Current IssueFrom the IJOVA Editor, Ryan Schmiesing, Ph.D.
This issue of the International Journal of Volunteer Administration (IJOVA) includes three compelling Feature Articles. Siordia presents data extracted from the Volunteering Supplement of the Current Population Survey from 2011-15 and shows volunteer rates for specific populations in the U.S. van Gilst and co-authors present an interesting argument for user testing of volunteer brokerage websites and share insights into the importance of usability of specific websites. Finally, Gallagher presents findings from a study focused on Peace Corps members and their early termination and overall length of service.
On behalf of the IJOVA Board, I’m pleased to share this issue with you and look forward to continuing to grow the journal in the year to come through your active readership and submission of potential manuscripts.Vol. XXXIII, No. 3 (December, 2018)Link to Full IssueThe Role of Place Attachment on Appalachian Trail Conservancy Volunteer Involvement
