Inaugural annual volume of 'Citivas: Journal of Citizenship Studies' published

February 5, 2013

Dr. Aaron Mason, associate professor of political science, and Dr. Eric Schmaltz, associate professor of history at Northwestern Oklahoma State University, are pleased to announce the publication of the first annual volume of “Civitas: Journal of Citizenship Studies” through the Northwestern Institute for Citizenship Studies and the Department of Social Sciences.

“Civitas” is an annual, interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed publishing venue aimed at promoting scholarship concerning the humanities and social sciences as they relate to citizenship matters. The journal draws upon the talents and perspectives of a diverse editorial review board from the United States and abroad. It welcomes both qualitative and quantitative submissions by faculty and advanced undergraduate and graduate students from Oklahoma’s regional universities, two-year community colleges and other institutions of higher education and beyond.

Northwestern currently is the only state regional university in Oklahoma to operate an endowed institute that specifically makes possible this journal publication.

Mason and Schmaltz, who serve as Institute co-directors and “Civitas” senior editors, express appreciation to Dr. Kay Decker, Department of Social Sciences chair, the Northwestern Print Shop and the administration for their support.

They also wish to thank Brandice Guerra, MFA, assistant professor of art, for designing the journal cover.
The link to the journal’s digital copy, as well as submission requirements, deadlines and additional details concerning the journal is found at

Journal print copies also are available for sale at the Institute.
