The related articles are:
