The Arkansas Journal of Social Change and Public Service is a vehicle for (1) identifying and (2) addressing the pressing needs of our society. It examines issues lying at the nexus of policy, public interest, and academia, and raises awareness of topics insufficiently examined in traditional scholarly publications.
The Journal seeks contributions in a variety of formats not only from academics, but also from practitioners, advocates, and students in an effort to provide the broadest possible array of analysis and opinion. It is our hope that this approach fosters dialogue that reaches beyond a single discipline or perspective.
Reflecting the fact that world events do not occur in semi-annual installments, the Journal’s content is dynamic, with frequent updates occurring through the efforts of its staff and outside contributors.
The Journal will serve as a gathering place and a rallying point for those committed to public service, public policy, and public advocacy. We hope that a candid and open exchange of ideas will provide guidance in the formation of initiatives not only in our state, but throughout the world.
