Gateways: International Journal of Community Research and Engagement

(2011 - 2018)

Gateways is a refereed journal which publishes articles produced through university-community cooperative research projects. It provides an international forum for academics, practitioners and community representatives to explore issues and reflect on practices relating to the full range of engaged activity. The journal publishes evaluative case studies of community engagement initiatives; analyses of the policy environment; and theoretical reflections that contribute to the scholarship of engagement.

This partnership grew out of a cooperative relationship between CURL and University of Technology, Sydney Shopfront which dates back to the late 1990’s

The online, electronic journal creates a way for community engaged researchers and community partners to share outcomes across international boundaries. Utilizing new internet-based communication resources, Gateways works to strengthen local-to-local linkages in the global context in which we all increasingly function.
