    Methods in Community-based Participatory Research for Health
    Edited by Barbara A. Israel DrPH, Eugenia Eng DrPH, Amy J. Schulz PhD, Edith A. Parker DrPH
    Written by distinguished experts in the field, this book shows how researchers, practitioners, and community partners can work together to establish and maintain equitable partnerships using a community-based participatory research (CBPR) approach to increase knowledge and improve health and well-being of the communities involved.  What distinguishes CBPR from other approaches to research is the active engagement of all partners in the process. This book provides a comprehensive and thorough presentation of CBPR study designs, specific data collection and analysis methods, and innovative partnership structures and process methods. This book informs students, practitioners, researchers, and community members about methods and applications needed to conduct CBPR in the widest range of research areas, including social determinants of health, health disparities, health promotion, community interventions, disease management, health services and environmental health.

    Missouri Campus Compact is pleased to announce the release of the 2015 volume of The Journal of Public Scholarship in Higher Education. This peer-reviewed journal provides a space for scholarly reflection on engaged teaching, learning, research, and service and adds to the body of work within our field of higher education community engagement.

    The journal has been released on the JPSHE website at http://jpshe.missouristate.edu/ (located within the Issues section). The 2016 call for manuscripts and new author guidelines have also been uploaded to the website. Please consider sharing the 2015 volume and 2016 call for manuscripts with your colleagues.

    JPSHE provides a venue for higher education faculty and administrative leadership to reflect on the ways that community engagement affects work in higher education – and its outcomes for broad issues such as classroom teaching, the advancement of research and knowledge creation across the disciplines, faculty development, tenure and promotion processes, the preparation of graduate students, etc. The journal welcomes diverse manuscripts, from empirically-based examinations to critical reflection pieces, theoretical investigations, commentaries, case studies, and pedagogical and research designs. All submissions must identify implications for the growth and viability of public scholarship in the academy.

    We hope you enjoy this volume of The Journal of Public Scholarship in Higher Education, and that you will refer this publication to your colleagues as a possible journal to which they may consider submitting their original work.  Information about submitting manuscripts may be found online at http://jpshe.missouristate.edu/.
