Gillespie Jr. — colleague and friend to Tom Lyson, and friend of the Lyson Center — was honored with the Agriculture, Food, and Human Values Society's Richard P.

Without this journal, we would spend many costly hours sorting through reports and papers. With JAFSCD our work is more effective and efficient. Essential!
— Sue Beckwith, Texas Center for Local Food
JAFSCD transitioned to an open access (OA) journal as of January 1, 2018 to meet our mission of transforming the food system by providing research on lessons learned, best practices, policy analysis, and more. With support from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, we are increasing our outreach to researchers, scholars, and practitioners of color and those working in communities of need and are enhancing our focus on the interests of historically Black, Hispanic-serving, and Tribal colleges and universities.
Eliminating the disadvantage of a paywall, adding new programs such as an author mentoring program, and expanding our consulting editor program and our JAFSCD Food Systems Research, Policy, and Practice Briefs will help us maximize the impact of JAFSCD's peer-reviewed content in disadvantaged communities.
Shareholders receive benefits in addition to increasing access to JAFSCD:
