The Journal of Community Engagement and Scholarship (JCES) is a peer-reviewed international journal through which faculty, staff, students, and community partners disseminate scholarly works. JCES integrates teaching, research, and community engagement in all disciplines, addressing critical problems identified through a community-participatory process.
Some 50 scholars in more than 20 disciplines constitute the editorial board. The editors and editorial board have a goal of making JCES the leading journal in community engagement scholarship, one that is read, comprehended, and appreciated by both professional scholars and lay people.
