Author GuidelinesOJRRP Policies & Guidelines on Submissions:What to submit: The purpose of the Online Journal of Rural Research and Policy is to expand publication opportunities for scholars in our field. The journal is a peer-reviewed, online publication. It publishes academic and community-based research, commentary, and policy articles focused on the Great Plains in a way that is of interest to both academic and community audiences. The goal is not only to present theory, but to stimulate discussion, encourage more research on rural issues, and improve access to information that promotes decision-making that enhances rural people and places.Reports of original investigations in any area of research and policy that affect rural areas are sought. Scholars, students, community development practitioners and policy makers are encouraged to submit original articles for review. We encourage submissions on topics in all disciplines: arts, sciences, education, engineering, agriculture, architecture, law, medicine, veterinary medicine, pharmacology, public health, the environment, ethnicity, demographics and others. For information on whether your work "fits" with the mission of the Journal, please contact Dr. Thomas Gould, firstname.lastname@example.org or phone him, 785-410-5146.The researcher's method is important only with regard only to its suitability for the study undertaken. The diversity of the field of mass communication should mean that we will accept studies employing a wide variety of methods.The journal recruits invited works and, at the same time, is a peer-reviewed publication. The editors will review manuscripts, send them out to reviewers and will advise co-editors. As typical with peer review, the reviewer does not know the identity of the author. The result of the review may be acceptance, acceptance contingent on revision, or rejection.Online SubmissionsAlready have a Username/Password for Online Journal of Rural Research & Policy?Go to LoginNeed a Username/Password?Go to RegistrationRegistration and login are required to submit items online and to check the status of current submissions.Privacy StatementThe names and email addresses entered in this journal site will be used exclusively for the stated purposes of this journal and will not be made available for any other purpose or to any other party.
