Journal of Rural Cooperation

The Journal of Rural Cooperation (JRC) published articles, research reports and notes dealing with cooperatives and related rural organizations in developed and less developed countries. Topics of particular interest were cooperatives facing trends of globalization and privatization, the web of cooperative-community relationships, and cooperatives as part of such broader systems as mainstream economics, economies in transition, the social economy or related alternative paradigms.
