Founded in 1982 and currently published out of the Center on Rural Education and Communities at Penn State University, the Journal of Research in Rural Education features scholarly articles and book reviews about rural education. As the journal states, "We welcome single-study investigations, historical and philosophical analyses, research syntheses, theoretical pieces, and policy analyses from multiple disciplinary and methodological perspectives." Global in scope, recently published articles include an assessment of professional development opportunities for rural teachers, an examination of student performance at rural community colleges, and rural school closures in Finland. The Journal of Research in Rural Education is available entirely online with an extensive collection of Archived Volumes.
