ADP Partners with Missouri State University on new eJournal of Public Affairs

The first issue of the eJournal of Public Affairs is done! Take a few minutes to read a thoughtful editorial by Andrew Lockie and Marc Cooper, both of Missouri State University, and then to read the journal’s first peer-reviewed article accepted for publication — Paul Lachelier’s “The Civil Citizen.”

I encourage you to submit your own work for review by the eJournal. You might also consider submitting an application to review for the eJournal. Read on for a full description of the eJournal of Public Affairs — a collaboration between the American Democracy Project and Missouri State University.

— Jen Domagal-Goldman, National Manager, American Democracy Project

The eJournal of Public Affairs is a peer-reviewed, multidisciplinary, open-access journal published by Missouri State University and affiliated with the American Democracy Project. By providing an academic, nationally refereed venue for such work, the eJournal aims to advance the status of public scholarship.

Editorial

Andrew P. Lokie, Jr. and Marc Cooper, Ph.D.
Jan 17, 2012 • Volume 1, Issue 1

Because the missions of the American Democracy Project and Missouri State University focus on civic education and engagement, it seemed natural for the ADP to partner with MSU to publish an academic journal focusing on the public scholarship. The eJournal of Public Affairs seeks to advance academic discussions arising out of attempts by universities to democratize their curricula and research programs.

About the Journal

The journal is focused on scholarship related to engagement in the public arena and, in particular, to the following themes:

  • Considerations of citizenship and what it means to be a citizen, including global citizenship and eCitizenship
  • Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, problem solving, and leadership related to citizenship and civic engagement
  • Assessment of civic-engagement projects
  • The relationship between social media (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, YouTube) and civic engagement

The journal publishes scholarly articles, with or without embedded multimedia in the articles, including research studies, best practices, reviews of the literature, and book reviews. The journal will also consider publishing scholarly and creative endeavors in alternate forms of media (e.g., videos). Please contact Andrew Lokie, Editor, eJournal of Public Affairs, or Marc Copper, Managing Editor, both at ejournalPA@missouristate.edu to discuss how to submit your materials to the eJournal.

Missouri State University will hold copyright to all published manuscripts. Authors will retain license to use their published manuscripts for other purposes and in other forms.

Manuscripts submitted are reviewed on a rolling basis, so authors can email them to ejournalPA@missouristate.edu at any time they reach closure. Final manuscripts will be subjected to a copy-editing review prior to publication.

Mission Statement

The mission of the eJournal of Public Affairs is to provide college and university faculty, students, staff, and community partners with a substantive forum for publishing their scholarship related to civic engagement.
