Call for Manuscripts

Impact Beyond the Profession

High quality manuscripts on topics relevant to today’s issues are sought from professionals in family and consumer sciences or related fields. The Forum provides an interdisciplinary audience for the presentation of research and applied research findings,  programs, conceptual and programmatic innovations, and scholarly exchange in the area of family and consumer issues. Articles published in The Forum often have impacts that traditional professional and academic journals do not because The Forum appeals to a diverse audience that includes educators, professionals, and laypeople.

The Forum knows no geographical boundaries. It brought an educational program originating in New Jersey to a rural county in North Carolina. An article written by a Kentucky Extension specialist changed the way lawyers in another state advise their clients. The Forum helped a nursing home in Virginia evaluate a proposed change in the way it cares for its patients. True to its mission, The Forum publishes articles that make a difference – that have “impact beyond the profession.”
