Posted by on February 28, 2004

Dear Service-Learning colleagues,

Call for Papers:
The COMM-ORG Papers Series

Are you writing a paper on:
* community organizing?
* community development?
* community planning?
* community-based research?
* a related area?

COMM-ORG is looking for papers to post on the COMM-ORG Papers page. All papers are posted on the COMM-ORG web site ( and announced on the COMM-ORG listserv, which reaches over 900 people across more than a dozen nations. They welcome discussion of all papers on the listserv and encourage our members to also send comments directly to authors.

To submit a paper contact the editor, Randy Stoecker, at Please send papers as word processing or html files (no pdf files please, as they are still not accessible enough).

Authors retain complete control over their work, and COMM-ORG supports authors revising their Papers for submission to journals, trade publications, or anywhere. Because COMM-ORG is an on-line “conference,” papers presented on COMM-ORG are often published in journals and other official publications.

COMM-ORG welcomes papers from scholars, organizers, and scholar-organizers.

They are especially interested in papers on the following and other topics:

* What works and what doesn’t in community organizing, planning, and development.
* Real-life stories of community organizing and/or development campaigns.
* The relationships between theories and practices in community organizing.
* The history of community organizing in a changing structural-historical context.
* Linkages between community organizing and community development.
* Linkages between community organizing and planning.
* The roles of religious institutions in community organizing.
* Linkages between community organizing and social movements.
* The roles of gender, race, identity, and ideology in community organizing.
* Activist-academic collaborations in community organizing.
