Since its start in Spring 2011, the Undergraduate Journal of Global Citizenship has been a fledgling, but active journal dedicated to publishing undergraduate research. This semester, two students are leading an effort to give the online publication some needed stability. Meghan Gallucci ’14 (English) and Courtney Carroll ’14 (International Business) are currently serving as the journal’s Editor and Marketing Manager, respectively.
Their plan includes editing recent submissions for publication and promoting the next deadline for submissions, April 30. In addition, they are looking for recruits to build on their work. They recently held an information session on Wednesday, January 29, but there was very little turn out. There are, however, plans for additional information sessions.
The journal was designed and launched by four undergraduate students with the support Dr. Janie Leatherman and me (Jermain Griffin) as part a grant from the Association of American Colleges and Universities. The journal aims to publish undergraduate research that promotes different perspectives on global citizenship. It is currently the University’s only online journal. The sustainability of the journal will largely depend on student interest and commitment to its maintenance. All queries about the journal can be sent to: email@example.com.
