Student Journals & Conferences

This post provides some resources for student journals and conferences: 

As the administrator states, the website is up-to-date as long as its journals are, and therefore it is up to students to double-check the information regarding the particular journal/conference. Some journals are more reliable than others; some have an ISSN, others don't despite the fact that they are peer-reviewed. Note that some journals accept articles only if students belong to the respective department/facullty/university hosting the journal and/or if they are currently undergraduates. Others are more open and encourage submissions by international students and/or by students/researchers who might not be pursuing an undergraduate degree at the moment. Depending on the journal, different forms of writing and art may be submitted - papers, essays, photography, cartoons, poetry, posters and abstracts. 

  • Generally, student journals can be found by generating a search (using keywords such as 'student journal'; 'undergraduate journal', etc.) in the open access journal directories DOAJOpen J-Gate and JURN.  
  • Calls for papers (cfp) for student journals and conferences are published on scholarship websites. To give some examples, Caleidoscop and H-Net are great resources for cfp, events, funding in the humanities and social sciences; EMBO lists conference grants in the life sciences and Luchsinger Mathematics is a great database for mathematics, computer science, life sciences, medicine and chemistry, physics and engineering. Use subscription option (email, rss) to stay current.
