Abstract


This new journal, Gateways: International Journal of Community
Research and Engagement, responds to a growing global movement
of university-collaborative research initiatives. It also strives to fill a
gap created by the sparse number of journals which publish
outcomes of community-engaged research and work concerning
community engagement. We seek articles based on research that is
the result of actively engaged research-practitioner collaborative
projects, has the potential of informing community-based activities or
develops understanding of community engagement. Combining
different knowledge bases that have traditionally been separated into
academic and non-academic worlds can dramatically increase
information flowing to scholars, community leaders and activists
seeking to improve the quality of life in local communities around the
world. We also wish to encourage work that contributes to the
scholarship of engagement.
