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.

Prospective authors are invited to review our updated journal policies and submission guidelines and to submit using the link on this page. Please bear in mind that there may be slightly delays in manuscript processing as we work through the production backlog from the transition.

You can view current articles as well as recent issues using the issue directory on this page. We're working to make all back issues of JOE available, but in the meantime, if you are here in search of articles published in previous issues, you are welcome to visit the JOE Archives link in the page directory.

We here at Clemson University Press are excited to help JOE continue to serve and inform U.S. Extension professionals. We appreciate your patience as we complete this transition, and we invite you to reach out directly with any questions, comments, or concerns.
