Call for Papers

We are accepting papers on a rolling basis. If a paper is accepted for publication, we work to get the paper ready in a timely manor. We cannot specify when the paper will be published until all the editorial and academic peer reviews, and all edits, are complete. The full process can take anywhere between six to eighteen months. Please note that most manuscripts will require some amount of editing and revisions from the author following the review stage. This will require a certain amount of time and commitment from the author.

We welcome submissions from all undergraduate students in the UK or overseas and papers can be based in any subject or discipline as long as the author(s) are undergraduate students.*

We also publish collaborative papers, which celebrate collaborative work between staff and students. If you have been involved in a joint staff-student project and / or have written a joint paper please submit it to us, clearly stating that it is collaborative work and we will consider it for publication. Please note the lead and corresponding author on collaborative pieces must be an undergraduate student.

*In order to ensure that only undergraduate work is published, but in order not to exclude work carried out for dissertation, submissions will be accepted up to 6 months beyond graduation.
