About JAFSCD Shareholding
JAFSCD became open access — free to all, worldwide — as a way to further its transformative impact.
Our model for open access is based on one familiar to those involved with food systems: community supported agriculture (CSA). JAFSCD became the world's first community-supported journal on January 1, 2018.
Ongoing support for open access comes from the annual contributions of JAFSCD Shareholders at colleges and universities, academic libraries, nonprofits, agencies, good food companies, and foundations; from our seven JAFSCD Partners; and from individual JAFSCD Shareholders.
There are a number of ways to be a shareholder in JAFSCD:
Become a library shareholder
Become a foundation shareholder member
Become a good food company shareholder
Become an individual shareholder
As the former administrator of RI Agricultural Partnership, former chair of the RI Food Policy Council, and current president of Eating with the Ecosystem, I am thrilled to be able to support a journal dedicated to increasing understanding of the food system.
