    Without this journal, we would spend many costly hours sorting through reports and papers. With the JAFSCD our work is more effective and efficient. Essential !

To further JAFSCD’s transformative impact on the ground, we are launching a campaign to become open access—freely available worldwide. To this end, we are modeling our open access campaign on a model familiar to those involved with food systems—community supported agriculture—to become a community supported journal. We are accepting pledges through September 30, 2017, and commit to becoming open access when we reach our threshold amount.
