Editorial Board

The Journal of Extension (JOE) is published in partnership with Extension Journal, Inc. (EJI), a consortium of Cooperative Extension System entities nationwide. EJI Board members represent the four geographic regions of the Extension system, the 1890 land-grant universities, the U.S. Department of Agriculture National Institute of Food and Agriculture, the Extension Committee on Organization and Policy, the Extension Foundation, and several other Extension professional organizations. The EJI Board sets policy for JOE and appoints Associate Editors, subject experts in the varied fields of Extension education, who ensure that JOE publishes only high-impact scholarship while maintaining a long-standing commitment to author development.
