Aims & Scope

The eJournal of Public Affairs is a peer-reviewed, multidisciplinary, open-access journal published by Missouri State University and affiliated with the American Democracy Project. By providing an academic, nationally refereed venue for such work, the eJournal aims to advance the status of public scholarship. The journal is focused on scholarship related to engagement in the public arena and, in particular, to the following themes:

  • Considerations of citizenship and what it means to be a citizen,including global citizenship and eCitizenship
  • Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, problem solving, and leadership related to citizenship and civic engagement
  • Assessment of civic-engagement projects
  • The relationship between social media (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, YouTube) and civic engagement
The journal publishes scholarly articles, with or without embedded multimedia in the articles, including research studies, best practices, reviews of the literature, and book reviews. The journal will also consider publishing scholarly and creative endeavors in alternate forms of media (e.g., videos). Please contact Andrew Lokie, Editor, eJournal of Public Affairs, or Darrell Hamlin, Managing Editor, both at ejournalPA@missouristate.edu to discuss how to submit your materials to the eJournal. Manuscripts submitted are reviewed on a rolling basis, so authors can upload them to https://ejopa.missouristate.edu at any time they reach closure. Final manuscripts will be subjected to copy-editing proof reading prior to publication.
