Journal of Rural and Community Development


The Journal of Rural and Community Development (JRCD) is pleased to announce the release of Volume 12, Issue 2-3 titled “Communities and New Development Paths in the Sparsely Populated North.” We had technical issues in late 2016 that delayed the release of this double issue. We would like to apologize to the special issue editors and authors and thank them and reviewers for their patience as we adapted to the challenges faced. This includes the Editorial Board who came to the rescue for this issue and all other papers affected by the technical challenges. This issue was organized by Doris Carson, Patrick Brouder, and Suzanne la Barre. They acted as special issue editors and were very patient in working with the JRCD to bring this special issue to fruition. Their editorial describes the context and content of the issue. We would also like to thank the Editorial Board, Editorial Assistants, Copy Editors, Reviewers, and Brandon University for the support and energy they bring to the JRCD. This support includes the efforts of IT services at Brandon University who brought the JRCD into a new web platform. The JRCD gratefully acknowledges funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) through their 'Aid to Scholarly Publications' programme. We secured renewed SSHRC funding for 2015-2018. A one year extension was granted as SSHRC evaluates this granting program. This funding is central to improving the review and publication process, marketing the JRCD, and ensuring an open access publication venue for rural and community development studies. The JRCD is published by the Rural Development Institute (RDI) at Brandon University. RDI was established in 1989 as an academic research centre and a leading source of information on issues affecting rural communities in western Canada and elsewhere.
