Journals that Publish Student Research and Writing
Here is a comprehensive list of journals that publish student research and writing, maintained by the Council on Undergraduate Research. See below for direct links to select titles.
Girl Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal for Undergraduate Research
Girls Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal for Undergraduate Research publishes the work of undergraduate students on topics such as the socialization of female adolescents, gender expectations, identity, body image, the impact of media on girls, and girl empowerment. Submissions of an interdisciplinary nature as well as from across the disciplines--for example, from Sociology, History, Literature, Cultural Studies, Education, Art, and Feminist Theory (to name a few)-- are welcomed.
International Journal of Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities
A peer-reviewed, open-access journal dedicated to the publication of outstanding scholarship by undergraduates and their mentors from academic institutions of higher learning. The Journal accepts submissions of research articles, fiction, poetry, photography, videos, and other creative works from undergraduate students in all academic disciplines.
Journal of Student Research
Journal of Student Research is an electronic, academic, multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal.
Queen City Writers
We seek thought-provoking pieces from any disciplinary perspective that explore questions and problems related to writing, rhetoric, reading, literacy broadly conceived, popular culture and media, community discourses, and multimodal and digital composing. We expect that the work will be informed by critical conversations relevant to the topic–that is, composers should incorporate timely, pertinent research to support claims. In addition, we welcome projects that experiment with form, voice, style, and delivery.
Stanford Undergraduate Research Journal
The Stanford Undergraduate Research Journal (SURJ) is an annual peer-reviewed publication of research articles written primarily by Stanford undergraduates, but also by well-qualified students at other institutions, from all academic fields.
Inquiries, formerly Student Pulse, is an online open-access academic journal focused on publishing the work of university students from around the world in a wide range of academic disciplines.
Undergraduate Journal of Service Learning and Community Based Research
The Undergraduate Journal of Service Learning and Community-Based Research adds to the increasing number of scholarly journals that invite undergraduates to pursue their own intellectual projects. We seek undergraduate contributions to the burgeoning academic conversation on service learning and community-based research. The Undergraduate Journal of Service Learning and Community-Based Research is open to undergraduate students in the U.S. and across the globe in all subject areas. All submissions will undergo a rigorous review process.
