The ninth volume of the Purdue Journal of Service-Learning and International Engagement (PJSL) is now published online and is available in print upon request from the Office of Engagement by contacting Liz Brite, PJSL editor, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Due to limited quantity, print copies are available on a first-come basis.
Visit the PJSL website at https://www.purdue.edu/engagement/pjsl/ to read and download articles written by Purdue students and faculty about different community engagement projects and experiences locally and globally.
Proposals and articles are also currently being accepted for consideration in PJSL’s 10th volume. Publication in the journal’s Fall 2023 issue requires proposals to be received no later than Jan. 31. Submissions are made directly from the PJSL website. Proposals are accepted on a rolling basis, and those received after the deadline will be considered for the following issue.
Faculty and staff are encouraged to share this information with students interested in publishing an article and are also encouraged to mentor a student writing an article.
Article types include:
- Reflective Essay – a student-authored description of a community engagement project (3500 words).
- Research with Reflection – a student-authored research article that may be secondarily co-authored by a faculty member or community partner describing an engagement project using quantitative, qualitative or mixed methods research methodology (3500 words).

- Faculty Profile Interview – a student-authored interview with a faculty member involved in service-learning and/or community engagement initiatives (1500 words).
Submissions are also being accepted for a new category of community-inspired cover art for the journal. The journal is seeking artwork, photography, digital design or other graphic illustrations inspired by community engagement, either at the local or international levels.
