About the Journal

What is Reinvention? 

Reinvention is an online, peer-reviewed journal, published twice a year, in April and October. Dedicated to the publication of high-quality undergraduate student research, the journal welcomes academic articles written by undergraduate students or papers written collaboratively by undergraduate students and academics, from all disciplinary areas and all universities. All articles undergo rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening, those moved to the next stage are then double-blind peer-reviewed by two or three anonymous referees.

Reinvention is an open-access journal. By 'open-access' we mean its free availability to the public online, permitting any reader access to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles, crawl them for indexing, pass them as data to software, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without financial, legal, or technical barriers other than those inseparable from gaining access to the internet itself. The only constraint on reproduction and distribution, and the only role for copyright in this domain, is to give authors control over the integrity of their work and the right to be properly acknowledged and cited.

Where did Reinvention come from? 

Founded in 2007 by the Reinvention Centre, jointly by the University of Warwick and Oxford Brookes University, Reinvention was created to embrace the notion of academia as a community, with students playing a strong and active role in that community, and aimed to support undergraduate students in their first foray into academic publishing.

Between 2012 and 2023 the journal was part of the Monash-Warwick Alliance (MWA), it was produced, edited and managed collaboratively by students and staff in the Institute for Advanced Teaching and Learning, University of Warwick in the UK and the Centre of Undergraduate Research, Monash University in Australia.

The MWA aimed to increase the global reach of each institution, providing the opportunity to exchange staff, students, ideas and information, to offer a seamless global Higher Education experience for students and staff. The relationship looked to ensure that every University of Warwick student be part of the international student community and to provide inter-cultural learning in a cosmopolitan environment through collaboration with students from other countries. Monash also sought to develop global perspectives among its students through collaboration. Monash’s Graduate Attributes Policy ensured that their students became responsible and effective global citizens who engage in an internationalised world. 

Today Reinvention is published by the Institute for Advanced Teaching and Learning at the University of Warwick, a department designed to support the University’s unequivocal commitment to teaching and the development of innovative programmes and modes of delivery which impact the student experience.
