An academic journal about partnerships, such as Progress in Community Health Partnerships (PCHP), I believe, should practice what it preaches and seek to build sustainable and mutually beneficial partnerships with organizations, such as Community Campus Partnerships for Health (CCPH). The PCHP brochure on the Johns Hopkins University Press’ website still includes the CCPH subscription discount, but the Internet has altered how our readers access the articles that we publish in the journal and now earns most of its income from downloads of individual articles rather than individual and institutional subscriptions. While we are pursuing more Open Access for PCHP, we can better ensure the “community voice” in the journal by having its leadership reflect the communities of color that we seek to serve. We are taking several steps in that direction in recruiting a community activist as Co-Editor-in-Chief supported by several more community-based and -oriented associate editors.
