eJournal of Public Affairs will Accept Submissions in June

By Cecilia M. Orphan, National Manager, American Democracy Project

I am pleased to announce that we will be accepting submissions for publication in the eJournal of Public Affairs in June 2011. This early launch of the eJournal Public Affairs is due to Rachelle Darabi and Missouri State University’s leadership and support of the project.

As I mentioned in an earlier blog post, we are in the process of creating an online journal and academic social network for the American Democracy Project. This journal grew out of the work of the eCitizenship initiative. We envision the journal having the following the elements:

  • Peer Review
  • Interactive, social networking hub (a place to propose and refine research topics)
  • A showcase for pedagogical tools
  • An ongoing symposium for working papers
  • Assessment strategies for civic learning outcomes
  • A showcase for student activities and projects
We will release the Call for Submissions at the ADP National Meeting in Orlando, June 2-4, 2011. After the ADP Meeting, I will post the Call for Submissions on the ADP Blog and share it with all ADP Contacts. Please watch for it on this blog.
The results to the query we conducted in preparation for the launch of this eJournal demonstrated a profound need for scholarly outlets for engaged scholarship and research on civic engagement. It is our hope that this eJournal will deepen and advance the civic engagement movement. If you have any questions about the eJournal, feel free to contact me: orphanc@aascu.org.
