Collaborations: A Journal of Community-Based Research and Practice


This peer-reviewed, open access journal provides three portals that bring together multiple perspectives to develop community-university collaborations, reflect on their outcomes and implications for policy, practice, and public scholarship. These portals include action research scholarship; community perspectives and new ways of thinking about partnerships; and student reflections on experiences with public scholarship and service. The journal was established in 2017 through a partnership of The Collaborative Center at Rutgers-New Brunswick and the University of Miami.

The Collaborative Center, in conjunction with the Siena College Research Institute (SCRI) and Rutgers Office of Institutional Research and Academic Planning (OIRAP), conducts the

National Assessment for Service and Community Engagement (NASCE) at Rutgers. Called the RU Engaged survey, it leads to an analysis of quality and quantity of self-reported student engagement that contributes to Rutgers Collaborative Center's academic planning and project partnerships.
