Service-Learning at CCNY
Publishing Resources for Faculty
Faculty using engaged teaching and scholarship strategies, such as service-learning and community-based research, have many outlets for publishing and presenting information about their efforts. There are peer-reviewed journals and national conferences that focus on service-learning; additionally, many disciplinary associations, journals, and meetings accept proposals focused on service-learning within a given discipline. Experienced faculty have created online resources with tips and ideas for faculty considering publishing or presenting. Below is a summary of these resources.
1. Issues in Engaged Scholarship: An Exploration of Service-Learning, Community-Based Research, and Community-Campus Collaborations.
This working paper series from the Colin Powell Center features rigorous research and critical analysis involving the theory, implementation, and outcomes of engaged scholarship.
2. "Research in Service Learning: Publishing Opportunities Resource List" (pdf)
This annotated list of 93 journals offering research publishing opportunities was developed by Gary Homana after reviewing over 500 articles for service-learning content. Most are journals based in the academic disciplines.
3. "Publishing and Presenting in Service-Learning"
Prepared by the Community-Campus Partnership For Health (but applicable to faculty in all disciplines), this website provides guidance on how to publish or present on service-learning activities. It includes a list of the major service-learning conferences, peer-reviewed journals, and other publications.
