Catalog of Research
Share |


The Catalog of Research includes authors and abstract summaries from ARNOVA’s Annual Conference.


Each year ARNOVA gathers more than 800 of the best scholars, researchers and teachers interested in nonprofits, voluntary action, philanthropy and civil society at its Conference. The panoply of presentations, from these scholars and students examining the realm of voluntary / nonprofit / nongovernmental /civil society organizations and action, offers a wide-ranging vista – with some significant detail – of the most pressing subjects, topical emphases and methodologies of the latest research in this field. This catalogue is presented for those interested in questions about and developments in philanthropy, fundraising, nonprofit management, voluntary action, social enterprise and civil society, from the local to the international scale.


This catalog can be searched by key words, including author’s names or paper titles, as well as by field or subject of interest. Click on each edition of the catalog and search by words by pressing ‘Ctrl + f’, and a box in which you can enter search terms should appear in the upper right-hand corner of your screen.


The work referenced here belongs to and is best understood by the authors, so we leave it to you to contact the authors to request copies of their papers and seek conversations, as you wish. Authors’ email addresses are found in parentheses next to each author’s name and affiliation. Please note: ABSTRACTS were pulled directly from submitted papers.


What we know is that dialogue among scholars and practice-leaders around these presentations of research is critical to building knowledge and improving practice. So we hope publishing this will encourage those conversations and further collaboration; and we hope you find this a useful tool for your own work.
