IJRSLCE Call for Submission

The International Association for Research on Service-Learning and Community Engagement invites submissions for the fall 2014 volume of The International Journal of Research on Service-Learning and Community Engagement (IJRSLCE). IJRSLCE is a peer-reviewed online journal dedicated to advancing the study and practice of service-learning and campus-community engagement in settings ranging from K-12 to higher education to community-based organizations. IJRSLCE is published annually in English. It is international in scope, accepting articles from within and outside the U.S.; rigorous, with a focus on cutting edge theory and high quality research; and comprehensive and multidisciplinary, drawing on a variety of methodologies and disciplines.

IJRSLCE is currently seeking the following types of manuscripts:

  • Research Articles. Articles reporting on findings from empirical studies of service-learning and community engagement. Submissions should be well-grounded in the relevant research literature, reflect well-designed methodology, and present evidence-based findings from quantitative or qualitative research. Articles must report results linked to research-based questions; those that are primarily program descriptions or descriptions of service-learning/community engagement practices will not be accepted.
  • Theoretical or Conceptual Articles. Articles that examine and advance the theoretical or conceptual foundations of service-learning and civic engagement.
  • Review Articles. Articles, including reports of meta-analyses, that take a critical look at findings and practices in the fields of service-learning and community engagement to assess the state of knowledge in the field and/or the significance of existing literature.
  • Book Reviews. IJRSLCE welcomes reviews (1500 words or less) of recent publications in the field that advance the study and research of service-learning and community engagement.
