Colorism and a plethora of issues continue to affect communities of color psychologically, emotionally, physically, and socially. The mission of JOCS is to bridge the gap between academia and communities of color on issues/topics relative to colorism, diversity, girls and women of color, mixed race identity, identity issues, race, multiculturalism, multiracialism, and societal ills affecting people of color. At JOCS, we believe in bridging the gap through collaborating, educating, enlightening, discussing, reporting and sharing information. It is our belief that absent the inclusion of the masses at conferences, sharing research findings, and articles, etc. on issues affecting people of color, we cannot help bring about the change that is needed.
We further believe that by including the masses, communities of color, in collaboration with academia, will be able to collectively find solutions to help resolve many societal ills, and open the door to open and honest dialogue. By bridging the gap, we will be able to diminish the far reaching divide that continues to separate the academic community and communities of color. Accordingly, we believe that it is time for a change in the way that we think and interact with each other. Gradually, over a period of time, we will see change.
JOCS will publish high-quality content in a forum that is enlightening, educating, engaging, informative and collaborative for everyone from all walks of life. Published content will consist of commentaries, essays, book reviews, interviews, theoretical research, empirical research, practice-oriented papers, and special thematic issues. We seek submissions from EVERYONE especially members of the community.
We believe in and encourage celebrating and embracing the diversity of all people of color worldwide and with great enthusiasm, we invite you to submit content for review and publication in JOCS. We are looking forward to the academic community and communities of color collaborating with vigor and great passion. Join us, help bridge the gap, and be part of the change that is needed!
We would like to thank our Review Board for their undying dedication and commitment to JOCS. Thank you to everyone for submitting content, your patience and continued support of JOCS as we continue to grow.
