Community Development

Community Development has been the official journal of the Community Development Society since 1970. Community Development is regularly published five times a year, in addition to occasional special issues. It includes a range of scholarly research, as well as a section on practice that replaces the content previously found in Community Development Practice

Community Development aims to advance theory, research, practice, and teaching that serves purposive community change. The scope of the journal embraces all specializations within the interdisciplinary field of community development, including social, economic, and environmental concerns. Accordingly, the journal welcomes manuscripts that report empirical research findings; build theory, research methods, or pedagogy; evaluate current practices; or critically analyze the profession itself. Authors are strongly encouraged to link research to theory and clearly state the implications of their manuscript’s content for practice and policy.
