The Journal of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Community Development (JAFSCD) invites researchers, ag/food system development professionals, and others to submit applied research papers, critical reflection essays, commentaries, and other manuscripts that provide critical insights into small- and mid-scale food value chain development. Papers can explore specific components within a chain (a farmer co-op or association), interactions of two or more links in a chain (farmers, wholesalers, processors, retailers, and eaters), or an entire chain.
The deadline for submission is February 15, 2011. For more information on the topic and guidelines, see the announcement on their website. Also, see the submission guidelines for more information on the JAFSCD and formatting/content guidelines.
