About this Journal

The Journal of Nonprofit Education and Leadership is a peer-reviewed journal published in the United States with a specific focus on the areas of nonprofit education and leadership. This Western Kentucky University Research Foundation publication focuses on improving research and practice and reducing the disparity between the two in the represented disciplines.

The journal's mission is to improve nonprofit education and leadership through the publication and dissemination of peer-reviewed manuscripts centered on professional practice, research, and theoretical discussions. Publishing articles which contribute to the development of theory and practice is a guiding principle of the publication. The journal solicits high quality manuscripts from authors inside and outside of academia. Authors are encouraged to submit manuscripts (relevant to nonprofit education and leadership) that present quantitative and/or qualitative research findings; conceptual or theoretical discussions; or program best practices.

Published contributions should appeal to a wide audience including practitioners, faculty, students, policy makers, and others involved in nonprofit education and leadership.

Authors are solely responsible for the content presented in their article(s). The content does not represent policies of the Journal of Nonprofit Education and Leadership or the Western Kentucky University Research Foundation.
