Interdisciplinary Journal of Partnership Studies

The IJPS is an open-access, online peer-reviewed journal that can be accessed any time and anywhere.

The Interdisciplinary Journal of Partnership Studies (IJPS) shares scholarship and creates connections for cultural transformation to build a world in which all relationships, institutions, policies and organizations are based on principles of partnership.

The Interdisciplinary Journal of Partnership Studies is a peer-reviewed, open-access, electronic journal. IJPS was developed through a partnership between the Center for Partnership Studies, the University of Minnesota Libraries, and the University of Minnesota School of Nursing. The journal is produced by University of Minnesota Libraries Publishing. Dr. Riane Eisler serves as the Editor-in-Chief of IJPS with Dr. Teddie Potter, the Executive Editor.

The journal was launched in November 2014, and is dedicated to sharing new knowledge and successful applications of Riane Eisler’s partnership paradigm: a new perspective on human possibilities increasingly utilized, explored, and expanded by others. For complete information, see the article from the inaugural issue, "Welcome to the Journal".
