Local Food and Agriculture Research Journal Becomes World’s First Community Supported Journal

Wednesday, January 31st, 2018
With support from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, JAFSCD has transitioned to become an open access (OA) journal as of January 1, 2018, with an enhanced focus on the interests of communities of need, HBCUs, Tribal colleges and universities, and Hispanic-serving institutions. Eliminating the disadvantage of a paywall, adding new programs such as an author mentoring program, and expanding our consulting editor program and our JAFSCD Food Systems Research, Policy, and Practice Briefs will help us maximize the impact of JAFSCD's peer-reviewed content in disadvantaged communities.
