Voluntaris – Journal of Volunteer Services is a new academic journal which aims to combine scientific and applied perspectives on volunteer services. The 1st volume is scheduled for 2013.

Potential thematic fields for contributions:

  • Policies and Politics of volunteer services in a given national context;

  • Quality and evaluation of volunteer services;
  • Theoretical and conceptual considerations on volunteer services;

Comparative perspectives of volunteer services within a national and international scope.
