Journal of Rural and Community Development


The Journal of Rural and Community Development (JRCD) is pleased to announce the release of Volume 12, Issue 1. We are now copy editing a special double issue (Volume 12, Issue 2-3) titled “Communities and New Development Paths in the Sparsely Populated North.” This should be released in late summer or early fall. A fourth issue will be released by December.

I would 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 that although has had transitional problems, in the long run will improve the JRCD.

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.
