Volume 22(1), March 2018 Now Available

 

The Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement Volume 22(1), March 2018 is now available. This issue is especially “flavorful” with one of our most diverse collections of articles looking at community engage­ment from “boots on the ground” research studies to essays that dream of retooling higher education in ways that build upon the best practices and theories that engagement has to offer. For our first course, this issue opens with essays posing pro­vocative questions about ways university-community engagement can and should address global challenges and concerns in sustain­able and ethical ways. For our main course, a trio of research articles in this issue explore civic engagement across a spectrum of programs, activities, and community-based research. For a delicious treat, on occasion, JHEOE is very pleased to publish dissertation overviews, which are meant to highlight the work of emerging scholarly voices conducting research related to university-community engagement. We welcome these submis­sions from any discipline or area in the field of university-com­munity engagement, public scholarship, and the scholarship of engagement. The cherry on top of this issue of JHEOE once again features a number of book reviews that look at a wide range of issues through methods that put community engagement under the “microscope” to examine institutional implementation issues, or ask us to peer through a “crystal ball” that reveals a revolutionary future for universities building on community-engaged strategies.

The JHEOE editorial team is committed to continuously improve our internal processes to ensure we are handling our authors’ scholarly work in the most efficient and effective way.  Therefore, we are introducing a trimester review process allowing for a more concentrated effort to respond more quickly to our authors and expedite the peer review process.  Most importantly, it serves our mission “to serve as the premier peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal to advance theory and practice” related to community engagement.  Although you may submit a manuscript at any time, the review due dates are February 1, June 1, and October 1.
