Current Issue: Volume 8, Number 2 (2019) Engaged Research, Pedagogy and Partnership – Old and New
Volume 8, Issue 2Over the years, the eJournal of Public Affairs has worked closely with a variety of scholars to bring our readers themed issues guided by guest editors who specialize in the subjects related to that scholarship. This issue, however, is from open submissions – work that comes to us unaffiliated with a special issue. We look forward to bringing you open submission issues, because while the work is produced independent of an announced topic, the mission of the eJournal attracts scholarship and commentary yielding connections and common purpose. This issue is a valuable example of the distinctly public-spirited thread that runs through so much of the work we are proud to publish.
