The AURCO Journal Publishes Only Refereed Articles.

The AURCO Journal is a peer-reviewed, multi-disciplinary scholarly journal published annually by the Association for University Regional Campuses of Ohio (AURCO). The AURCO Journal is dedicated to advancing knowledge through empirical investigation and theoretical analysis. The articles selected for inclusion in the journal reflect the regional campuses’ distinct function in Ohio’s system of higher education—in particular, their special emphasis on the linkages among teaching, service, and scholarship. Founded in 1993 at the Lake Campus of Wright State University, AURCO is an association devoted to the professional development of faculty throughout Ohio's twenty-four regional campuses and beyond. The journal welcomes submissions from all academic disciplines and thus includes a diverse mix of writing and documentation styles, which are retained for publication. The AURCO Journal is published each year in early April and first distributed at the AURCO conference.
