The International Journal of Volunteer Administration (IJOVA)

International Journal of Volunteer Administration (IJOVA)

         The International Journal of Volunteer Administration (IJOVA) begins another year with a new issue of this applied journal.  The last issue of 2008 was a comprehensive look at episodic volunteering.  If you are looking for ideas on volunteer practice, with the weight of research and experience rolled into one, this is the journal for your professional development. Its sole focus is the  practice of managing and coordinating the efforts of volunteers.

         The Journal is a refereed publication of the Department of 4-H Youth Development and Family & Consumer Sciences at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC, USA.  IJOVA seeks to provide for an exchange of ideas and sharing of knowledge and insights about volunteerism, and volunteer management and administration, both in North America and internationally.
         Formerly published by the now-dissolved Association for Volunteer Administration (AVA), The Journal is a not-for-profit service of North Carolina State.  It seeks to connect practitioners, academicians, and consultants in greater service to the global volunteer community and the professionals who lead it.

         Thanks to a grant from the Impact Fund the first four issues of IJOVA were published in 2006-2007.   They are free on the Web site.  Topics of the free issue are:

  • July 1, 2006 (Vol. XXIV, No. 1): Trends and Transitions
  • October 1, 2006 (Vol. XXIV, No. 2): Volunteerism and Health Care
  • January 1, 2007 (Vol. XXIV, No. 3): Volunteerism and the Other Sectors
  • April 1, 2007 (Vol. XXIV, No. 4): Volunteerism and Holistic Community Development.

Issue topics for ensuing volumes are:

  • July 2007 (Vol. XXIV, No. 5): Volunteer Motivation and Incentive.
  • October 2007 (Vol. XXIV, No. 6):  Insights and Innovations
  • March 2008 Vol. XXV No. 1): Volunteerism in Youth Development
  • July 2008 (Vol. XXV No. 2):  Leadership, Governance and Stewardship
  • November 2008 (Vol. XXV No. 3): Episodic Volunteering

IJOVA is now a Web-based subscription-only publication. Subscription rates as of July 1, 2007:

  • individual subscription rate of $40
  • prorated organizational subscription of $30 per member for 101-200 members, $20 for 201-500 members, $10 for 501-1500 members, and $5 for more than 1,500 members.
  • Library rate $300

IJOVA is governed by a six-member Editorial Board representing the three predominant genres of volunteer management professionals: (a) practicing managers of volunteers, (b) consultants, and (c) academicians focusing upon volunteer management and administration. Three Board members represent the United States while one member each represents Canada, Mexico, and Europe.
