Publication Committee Questionnaire

The Publications Committee would like your input to help us make the best choices for the journal, Rural Sociology, moving forward. The questionnaire (see this link or QR code below) is designed to find out how members of the Rural Sociological Society think about how we should approach the issue of open access and how much we should rely on the journal as a source of revenue for the RSS.
