The Journal of Extension (JOE) is the flagship journal for Extension education.

As of January 1st, 2021, the Journal of Extension is published by Clemson University Press.

As we enter JOE's sixtieth year, we are excited to announce a significant change to our submission policies: Beginning with issue 60(1), word count limits for most submission categories will be increased. We hope that this will allow authors the chance to more fully explore important topics in Feature Articles and Research In Brief submissions. We also remain committed, of course, to providing concise, practical articles in the form of Ideas at Work and Tools of the Trade submissions. Commentary submission guidelines have not changed. The word count limits for each category are as follows:

Feature Article: Up to 5000 words

Research in Brief: Up to 3000 words

Ideas at Work: Up to 2000 words

Tools of the Trade: Up to 1250 words

Commentary: Up to 1500 words (no change)

Prospective authors are invited to view the full submission guidelines by visiting the link in the sidebar.

Current Issue: Volume 61, Number 3 (2023)
