A call for peer reviewers: JRCP accepts manuscripts submitted by authors who are committed to rural and community research, practice and policy, not only in the United States but in other nations around the world. In addition to manuscripts submitted by psychologists and counselors, our authors have included include professionals in such diverse fields as sociology, anthropology, nursing, education, public policy, public health, medicine and many others. At this time, we are actively seeking peer reviewers willing to examine both field specific and interdisciplinary manuscripts. If you are interested in becoming a peer reviewer for JRCP, please email the Sr. Editor at Mulder@Marshall.Edu

Specifics of the review process for JRCP: Because JRCP is interdisciplinary, our peer review and publication processes are somewhat unique. Contributors and readers are invited to view our Review Process section. Current and future reviewers are expected to be familiar with these processes.
