Academic and Organizational Shareholders

JAFSCD Shareholders have purchased shares in JAFSCD to support our community-supported journal model that provides free access to all JAFSCD content to everyone, worldwide. They include programs and departments at colleges and universities; nonprofits and agencies; foundations; good food companies; and others. All academic and organizational shareholders become members of the JAFSCD Shareholder Consortium, which provides guidance to the JAFSCD staff on research priorities, special issue topics, and other editorial concerns.
