Submit to JCES


The editorial board of the Journal of Community Engagement and Scholarship (JCES) invites the submission of manuscripts that relate to its mission: To provide a mechanism through which faculty, staff, and students of academic institutions and their community partners may disseminate scholarly works from all academic disciplines. A goal of the publication is to integrate teaching, research, and community engagement. All forms of writing, analysis, creative approaches, and methodologies are acceptable for the journal.

Regular and Research from the Field manuscripts that demonstrate central involvement of students and community partners and that advance community engagement scholarship will be given favorable consideration. Manuscripts should be free of racial, religious, gender, ethnic, or any other form of bias. Manuscripts submitted are for the exclusive publication in JCES and must not have been simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Submission of a manuscript implies commitment to publish in this journal. Authors submitting manuscripts to the journal should not simultaneously submit them to another journal. Nor should manuscripts have been published elsewhere in substantially the same form. Authors in doubt about what constitutes prior publication should consult the editor.

All manuscripts (regular, Research from the Field, Book Reviews, Student Voices, and Community Perspectives) are accepted on an ongoing basis. All submissions and inquiries should be sent to
