The ARNOVA-L listserv was established in 1991 and has been in continuous service since that time. It is one of the oldest and most successful email discussion lists in the social sciences. The list enables us to facilitate the rapid sharing of concerns, interests, problems and solutions among interested researchers, teachers, practitioners and students.

Participants come from nearly 40 countries; although the majority are from North America. They represent a broad cross-section of researchers,teachers, students and practitioners interested in nonprofit organizations,voluntary action and philanthropy. The continuing success of the list is due entirely to the enthusiasm and open participation of the subscriber base.


Roger A. Lohmann, Ph.D., Emeritus Professor at West Virginia University, created the list for the benefit of ARNOVA and the international research, educational and practice community interested in nonprofit organizations, voluntary action and philanthropy. Roger supported and maintained the list for more than 15 years. The role of list facilitator was then assumed by Putnam Barber, whose service has been invaluable, and who has handled the tasks with grace and dedication from 2007 to 2012.  We welcome the new list facilitator, Jimmy Young (, who took over facilitation of the list in August 2012. Indiana University - Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) currently hosts the listserv.
