Because the missions of the American Democracy Project and Missouri State University focus on civic education and engagement, it seemed natural for the ADP to partner with MSU to publish an academic journal focusing on public scholarship. The eJournal of Public Affairs seeks to advance academic discussions arising out of attempts by universities to democratize their curricula and research programs. In practice, this means that the journal will emphasize citizenship, especially the capacity to solve problems across different value sets; teaching and learning about citizenship; and descriptions, analyses, and assessments of partnerships between universities and agencies within civil society that advance a public good.
