Tinkler; Series Editor: Virginia M. Jagla). Full call & submission guidelines: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B0QaXBFK-prhTGtwS2VBek5MRzA
We seek submissions to advance our understanding and knowledge of service-learning and its ability to advance access and success. In particular we seek submissions that explore how institutional and community capacity might be mutually supported, or bridged, in these efforts. In addition to theoretical papers, we desire submissions that employ methodological rigor. All papers should employ deep critical thinking and analysis.

Complete manuscripts are due by June 1, 2017, midnight (EST). All manuscripts will be submitted to the volume’s editorial review board and undergo blind review.
Prospective Reviewers: We welcome an email from interested reviewers for the 2017 volume! Please submit an email to Travis T. York at firstname.lastname@example.org noting your areas of methodological experience and areas of research expertise (especially related to service-learning) along with an attached CV.
