Call for Chapters & Reviewers: Advances in Service-Learning Series

The Service-Learning and Experiential Education SIG of the American Educational Research Association (AERA) is now accepting abstracts for chapters and potential reviewers for the 2017 volume of the Advances in Service-Learning Research Series.  The 2017 volume’s working title is: Service-Learning to Advance Access & Success: Bridging Institutional and Community Capacity (Edited by Travis T.

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.
