The two primary functions of the Mid-Continent Regional Science Association are to create an annual professional development opportunity through the annual conference and to support The Journal of Regional Analysis & Policy as an outlet for policy oriented research. The Journal is an open-access electronic journal that is freely available to all. This reflects the Association's commitment to make such information and knowledge as widely available as possible. But, giving it away freely and putting it online does not mean the Journal's production process is without expense. Supporting the Journal financially is what Association membership dues are used for.
